The Seventh Dirk Pitt adventure is another action packed gripping yarn, with multiple convoluted storylines it's easy to get slightly confused with the many characters and action set pieces. Dirk and the team at NUMA are investigating a deadly toxic spill in the Pacific Ocean, whilst trying to stop t Leggi tutto

Another of the older Dirk Pitt novels that I'm reading in order, despite the fact that they are out of print and difficult to find. All the usual traits of a Cussler book here, suspense, action, and diabolical villain's. But, akin with some of the other older books, this one has a plot that stretches Leggi tutto

Deep Six by Clive Cussler Genres; Action/Adventure, Crime, Mystery, Suspense 4 Stars Published March 22nd 1984 by Hamish Hamilton This was one of the books in my previous mentioned 'Gold Mine' at a yard sell purchases. I will not freak Mr. Cussler out on what I paid for this gem. However, I often wonder Leggi tutto
I cannot say that I disliked the book, but I'm not sure that I need to read another Cussler story. He's a good writer, in that action and adventure sort of way, where leading men are strong, moral and all of the women love them. His stories are well plotted, lots happens, not necessarily by the way
