Chase Baker and the Golden Condor
Chase Baker Thriller Series, Book 2
By: Vincent Zandri
Narrated by: Andrew B. Wehrlen
What an exciting series! Indiana Jones move over! Chase Baker and his agent, along with a team set out to find an ancient flying machine. I mean ancient as in Inca times or later. Is it from aliens? Does it really exist? It shows up on Inca markings and stories are told of it and rumored about it but does it really exist?
The man who sent them, his father went searching for it over 40 years ago and never came back so it is a very dangerous mission. Chase is all about the danger. Danger is what they face. Lots of adventure, excitement, suspense, and so much more! Never dull! Fast paced, and exciting situations, interesting characters, and lots of twists and turns. A touch of the supernatural thrown in for good measure! Just like Indiana Jones! Great fun!
The narrator is an absolute dream! The perfect voice for this book. You can feel the excitement in his voice, the suspense, the danger, and all the other emotions encountered. He performs the women's voices and the different men perfectly. Great job! I enjoyed this book completely!

I was making my way backwards through the series and this was definitely more sexier ... in an unexpected way. Clearly, it was written more eloquently or discreetly or tactfully in other books.
The plot and world building lacked as Chase was busier ... getting busy.
I don't think I'm following Chase Baker anymore. His more recent works are better than his earlier. In every sense of the phrase.
Any additional comments?
This is a fun book with great, larger than life characters and a fast paced King Solomon's Mines type adventure. Author Chase Baker and his recently impoverished, but sexy, literary agent, Lesley, set off for Peru with two companions. They have all been employed by a rich but dying man to find the location marked on a map drawn by the man's father more than half a century before. Of course, it all goes wrong ...
Chase Baker, archaeologist, explorer and author in search of a story is telling the tale as it happens and so narrator Andrew B.Wehrien becomes Chase for this reading. Fast talking with a nice sardonic expression, he delivers a fine performance of the adventurer himself as well as voicing the other protagonists with nicely differentiated speech (although one did have a most peculiar accent). His performance added to the light-hearted excitement of the story. All jolly good fun.
My thanks to the right's holder of this Chase Baker story, who gifted me a copy via Audiobook Boom. I listened to it in one sitting enjoying the sexy silliness and swashbuckling adventure enormously. Just the thing to brighten a miserable morning. Or evening. Or weekend ... Whatever.
As I said earlier, a good, fun story, well narrated in technicolour. Enjoy!
