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

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.

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.

...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.

A fabulous series of intriguing tales from the ultra modern to the 13th Century. So gripping I couldn't put any of these books down. Only one small gripe; the number of typo errors became somewhat annoying, and I deliberately reported every one I noticed. Give the editors some work to do that should have been completed prior to publishing. However this doesn't take anything away from the books.
I will be eagerly looking out for more Scott Chapman books

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.
