Great for any Clive Cussler fan. It offers the usual twists and turns that is based on some historical event described in the prologue. Kurt Austin is the protagonist here.

Clive Cussler has created a new bunch of NUMA supersleuths !!!!! From the back of the book - "When Kurt Austin, the leader of a courageous NUMA exploration team, rescues beautiful marine archaeologist Nina Kirov off the coast of Morocco, he becomes the next target of Texas industrialist Don Halcon. A madman bent on carving a new nation out of the southwestern United States and Mexico, Halcon's scheme hinges on Nina's recent discovery involving Christopher Columbus, and a priceless pre-Columbian antiquity buried in the battered remains of the sunken Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria." From me: With the introduction of a new "hero" Kurt Austin, many of Cussler's old fans may go into mourning for their old hero "Dirk Pitt". Steady-On old fans, if you are uncomfortable with this new guy, just substitute "Dirk" for "Kurt" and you'll find that this one is worth your time. As with all Cussler's books, reading this one will not increase your IQ! But, if you have that inner adventurous spirit, and want several hours of pure escapism and loads of fun (now, be honest, isn't that the real reason you read Clive Cussler books?) - read this one!Just remember - Kurt Austin is really Dirk Pitt in disguise (not really, but it will sooth the "Pitt" fans.) Enjoy the book - I did immensely!

Cussler's books mostly take place deep in the ocean..the main character is likable but can be ruthless.......I want to live in his neat place..LOL
