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…

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.
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.
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 !
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
Typical Cussler - impossible physical feats, really bad guys. Great read!!!
Een oké actie verhaal. De auteur doet veel onderzoek voor zijn boeken, maar soms zijn er teveel details en dat komt de leesbaarheid niet altijd ten goede.
This was one of the worst Cussler books I've read. The copy editing was horrendous. The writing was aimed at 3rd graders, with stilted sentences, unbelievable dialogue, and boring prose. The fight scenes, in particular, seemed to be a series of choppy sentences that all started with "The." While I ex Leggi tutto
