The Last Gospel - David Gibbins I like David Gibbins books. They are actionpacked, well researched, and filled with intriguing plot twists. This was not exception. I enjoyed following Jack and Costas search for the Last Gospel. From the first dive outside Sicily, to the end outside Nasaret. As they searched they dodged the mafia, corrupted churchmen, and cops. Most of all, there was a feeling of visiting all those places. Diving outside Sicily, cloak crawling in Rome, walking in a rainy London. And I loved that mix action and historical sense. That said, I had one big problem and a couple of minor ones, with this book: David Gibbins need to explain the historical aspects. Yes, I understand that he is an archeologist, and that he knows a lot of things, but I felt that it bogged down the pacing.Also, I had trouble with how Jack sometimes just happened to have done exactly what they needed 20 years earlier. It felt like the author was taking the easiest way out.
