Reporter Kate Kilroy accepts an assignment to travel on the Valkyrie, a German ship veiled in secrecy for decades after it was discovered adrift in 1939 with only one passenger aboard, a baby boy named Isaac Feldman.
Obsessed with understanding his origins, Feldman has spent a small fortune restoring the Valkyrie to try to solve the mystery. Assembling a team of experts and sparing no expense, he aims to precisely recreate the circumstances of the Valkyrie's doomed final voyage. Little does Feldman or his team know that the ship has an agenda of its own. As the Valkyrie begins to weave its deadly web, Kate realizes that she must not only save herself, but the world as she knows it.

I would certainly recommend this audiobook simply because although at times you will have to stretch the boundaries of your imagination it is a story that is so engrossing you will lose yourself in it
Just a very good, flowing storyline with a decent ending to boot!!
Angela's peformance is superb throught but for me her highlight is easily Senka Simovic
Mystery, suspense, thought provoking
If you haven't heard (or read this) yet and you enjoy a good Sci-fi romp this will be perfect for you.
"Great story! "
I loved this story. It kept my attention through the end :-) I thought the plot was good and I was in suspense until the last chapter.
"I love this story"
Yes, and I have. The author draws the reader back and forth in time. I love ghost stories, and this is one great story. I felt chilled at times listening.
Probably Twisted by Andrew E. Kaufman. Both authors and both narrators did a great job of presenting the ghost-like, psychological aspect of their stories.
It's difficult to say because the author builds suspense throughout the story. However, the narrator makes that suspense come to life with her powerful voice and energy.
Yes, but I couldn't. I had life to attend - darn it.
Excellent, five-star story and narration.
"Don't waste your credit."
The plot summary sounded really good. However, the book turned out to be really contrived & did not flow well. Also the (graphic) sex scenes were gratuitous & unnecessary - as if the author thought, "Okay, time for another sex scene."
I was looking forward to listening to this book, and was really disappointed.
Something well-written. This book was not.
Has it all, history, mistery, sex. As you start to read you wont want to stop, i would read it again
"The plot plops"
The book began well. A sad writer is chosen (for her looks?) as a reporter for an unusual journey in an old ship. As the plot thickens at the end, it becomes unbelievable. Someone who was apparently a good guy becomes the bad guy- a common plot ploy. However, his hatred and eventual demise don't seem true to his earlier character. I did not enjoy it and did not finish the book.
"phenomenal and unexpected"
this is a captivating story and I absolutely loved it. highly recommend this amazing book
"interesting ghost story. well presented storyline"
I enjoyed the book.I looked forward to be%ing back to it. reader was very good
"ugh weird Nazi mismash with spirits, disappointing"
Disappointing starts off great then the (spoiler) spirits appear. Then logical framework disappear.
Audio book OK, but just ends poorly. Too long.
"It's a ok ghost story with geat narration."
I was hoping for a clever time travel story or something along those lines bur this was a basic ghost story - well written and narrated, but lacking.
The ship is more or less an unnecessary prop and the story never explains or uses Nazis, might as well been aliens or cavemen.
While some have posted the main themes of Nazis and time travel, this really didn't capture either of these. This is simply a ghost story set at sea with a psudo-clever twist which ultimately doesn't matter to the rest of the novel.
Very good ghost ship story kept me entertained Thur the entire book I'd recommend it to any one.
