Book Description

Crushed in the Antarctic ice, the wreck of a ship lies seven thousand miles away from where it was reported lost over a century ago. Nearby, the bodies of her passengers and crew wait entombed, frozen in time.

The lost ship is now at the centre of an international race against time played out against the tense backdrop of the South Atlantic as Britain and Argentina jostle for ownership of the seas around the Falkland Islands.

Peter Sparke, an international crisis manager, is brought in to uncover the truth behind the fate of the ship and the enigma of how the life of one young officer of the Kaiser's navy a century ago holds the key to the truth.

ALSO AVAILABLE ON AMAZON:
Join Peter Sparke on another exciting adventure in The Templar Vault.

    More About the Author

    Scottish born, now living in Switzerland, I am an indie author who recently found out that self publishing through Amazon is a great way to fulfil a lifetime's ambition to write.

    I have loved history and reading for as long as I can remember so writing my first book was a great way to combine my two passions.

    Writing my first novel, The Templar Vault was almost a shock as it went from a vague idea to a book so painlessly (thanks to Amazon and Publish Nation). Now that I am on my third, the excitement is actually greater- there a parts of the next book that I really look forward to writing, but I try to keep my writing in sequential order.

    Amazon reviews are the highlight of my experience, bad reviews are as instructive as good ones are enjoyable and I would love to be able to talk more to any of the thousands of people who have read my books already.

    5.0 out of 5 stars the kaisers navigator 6 May 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    After reading the writers first book I was not dissapointed with his second. He managed again to draw me in with his webs of telling two tales that come together but still tell the story of two different people and times. Combining German history with todays consequences and the journey of discovery. I would love to read more as it is not too heavy but still provides a good read. Can't wait for the next book. :D

    4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars really 17 April 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Scott Chapman has a nice writing style for a thriller writer. His work is pacey and easy to read. It carried me along with no trouble.

    As with his first book 'The Templar Vault', there are two parallel stories: one set in the present day where the protagonist, Peter Sparke, has been hired to discover the wreckage of an Argentine research ship from the early 20th century and one set just before the First World War when a German naval vessel originally discovered the wreck. The modern story has a sketchy sub-plot involving the Falkland Islands, while the story about the German naval expedition follows the subsequent career of the navigator as he is captured in World War I and returns to Germany to see the start of what would turn into Nazism.

    It's a good thing that Chapman is such a fluent writer, because this disguises rather a confused plot. The problem is that none of the characters really do very much. Peter Sparke has been made CEO of a German company that hires out what is essentially troubleshooting expertise. Much is made of his boredom organising the office furniture and that is because it is essentially quite boring. Chapman sexes things up with some high-tech computers but, such is the speed of development of technical wizardry, that these failed to impress me. Voice recognition and remote access are readily available to us all, so why should we be excited by them?

    The navigator's experiences are more interesting, though the best bits have nothing to do with navigation. There is widespread ignorance in the UK about what exactly was going on in Germany after the end of the Great War. My own interest doesn't really start until the 1930s, so I can't swear to the accuracy of Chapman's narrative, but I found it convincing.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable 14 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Fast paced and very readable. Chapman creates a very vivid storyline and both the characters and the plot lines are believable.
    I had no idea there was a revolution in Germany, and linking that, Antarctic exploration and a modern thriller works really well.
    Looking forward to seeing these characters in another book.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting historical plot... 15 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    ...but modern day characters unconvincing... The historical part of the story was more absorbing and better written than the contemporary sections. But an enjoyable read nonetheless.

    Interesting story, good, easy read.
    The background story of the main characters personal life could move a little quicker, it will take 10 books or more to see how this develops at thie current pace.
