Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Celtic Empire, by Clive and Dirk Cussler, read by Scott Brick.

The murder of a team of UN scientists while investigating mysterious deaths in El Salvador. A deadly collision in the waterways off Detroit. An attack from tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the Nile. Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie with the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father 3,000 years ago. 

From the desert sands of Egypt to the rocky isles of Ireland to the deepwater lochs of Scotland, only Dirk Pitt can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.

This would make a great movie

I couldn't get enough of this book, my first Cussler novel, won't be my last. The narration was great, allow, as Scottish preson that has lived in Inverness, I found some of the Scots accents, pronunciations were a little ropey and the author's scale of distance and time not very accurate with regards to travel around Loch Ness. Overall a very exciting listen and I managed it in one sitting, I just didn't want to stop.

Dirk and Dirk save the day

These later books are lighter in detail than the original Pitt adventures. They can also be confusing by having father and son share the same name, the book jumps around a lot between locations and it did not work as well as an audio book.

excellent storyline

Loved it, had me listening on and on. Quite a novel storyline.
I did find the reader's Scottish and Irish accent a little off putting but not enough to stop me finishing the book.

Ok(ish)

Not the best or most plausible story line. Narration so so, there is nothing worse to hear than a rubbish Scottish accent, and this was right up there with the worst of them, akin to Mel Gibson in Braveheart.
