Groenlandia, cinquantamila anni fa: un meteorite radioattivo colpisce la Terra. I primi uomini a ritrovarlo sono i vichinghi di Erik il Rosso, intorno al Mille dopo Cristo, stregati dalla sfera dalla superficie fredda e levigata, i cui effetti letali non tardano a manifestarsi… Sepolto in una caverna fino ai giorni nostri, viene riportato alla luce, insieme al suo impalpabile veleno, da un archeologo. Una tale scoperta può trasformarsi nell’occasione attesa da una cellula terroristica per costruire una «bomba sporca», o da un folle miliardario che persegue un perverso disegno di vendetta. Il gruppo di ex appartenenti alle forze speciali guidato dal capitano Juan Cabrillo è la risposta migliore a una simile minaccia.

Disappointment Of all the Cussler books I've read, this is a major disappointment. There are way too many characters. The plot line...actually there were two plot lines...was so boring that the book was overflowing with "filler text". i.e., pages upon pages of dreary scene descriptions. etc. I make a Leggi tutto
Multiple characters, two plot lines, action packed, page turner. I think I enjoyed it a lot more since I haven’t read one of his books in quite some time. One of the things I did not like about this book was the way he kept mentioning things that would happen in the future at the end of the chapter. Leggi tutto
I enjoyed it, but there was alot going going on and it got a bit confusing
This book gives us Cussler’s usual action-packed, page-turner. Even at over 400 pages it’s a quick, easy read. The usual Corporation Team characters make their appearances in this convoluted plot involving an age-old meteor, hidden in a cave in Greenland, and the other sacred stone, the Kaaba in Mec Leggi tutto
Good stuff. I might not enjoy the Oregon series as much as the Isaac Bell stuff.
The action was fast as promised. However, it distracted from the development of the main characters-- especially those in the corporation. The plot was sloppy toward the end and I did no longer believe that it made sense. There was so many characters that it was hard to keep track of everyone. It di Leggi tutto
"- Head and shoulders - said King by radio. - Shampoo? - asked Adams. - No - King replied - I'm gonna shoot this bastard there. In the head and shoulders." Good part but here's too little of Cabrillo, who's I personally love. Big pluses for Elton John concert and his lines, and Hotel California by The Leggi tutto
I read two Oregon Files by Cussler and Jack du Brul before and they were awesome. This one cowritten by Craig Dirgo unlike the rest of the series except Golden Buddha. And you see the difference obviously between two co-writers. Jack Du Brul does a much better job. Still a Cussler book. Joyful, thri Leggi tutto
