For fans of Cussler, etc. this is a great read. Some twists, some predictibility. The hero always gets the girl, and the world is always saved. The action is good and the writing is great.
What I am at odds with in this book is the engineering relative to liquid nitrogen. It is a big stretch of the imagination to conceive of an unpowered container that can hold such liquids for months. ... Otherwise it is an interesting scenario.
Action adventure in the best selling tradition of Dale Brown, Clive Cussler, and Tom Clancy...
A good read on a long winter's night!
SLow start but worth keep reading,
A lot te same as first book

They're helped by Aggie Johnson, the beautiful daughter of a petrochemical magnate, who feeds company secrets to the eco-terrorists. But Kerikov hasn't accounted for geologist Philip Mercer. Mercer knows all the right people in all the right places... or is it all the wrong people in all the wrong places?
