I have nothing but good things to say about this one. To start off with, I knew very little about the Goliath, or any of the great zeppelins from this time period, but reading this novel offered a lot of great information about a forgotten period of aviation history. Of course no Historical fiction can stand as a plain old history lesson. With a great cast of relatable and colorful characters, along with a gripping plot, this book delivers on all counts. I really enjoyed this one!

Fast paced and packed with action, this book will grab your attention. Romance, a diabolical plot, and a race against time that spans continents for the heros and heroines; this story has everything it needs to keep you entertained. Highly recommend it!

As a general rule, I do not usually care for these types of adventure stories. The plot involves groups of mercenaries-fighting a bad guy who is plotting world domination. These types of stories can get bogged down in the minutia of weapons tech, and totally neglect the characters. But this is not the typical gun porn mercenary epic. Turner maintains a credible story, with characters who can be sympathized with. It would be preferable if the historic back story of the airship were more prominent, though. It ends up being a small side story. All in all --a worthwhile read

Richard Turner's novel is an action adventure with a mystery of what happened to the British Airship Goliath. In this story a historian Jennifer March and a former soldier Ryan Mitchel go through different adventures in attempt to find the British Airship Goliath which was disappeared . It is wonderfully written and the characters are well developed , intriguing which made me reading. The action was almost non stop and the book was hard to put down and so captivating. Overall, great book with full of action that I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes to read thriller adventure novel.

“Goliath” was excellent! I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t put it down until I finished it. It had so many twists & turns that it really kept me guessing. I love action-packed, fast moving mysteries so this one really satisfied my literary hunger. It has all the great elements of a classic whodunit, detective, Hollywood drama cliff hanger. The characters are brilliantly done as well. I instantly fell in love with both Jennifer & Ryan and felt like I was a partner in their quest for the truth and the drama they encountered moment by moment. I don’t want to give too much of the plot away as I don’t want to ruin this exceptionally good read for anyone… but quite simply… this book is brilliant! 5 big stars!

Great action book. I read it from start to finish, before I put it down.  B&N offered it on nook, Free! I think that was an insult to this great author. B&N offers to their customers, series 1, 2 and 4.  They do not have series 3 available. I think that is poor customer care. Or whom ever is in charge, needs to 'get on the ball'!.

I like Turner's style of writing. The intricate plot moves at a good pace and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The characters are plausible and well described with enough scene description to enhance the story rather than slow it down.

This was my first Ryan Mitchell thriller and it most certainly won't be the last. Turner is up there with Clive Cussler when it comes to high speed adventure which was top notch!! Excellent story and character development. Vane

This was a kick-butt read! The action was swift and the story intense. The characters where great, with fantastic chemistry between them, which made the life-and-death moments that much more nail-biting. Great story!

I came across Goliath while looking for a fun, historical, adventure novel. This book proved to be exactly what I was looking for. The plot was super fun and well laid out. The characters were ones that I actually could relate to and enjoyed reading about as they raced across the world and back. There were plenty of twists and turns surrounding the Goliath ship and many questions that Jennifer and Ryan needed answers to before they could figure out what was really going on. Goliath was jam packed with action, adventure, suspense and even a bit of romance along the way. I thought that the author did a great job of mixing history with a bit of future throughout this book. I will definitely be checking out more from this author soon.

Sort of like The Oregon Files books without the ship. A fantastic cast of characters in an extremely well written thriller. Definitely getting the rest of the books in this series.

This was a fascinating story from start to finish. I feel like it's adventure thriller that has something for everyone. Goliath has mystery, military action, exotic locations and a little romance. Each of the main characters good guys and bad guys, have great back stories and seem well-rounded. The Goliath itself was an intriguing part of the story. I loved the historical account of what happened to it This was a satisfying read that I'd recommend to thriller readers. This story is solid, fast-paced and tightly plotted. Excellent read.

From beginning to end the action never stops. A worthy successor to Clive Cussler.
