I keep reading Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt stories, even though they drive me up the wall. This one had ALL my Cussler pet peeves: 1.) Dirk Pitt as irresistible, life-altering stud-muffin. Example: She was put through to his secretary, who informed her that Pitt was out on vacation and had not returned Leggi tutto
This is the second Dirk Pitt adventure I have read from Clive Cussler. The first, Raise The Titanic! , didn't impress me, but it intrigued me enough to pick up another offering from the author.

Good Guys Win Full of thrills. Great characters, even the bad ones. Unlikely tough guy is hit. Easy to read, hard to put down. The love interest is a great fit too. I'll continue the series.
3.5 stars A kind of weird story.
Es muy del estilo de los otros que he leído de Dirk Pitt, pero aquí lo he visto más enojado, como menos controlado y más humano. El resto más o menos igual, con muchos viajes, aventuras, su historieta de amor, su historia tierna y su lado patriótico. Es que es lo que se llama "un buen chico american Leggi tutto
This book has Chinese stereotypes that make Fu Manchu look like a Nobel laureate. Read if you need something brain dead or if you enjoy "cabin in the woods" stories and don't mind a protagonist that seems physically young but who has the cultural sensitivity of a patriotic, battle-hardened seventy-s Leggi tutto
I enjoyed this read. Reality has to be suspended and once you have overcome that this turns into a ripping yarn involving a mad financial megalomaniac. Dirk is almost an American 007 licenced to kill.
