    " Dirk Pitt never disappoints. Enjoyably predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/8/2011

    " Whatever Dirk Pitt, his kids and his friends are up to, it's a must-read for me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 6/7/2011

    " Another great Clive Cussler thriller - almost seemed to be too many stories going on but it all came together in a great way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 6/3/2011

    " A fun Dirk Pitt novel. The funny thing about this book is it takes place in 2012, and a radical brother/sister duo are trying to create chaos and uprising all across the Middle East. With current events how they are, the whole book is a little ironic. But this book is good for a fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 4/28/2011

    " Don't judge. I read Clive Cussler for the same reason I watch cheesy disaster movies: no brain power required and the good guys win. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred | 4/27/2011

    " Silly but entertaining, ties in history and science plausibly "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 4/20/2011

    " Not a ton of substance to a Dirk Pitt adventure, but this one - like the others - is full of action and adventure and an interesting story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheldon | 4/15/2011

    " typical for the dirk pitt series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/12/2011

    " Better than the average Dirk Pitt book because it had all the characters involved and the plot was modern and interesting. I had to read this book in little snippets so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I would have liked but it was still a good "escape" book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anandh | 3/27/2011

    " While the theme of terror in the Islamic world gets a bit too boring, the book weaves in historical events in a way Ken Follet and Wilbur Smith would be proud of. Good read, even during 1 entire session! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 3/26/2011

    " Another enjoyable read by the Cussler duo. "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
