Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 12th hair-raising Dirk Pitt thriller, which sees the adventurer hunt for a fabulous hoard of Inca gold before the richest prize known to man is lost forever. 

A call for help from a stricken archaeological expedition brings Dirk Pitt to a sacred well high in the Andes. There he confronts a band of ruthless art thieves who plunder ancient sites for their precious artefacts. 

But soon Dirk Pitt faces even graver danger, as he searches for a lost Spanish galleon and hunts for a fabulous hoard of Inca gold. And in a desperate race against time, Pitt must track down a sacred site - before the richest prize known to man is lost to the world forever....

Let down in the sound editing

There is a glaring difference in sound levels throughout the performance. Mostly it sounds normal - then in the middle of sentences the narrator is suddenly right behind you talking directly into your ear.

Great Story Annoying recording

The story is great but the audio is incredibly annoying! One moment it’s is normal then without warning it sounds like the narrator is yelling in your ear from a tin can! Sadly this happens frequently throughout the story.
It should be re-recorded
Very disappointed

Audio Levels Vary Widely.

Often between Paragraphs. Sometimes within Sentences. Story wise you know what you're getting. Narrator always good. just the sound levels let it down, jolting the listener out of the experience.

Great story but...

This is a great story but the recording is not the typical quality. The sound is the most noticeable when a part that was recorded at a different time is brought in. Sound is lower or clarity is different. I have never experienced this with a book of this caliber.

Great book, BAD audio quality

Another great Clive Cussler book... but the audio quality is horrible. it sounds like there's different readers, the volumes change, and some of the metrics are for the European market and Summer for the US market. it should be easy to fix this mess so it doesn't detract from the great story

Another winner! Cussler has outdone himself again.

Another wonderful Dirk Pitt Adventure. I don't know how Clive Cussler can be so creative and come up with such wonderful stories, but I'm grateful he does.

A great adventure

This is the second Clive Cussler novel I ever read. it is a great adventure that will keep you captivated. I have listened to Inca Gold two time and have read it three time. Scott Brick dose a masterful job of telling the story. I recommend it to anyone wanting a good story were good wins in the end.

Awful editing

As all of Mr. Cussler’s books, this is a terrific story. It is however, one of the worst listens I’ve had since joining Audible! Scott Brick is a great narrator and it’s a crime that his performance was so grievously miss-edited. The dubbing was pathetic. The sound mixing was nonexistent and rereads were left in. Whoever got paid to edit this edition should give every penny back! I have always loved Mr. Cussler’s writing and Mr. Brick’s narration, but it was extremely difficult to finish this one!

Adventure and Golden memories of danger!

It was a good Dirk Pitt adventure, but not one of Mr. Cuddlers best efforts. More fancy Inca names and history then usual.

Bad editing

As usual the story was good, and the narrator was as usual good,but for some reason it seemed like bits were edited in, because his voice would go from the normal pitch and volume, to a lower pitch and louder, just like that particular bit had been recorded at a different time and on different equipment and added in, which I found very annoying and off putting, because it didn’t fit in with with how he was reading it. To be honest it totally ruined it for me.

Of it's time, so don't buy unless you can cope

You have to except that when these were written it was a sexist, jingoistic world of stereotypes.

The story rolls along with the bravo we love. Good guys triumph, all be it with some struggle. Adventure in a tin

Sound quality is not consistent

Scott Brick does his usual solid delivery but whoever was in charge of recording did him and the book no favours.
The narration has been patched, badly. The levels are all over the place and stand out like a sore thumb. Really detracts from the listening pleasure.
All the other books prior to this in the Dirk Pitt series seem fine.

Shame about the Editing.

A good story, totally immersing.
Although the poor editing of the audio and adding verbal text as if other narrative was wrong, made for an irritating listen. As to the thought that anyone actually cares if it’s meters or feet. Just Choose one snd stick with it.
We don’t care.

Strange narration

Somtimes a different voice narrates parts, it's very perturbing and doesn't match the rest told.
