DuBrul always comes up with something new. This time naturally occurring nuclear reactors producing weapons-grade plutonium. Throw in exotic settings and an ancient cult... not to mention a beautiful woman, and Mercer has another adventure on his hands.
Along with sidekick Harry and a host of cutting edge weapons, Mercer once again saves the world... and gets a new girlfriend.
As with all DuBrul's books, a large dose of suspension of belief and faith in dumb luck is required.
This is a good, fast-paced story with plenty of action and lots of tech. If you have liked the other Mercer books you will love this one.
An ok book, but for action I prefer James Rollins and Matthew Riley.
After the horrible gutting he gave his hero in the previous book, this one was a definite improvement.
It still leaves me wondering how the author will manage to move forward with his main character in the future, as well as displeased with the progression he chose in this character's lifeline - it made for some very unpleasant reading in this reader's own opinion.
All things considered, this writer could use a LOT more of the Clive Cussler type of style and gregariousness, which I hope may 'rub off' on him from his experience sharing writing with Mr. Cussler.
I will not rush to get anything that comes after this book from Mr. Du Brul as I definitely *would* to get -anything- new from Mr. Cussler.
(One may only wish there could be more truly good, fun to read authors like him....)
