In una vita sul mare con la NUMA, Kurt Austin ne ha viste tante, ma lo spettacolo che gli si presenta al largo delle Azzorre ha davvero dell'incredibile. La Kinjara Maru, un cargo giapponese, ha subito un attacco di pirati che le hanno dato fuoco e l'hanno affondata, lasciando solo una sopravvissuta: la moglie del capitano, che non ricorda nulla del terribile assalto... Perché tanta brutale ferocia? Che cosa trasportava quel cargo che non doveva arrivare a destinazione?

Clive Cussler has always written fast-paced, interesting thrillers, and he is one of a handful of authors in the action/adventure genre who I really never tire of reading. Somehow, he manages to keep his novels fresh even as he uses the same formula time and again (a historical incident involving ba Leggi tutto
I enjoyed Devil's Gate, and I especially enjoyed this Kurt Austin where you had Dirk Pitt in it!! I'm at a loss how to explain this book other than I loved it lol. It kept you hanging onto the last page as usual!
A hohum thriller novel. Didn't grab as others have from this author.
super fun, as always
We start in the Azores with Hudson Wallace (great name!) and his Lockheed Constellation and the adventure quickly goes into high gear. Then starts the story of the Kinjara Maru and where we first see our main character Kurt Austin about to embark on a journey, he thought, to join his friend Joe Zava Leggi tutto
This is a book about magnets, and all the power therein. Hardly do principles of superconducting, particle acceleration and inexplicably powerful compounds make for compelling reading. But add some stock paper-thin characters and a mildly interesting, albeit totally impossible, storyline and there's Leggi tutto
