I love Chase as a main character. A smart guy who can pretty much do anything and sort of knows it. The narrator’s performance hits him perfectly which is especially important given the way it’s written.
The story is really good. There’s twists and turns to the plot a pace that never lets up but never goes too fast either. Just the right amount of action and story. The narrator once again really compliments that sense of pace and story.
It’s a stand-alone book in terms of the way the story plays out which is always nice. I really loved the story. It’s well written with great ideas and descriptions of the environment and it moves along very well.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
There is a legend that the spear which pierced the side of Jesus during the crucification is the ultimate weapon, and another, continuing the myth, that Hitler and the others sharing his Berlin bunker, killed themselves and their families within an hour of it being placed in his hands. But to fulfill its full power, the spearhead has to be complete not, as it currently exists, with a broken tip kept by the Pope himself whilst the main part languishes in archival imprisonment.
Someone wants to get that spear and reunite tip and body. Someone is prepared to do anything to do this. And Chase Baker is out to stop it from happening.
Author Vincent Zandri's tales are always exciting, intriguing, informative and written with humour. This is no exception being a dazzling cartoon-style colouration of character, plot and location with a very sensory visit to the Sahara as well as Florence and Rome.Mostly written in the first person present, Chase Baker - archaeologist, adventurer and best selling author - is sardonic, egotistical and, if not brave then determined. Andrew Werhlen portrays him to perfection, as always: his fast paced reading echoing the quick, snappy dialogue with good intonation and appropriate expression. His voicings of the other protagonists is also good, distinctive and accented.
This is another completely stand alone fun book in this exciting series. I was fortunate in being gifted a complementary copy of The Spear of Destiny at my request, by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. Good story, good narration - recommended.to all adventure fans.
Not a bad listen. The story was a bit unbelievable and far fetched even for a fiction book. The narrator wasn’t bad his accents need quite a bit of work.
Overall I didn’t hate it but definitely didn’t love it.

Another great addition to the series. Perfect combination of author and narrator. This series is just plain fun, well written, very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable. This book is no exception. You are once again pulled into the world of Chase Baker and his adventures from the minute the story starts. As usual the story is fast paced, full of action and suspense and has an interesting storyline along with plenty of humor and sarcasm. This series is just addicting and definitley worth your time and credit.
Even though it's part of a series it can be listened to as a standalone.
Andrew B. Wehrlen is the voice of Chase Baker. These books wouldn't be the same without him. He has one of those voices that just pulls you into a story and brings it to life. Nice voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great character voices. He gives each character a distinct personality and it's always easy to tell who is speaking. His narration changes to suit the situation at the time. Perfect tone and delivery of the humor and sarcasm. Always very enjoyable listening to him narrate a book.
