"not one of his best"
It was ok but not one of his best.
Good characters as always, I just didnt get as emersed in the story as I usually do.
Listened to this whilst on holiday as watching the kids around the pol and reading a Cussler book isn't really an option! Scott Brick delivered another superb performance backed up with Cussler's awesome ability to spin a superb yarn based on current (sic) Middle Eastern sentiment. I thorough enjoyed it especially the attention to detail. And nine of the kids drowned! Not mine anyway.
Exciting and interesting story that was really brought to life by an excellent narrator - can't wait to hear more
"Clive Cussler does it again"
loved it. A good action adventure to get lost in. I would recommend this audio book to all.
I just love the tone of the narrator, he is able to take you on the journey. Capturing every moment
"Kurt Austin and Egypt"
As I get older I treat these like boys own stories , macho heroes and an impossibly survived storyline.
Great way to pass away hours while recovering from illness.
