I gave Cussler a hard time when he teamed up with his past co-writers but this connection with Grant Blackwood takes the old gent back into the realms of interesting because of the depth of detail he takes us too. Still delightfully implausible, he has his trademark cameo of course, and the new heroes sparkle with Silicon Valley savvy which is fun. A jolly good romp, not a classic but fun for all of that. Welcome back Mr C.
If we weren't told this book was co-written, I wouldn't have known. To me this was a typical marriage of modern Cussler adventure (witty heroes a dastardly villains) with the usual mix of made up history and actual history.
A fun but unnecessary read.
I had never read anything by Cussler, but this was on sale and sounded exciting. Wrong. This was part Marvel comics superhero (and heroine ) and part long, detailed history and geography class. The quest was improbable and it took forever to get to the end. No wonder it was on clearance .
Good puzzle lots of history not enough suspense learned a lot of great history could have used more character development
