5-Star Review- As with her other books, Chris Karlsen has impeccably researched her topic. Golden Chariot is engaging and full of information and insight. I thoroughly enjoyed this smart, well-written story and am looking forward to reading more from this author. Josie–Night Owl Reviews “Dan Brown underwater! I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic thriller. Charlotte Dashiell, the heroine is a nautical archaeologist with an interesting and unique theory she’s trying to prove. I appreciated the imagination behind her theory. Charlotte engaged me from the beginning where she is caught on a sinking boat to the end of the story.” Seattle Examiner The rare discovery of a ship sunk during the time of the Trojan War has been found off the coast of Turkey, near Troy.
