Publisher's Summary

Did Chinese explorers arrive in the Americas before Christopher Columbus? Renaissance man and adventurer Chase Baker is hot on the trail of this hidden piece of history in the woods of Minnesota, home of the famous Kensington Runestone. The alleged proof is scrawled on a runestone written by Vikings centuries ago.

The only problem is it's guarded by a mythical creature called the Wendigo at the bottom of a treacherous place called The Pit, where few have survived.

Add in gun-toting neo-Nazis bent on finding the runestone first, and Chase faces one of his most thrilling adventures yet. Loaded with action, suspense, and clues to a cover up spanning centuries, this installment of the award-winning Chase Baker series is sure to satisfy.

Ideal for fans of Dan Brown, Clive Cussler, JR Rain, and others.

    Any additional comments?

    The excellent Vincent Zandri returns again as the adventurer archaeologist with a penchant for danger, Chase Baker. This time, Chase has been recruited by a Chinese journalist to act as her protection as she and her tracker journey into the wilds of America looking for The Pit. Something, it seems, is buried there - but what?
    This tale of Chase, the creation of novelist Vincent Zandri, is this time recounted by author Benjamin Sobieck, but it's still the same Chase Baker, getting himself into hot water as he searches for the missing artefact and/ or battles with baddies. A short and fun to hear book, the narrator Mr.Zandri perfectly matches story and reading, as always, becoming the slick talking, cynical adventurer as well as individually and distinctly giving voice to the other protagonists.
    A good addition to the series.

    "All is not as it seems..."

    What seem like a simple trip into the wilderness is anything but. Within minutes shots are fired and the action begins.

    There's a lot going on for such a short story and it seemed like there's always something happening or being discovered that changes what I thought was going on.

    Interesting and fun to listen to the narration helped to build the tension and drama that the story has in spades. The character voices as well done and the overall delivery added to the story.

    This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    Story
    "Entertaining, but short lived."

    An exciting if somewhat short tale of adventurer Chase Baker looking for a lost artifact in the northern woods of Minnesota. Both the Chinese and the Neo-Nazis are also interested in this artifact and have no problem using violence to acquire it. The location called The Pit has its own history as a dangerous place guarded by a mythical creature known as Wendigo. Chase will have to balance his Chinese client with the Neo-Nazis on their tail and the legendary Wendigo in their midst. I liked the book, but it was quite short. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    "Get Ready for Another Chase Baker Thriller"

    Once again, our protagonist Chase Baker is caught up in an unlikely twist of events.
    Get ready to wonder through the north woods and fall into a full blown fast action thriller with ancient secrets, Mythical creatures, and danger at every step. Add in neo-Nazis with guns who will to do anything to find the treasure first.
    If you enjoy action thrillers or Chase Baker, you will not be disappointed/
    All though shorter than other Chase Baker story it is not lacking in fast paced excitement/

    Great narration that helped to build the tension and drama. The character voices as well done and the overall delivery added to the story.

    "Must be fan fiction, read the series first"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I really feel like this was authorized fan fiction geared towards people already familiar with the characters and story line. Having not read or listened to any of the series (written by Vincent Zandri), I felt like I was missing a lot. From the beginning of this book, I didn't understand why Chase was doing what he was doing. All in all, I'm having a hard time quantifying my experience. The narrator was good, and had I not spent the entirety of this book questioning what I was missing in the rest of the series, I might have enjoyed this a lot more. It wasn't terrible, mind you, it just left too much unanswered for me to be all in.

    "Another entertaining, quick Chase Barker listen"
    If you could sum up Chase Baker and the Vikings' Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Fun. Quick. Adventure.


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

    The plot didn't necessarily keep me on the edge of my seat, but it was definitely an enjoyable ride. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the runestone and a bit of the back history surrounding it. Chase Barker, Bayou (sp.) and the neo-Nazis kept things moving along and lead the reader on a fun adventure.


    What about Andrew B. Wehrlen’s performance did you like?

    Andrew Wehrlen delivers another solid performance as Chase Barker. He does an excellent job bringing the characters to life and reads with an easy to follow cadence. He handles the various characters well too, so I'm never left wondering which character is talking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Modern day Indiana Jones. The reason that I say this is that the Chase Barker series involve humor, adventure, ancient civ/artifacts and a good story. Even though this a shorter novella length, it doesn't feel rushed or like it's missing something. Each story feels like a standalone and I never feel like they missed the mark by leaving holes in the story.

    "This is part of a series."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    For starters, In the audible title I would mention that this book is part of a series. Neither that or book # is mentioned in the book's listing. Which is kinda misleading, imo. Even though the story itself is standalone, new listeners suffer because the book doesn't spend time on the main character introduction or character development. We are thrown right into the mix of things, without any background of the character. I felt lost at times.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting aspect is already on the cover - the runestone. Historians debate to this age who was the first to reach the Americas and this book exploits that intrigue.

    The neo-nazi angle was the least interesting part. Looked like they were in the book just to play the "typical villains". I really didn't care about their actions or villainy.

    "A good short story that left me wanting."

    This is a story with great characters, a good plot, and engaging action. However, I felt like I walked into the story after the first third had already played out. Then the rest of the story's premise, while interesting, was delivered meagerly enough to serve the storyline but it could have sustained so much more back story, historic mystery, its implications and lore, etc.

    The narration was well done and easy to listen to. Above par, in comparison to many other Audio titles I have listened to.

    "History Meets Sci-Fi and I Liked It!"


    I'm usually not one for anything outside the realm of Contemporary. However Benjamin Sobieck's Chase Baker (and narrator Andrew B. Wehrien) has drawn me in. Sobieck has the talent of Clive Cussler (or vice versa.) Writing stories that are on the edge of conspiracy/reality/science fiction… Please read the Publisher Summary included in the books page – as it is pretty detailed and I cannot add to it without spoiling.

    Narration: I have only experienced the performances of Andrew B. Wehrein in the Chase Baker series. His voice is just right and to have a narrator throughout the series increases fluidity and consistency. He has all of these talents.
