Baghdad, 2003: l’invasione americana apre la strada al saccheggio del museo nazionale, da cui spariscono capolavori di valore inestimabile. Ma qualcuno è interessato soltanto a una statua di bronzo fenicia che non compare nemmeno negli elenchi ufficiali: il Navigatore. Per averla è disposto a tutto, anche a uccidere. E la prima vittima non tarda ad arrivare: un losco trafficante di antichità. Il secondo bersaglio è Carina Mechadi, coraggiosa funzionaria dell’UNESCO, incaricata del recupero dei tesori scomparsi. Grazie al provvidenziale intervento di Kurt Austin e Joe Zavala, Carina si salva e con lei il misterioso Navigatore… Gli uomini della NUMA si troveranno così coinvolti in un’odissea nel tempo e nello spazio che li porterà sulle tracce del tesoro di Salomone…

This story begins in 900 BC, as a Thracian and Phoenician ship collide, with devastating consequences. Many years later, in 1809, Thomas Jefferson has assembled cherished word lists of the Unkechaug people, valuable vellum documents which he entrusts to an old friend - Meriwether Lewis. He has no id Leggi tutto
Can you give anything lower than a one-star rating? I have never read Cussler before but wanted a quick, light summer read. With its one-dimensional, stock characters and forced dialog The Navigator is quite possibly one of the worst books I have read.
Cussler's a Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact theory buff. Or at least, as an American writer, he uses the angle to facilitate the international setting of his novels when global disaster is not the ploy du jour. If Treasure was Dirk PItt's best take, then "the Navigator" is Austen's. The Phoenici Leggi tutto
This is standard fare for Clive Cussler...but that isn't a bad thing. With plenty of action and twists, this one will keep the pages turning.
maybe i've read too many of cussler books lately, but god this book was astoundingly boring the protagonists- what is it about kurt austin and his pale hair that makes him so boring? he collects dueling pistols. wow. how very, very interesting. and what about zavala? a Mexican-American who turns clas Leggi tutto
Another good, fast read by Cussler. Included King Solomon's mine, the Ten Commandments and Thomas Jefferson. Figure that one out.
The Navigator refers to a large life size statue of a sailor. On this statue is a map. This statue used to sit in the basement of the Baghdad musem for many years. Until the US army occupied the country in 2003. Since then, a lot of irreplaceable art has been stolen from the Baghdad museum and sold
I love Clive Cussler books, they're wild, adventurous, a little history mixed with fiction and just fun! I was excited about this one, because I heard it talked about my stomping grounds on the Chesapeake Bay and Havre de Grace. It didn't disappoint. If you are looking for a fun adventure this is th Leggi tutto
Maybe books like this should come with a warning? Matt's review just about sums up how I felt after reading this !
Typical Cussler - impossible physical feats, really bad guys. Great read!!!
