Summary

Chase Baker, Renaissance man and adventurer is back. When a flirtatious, beautiful young woman by the name of Andrea Gallo claims to be a fan of his pulp novels, Chase can't resist reciprocating in the lusty attraction. But that night, while the two enjoy a romantic evening of wine and love in his Florence apartment, he is suddenly kidnapped from his bed by two thugs who turn out not only to be working for Great Britain's infamous MI-16, but also working side-by-side with Gallo. Duped once again, Chase wants to bid his newfound romance a quick "arrivederci" and be on his way. But when they tell him they desperately need his help to uncover a legendary cave in the Northern Italian forest before a team of Russian and Iranian hardliners do, he feels compelled to help out, regardless of their rather unsound method of capturing his attention.

But what's so special about the cave?

It's said to be the very same cave that Leonardo da Vinci discovered as a young man back in the mid-15th century, and where he not only learned the secrets behind his many inventions, including the airplane, but where he was exposed to the very meaning behind God's divine plan for mankind. Why is the MI-16 so desperate to uncover the cave before the bad guys do? Whoever discovers it first will possess the knowledge and the power to take over the world.

“Because after all, X marks the spot”

If you’re looking for an easy to listen to, Romantic, Action story, then this is for you.
A little cliched and unbelievable at times, but enjoyable nonetheless.
I’ve only listened to book 1 before this, so don’t worry, this book works well as a stand-alone if you haven’t heard all of them yet.
Well narrated with good voices.
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

"You actually live your adventures."

What did you like most about Chase Baker and the Da Vinci Divinity?

Slightly different from earlier Chase Baker novels, this one is a lot more personal and written in the first person. After being recruited by MI 16 to find da Vinci's legendary cave, Chase's quest goes pretty smoothly - well, as smoothly as they ever go.. Apart from the Islamists. And the Russians. And then, there's Andrea....

Another great fun adventure book, from Vincent Zandri, recounting the astonishing exploits of the ' best selling ( but not as famous as Dan Brown ) author' , Chase Baker. Narrator Andrew Wehrien becomes the man himself, with a warm, natural reading perfectly suited to Chase's sardonic, sometimes self depreciating but bold personality. His voicing of the other protagonists is also individual, distinct and fitting ( with the brief exception only of the Poseidon twins, whose English Cockney to this Brit's ears sounds more like a poor imitation of New York gangsters). His pace followed the action and the whole was a superb performance.

My thanks to the rights holder of Chase Baker and the Da Vinci Divinity for gifting me my copy, via Audiobook Boom. I have followed this exciting and humerous series almost since the beginning. Each book is completely stand alone and very enjoyable but I think that this is one of my favourites.

Boring and strange

The story was weak and not well written, Confusing with a lot of things that didn't make sense. The love story was really bad and the fact that they called each other boyfriend and girlfriend really irritated me. In my opinion it was an attempt to write like Dan Brown, but it failed. Luckily it was not a long book

An adventure story...

That takes a turn for the truly weird. And I didn’t think it was possible for it to get even more weird, then it does. If you’re a fan of Indiana Jones and wanted to see those movies merged with the X Files... this is the book for you.

My new favorite Zandri series. Truly enjoyable

I have listened to a number of Zandri's books now from several different series, so that should tell you that I enjoy his writing. The Chase Baker series is my favorite of the bunch. It has all the things that I like...adventure, action, danger, a solid alpha male lead, and beautiful women, but this book, at least, is set somewhere other than Albany, NY. I have nothing against Albany, but when you have three other series, all set there, is loses some of its appeal. But this one is set in Italy, so it gave me a chance to "visit" someplace exotic.

On top of all the other great parts of this book, this one is also a treasure hunt, so that just adds to the fun.

I had no problem starting with this book 6 in the series...I did not feel that I was missing out on anything.

Wehrlen did a great job voicing the many characters throughout the book.

Really loved this one!

Chase Baker and the Da Vinci Divinity
A Chase Baker Thriller Series, Book 6
By: Vincent Zandri
Narrated by: Andrew B. Wehrlen
I like books looking for artifacts or proof that could change history, this is one of those. Do you like hints of UFOs , a secret book hidden by Leonardo Da Vinci, action, adventure, romance, and touch of the unknown? Then this is for you! I loved it! Never boring! Twists, turns, and with dialogue.
Wonderful narration!

One of the best Chase Bakers!

What made the experience of listening to Chase Baker and the Da Vinci Divinity the most enjoyable?

I think I enjoy listening to Mr Wehrlen reading to me. He's the best mystery/suspense/thriller narrators I've encountered.
I usually don't like third person present tense, but this narrator does a flawless read, allowing me to overlook some of the tedious mundane tidbits.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This one certainly did. It had several twists and life-or-death and 'omgoddess! What are you thinking, Chase?!' moments. I loved it!

Have you listened to any of Andrew B. Wehrlen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to several books he has narrated. I would pick up a book, simply because he is reading it.

Grand Slam..!!

I love a sharp dose of authenticity , Action and wity humor ..when a story is told arrow-straight and fiction feels like reality, when you may have never been to a certain place or met someone like the character you're reading, and yet you feel the narrative's truth. Vincent Zandri definitely has a gift for this...in spades. The writing is tensile-taut, the story lines are interwoven seamlessly, and all the gory details are nicely intact.

You can't imagine a gentleman like this author ever knowing an earthly thing about the underbelly of life that this novel depicts, but his writing resounds with the tone of real people imbedding a real place in time. The story breathes you in and holds its breath as the tension mounts ..

An intricate plot and fleshy, memorable characters, the expressive narrative and relentless pacing will no doubt cause Chase Baker. and the De Vinci Divinity to be remembered as indeed one of the best action novels of the year..
