- Author Clive Cussler
Dirk Pitt is a NUMA director and always manages to get involved in some big adventure or another. This time a group of next generation Nazis are planning to turn the world upside down (almost literally) to be rid of all but their chosen. They’ve even got the boats ready, Noah style. Can Dirk save the world before it’s too late?
Dirk Pitt is loveable, if a little too able to escape death James Bond style. But he’s joined by his good friend Giordino who finds love in this novel. There are plenty of bad guys to boo at as well.
I find that he tends to put in details that are unnessesary, just because he knows them, like boat engine sizes and things, not essential to the plot.
I really enjoyed this book, although it seemed to go on a little bit after the disaster had been averted, and by then you’re too relieved to concentrate.
