Giugno 2000 la squadra missioni speciali della NUMA, al comando di Kurt Austin, affiancato dall'ingegnere Joe Zavala, salva da un attentato l'archeologa Nina Kirov, autrice di una scoperta straordinaria destinata a sollevare un interrogativo inquietante: è possibile che Cristoforo Colombo non sia stato lo scopritore del continente americano? Nel frattempo, l'archeologa Gamay Trout trova, in alcune sculture dello Yucatan, la prova di contatti tra i Maya e i Fenici in epoca precolombiana e ipotizza un quinto viaggio di Colombo, partito in segreto per recuperare un tesoro di inestimabile valore con l'aiuto di una 'pietra parlante' di origine Maya. I due fatti sembrano misteriosamente collegati all'affondamento del transatlantico Andrea Doria...

A madman wants to create a new nation from the Southwestern US and Mexico, and the only one standing in his way is Dirk Pi--I mean Kurt Austin. Kurt rescues a woman from a hit team that massacred an archaeological dig, which also destroyed some of the artifacts found. Kurt and his team start a game o Leggi tutto
Meh. Think there's a reason why I haven't picked up one of his books for at least 5 years. In my defense, I was on vacation and finished the books that I had brought along and this 'novel' was one of the only reasonably good choices available at the hotel gift shop. At one time in my life, I thoroug Leggi tutto
Hello random book for a random challenge! Serpent had an interesting synopsis.. but in the end was just kind of meh. I have never read a book from this author before so I didn't really have any expectations for it. I thought Kurt was interesting guy that kind of reminded me of Indiana Jones? However, Leggi tutto

I have had this author on 'To read' radar for ages. And so after taking up some fellow bookworms advice on where to start I thought I would go with Serpent as its number one in the NUMA files and the thought of NUMA interested me. The books introduction is about the Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria Leggi tutto
Remekül szórakoztam. Igazi kalandregény régészettel, gyilkossággal, titkos társasággal.
3.5 stars. I read this book for a book club pick. The first 200 pages or so were rather boring. I found consistently the author was using very rich, lengthy description, reminding me a bit of The Fellowship of the Ring , but rather than describing the strange and wondrous, he seemed to be always only Leggi tutto
This is a seriously convoluted tale revolving around the Spanish mafia from Christopher Columbus's time and the Mayan culture. Two things that really shouldn't have anything to do with each other. Did Columbus really discover America? That is the ultimate question and if not, who did? And why are ar Leggi tutto
Probably the worst Cussler book I'll ever read, from what I hear, and so far it is the worst I've read. The plot is awesome and very detailed but the story moves slow and a few times he even insults the readers intelligence. I know it was writen in 1999 but I know what a Hovercraft is Clive and I kn Leggi tutto
