Publisher's Summary

In 1939, a secret airship departed Nazi Germany in the dark of night filled with some of the most influential people of its time.
Its cargo: a complement of rich Jewish families carrying their most valuable possessions. One such item among them was as dangerous as it was priceless.
The airship never reached its destination.
In 2015, Sam Reilly, a marine biologist and wealthy son of shipping mogul James Reilly, discovers a missing clue about the lost airship, and what follows is a violent treasure hunt kept secret by the most powerful men in the world today, driven by their greed and need for that which all are motivated: the opportunity for unlimited power.

Action.history,mystery,adventure you have it all.

This is a good book with well constructed characters and a very interesting story.
The Narrator is a Pro and helps to keep the listeners interest.

Without giving details the story carries relevance to anyone who has any knowledge
of recent history.

"You got it"

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Airship to be better than the print version?

N/A - have not read the print edition

What other book might you compare The Last Airship to and why?

This book has the generic action hero of a rich white man saving the day, so it's not all that different from say, Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler. You've got your hero, your girl, your best friend, against a Middle-Eastern warlord controlling German forces that are arrayed against the American hero, Sam Reilly.

What aspect of David Gilmore’s performance would you have changed?

Gilmore did not have strong voicing, most of the characters sounded the same. Only the character with a thick German accent stood out as a unique voice. The review's title has a phrase you will hear very often, almost always with the same inflections despite being supposedly said by different characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not particularly, because this book seemed to force cliffhangers at the end of chapters, by throwing a twist into a situation that just moments ago had survived another twist. I listened to this in 3 sittings the first time through, which felt more natural than when I marathoned this book in one sitting on the second 'listen-through'.

Any additional comments?

Great action adventure introducing Sam Reilly

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I have to say that this author is going into my favourites pile immediately. His characters are full on action men and women. They have fun, do amazing escapes from danger, come back from situations which should be lethal and still have time to save the world.

If you love action adventure movies and books along the lines of Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly et al, then you will love Christopher Cartwright. He knows how to write a great plot and bring in characters that you actually like and want to see succeed.

The story itself has some historical references and some interesting side information about mountain climbing for the true adventurer, using genuine places to bring some life to the story.

I love the characters of Sam Reilly and his best friend Tom, they are like every adventurous man you would ever want to meet, conventional and unconventional at the same time.

I'm looking forward to my next instalment.

Your new action hero! Read this series!

A brilliant story. It actually made me really want to have a go on an airship which is strange as guess what (not a surprising spoiler) the airship doesn't last long. Sam Reilly is a great character. A mixture of your typical square jawed hard guy hero mixed with someone looking for something and also someone who wants the best for others and the environment as that's sort of his day job. I also strangely liked Sam's father. A total megalomaniac and he's pitched that way but in his own detached strange way he's pretty cool. We have an interesting love interest/match for Sam with a decent and also strong female lead. I liked the search that we go on.

It's a roller-coaster and its a good one!
Action/thriller books are often (in my opinion) hard to narrate as you have to do decent characters and story and then step up for the action. That's done really well here! I loved it from start to finish, and I most definitely want to see what adventures Sam is going to take us on.

What a great book.

What a great book. Well thought out and very well written. The characters were interesting and the story line kept my interest. This book kept you me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was next. It pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you wanting more. I recommend this book to all. I can’t wait to read about Sam Reilly next treasure hunt.
