The first book in the Kurt Austin series Although the expected fun Clive Cussler adventure I had anticipated, this one seemed to be a bit too contrived

The first book in the Kurt Austin series. Basically another Dirk Pitt but he has different physical features. With Pitt and Austin on the case, it's a wonder there are any mysteries left in the world. Although the expected fun Clive Cussler adventure I had anticipated, this one seemed to be a bit too contrived. There was far too much to wrap up at the end of this novel that all seemed to just fall into place perfectly as if the author knew he had 20 pages left to write to finish.

I sort of liked the book, lots of action, the story developed and tied in interesting bits. It was almost too detailed, I had to skim over the technical info (and I'm a fairly technical person) so to not get bogged down in them instead of the story. It was based on some true events, so sometimes I wondered where the fact ended and the fiction began. But it really kept my attention, so overall I liked it. Not sure if I liked it enough to take on another though.

Not Clive's writing. Again. Note "co-written" in fine print. Personally, I don't think he writes any more for whatever reason. I think he develops the plot and the co-writers puts it to words. I've read a lot of Clive's excellent novels, and this sure doesn't seem like his writing. I stopped buying these co-written books of his but this one slipped by me.

Sad to see a great author hang it up.

I have read almost every Clive Cussler book, and, if you like that type of action adventure kind of book, this is something you should read . i am not sure if this is the one I would start with, but there is no real sequence to them other than the technology progression, much like a James Bond book. All of the different series create a group of characters in the NUMA team who you feel you would like to meet sometime, and a series of antagonists who you hope end up defeated in the end; they, reliably, are overpowered in the end with various unique twists and turns to get there. Not exactly Proust or Balzac, but a hell of a lot more fun.

This is another example of Cussler's ability to spin a story in ways you would never dream of. While you are fairly certain of the eventual outcome, the path to the solution of his mysteries is never predictable. Those enjoy a good action packed mystery with more changes in direction than an old country road.

Cussler, as always, mixes history with fantasy, handsome and adventurous men with shapely women. Flippant and devil-may-care dialogue with cookie-cutter villains. I’m embarrassed that I read the book in its entirety! Always fun, always a guilty pleasure.

If you like Clive Cussler's writing you will enjoy this book. Yes, it follows a fairly predictable path in general, as do many books, but it's the details of the story which Cussler and his co-authors do so well that sets him apart from others.

I had read some of the NUMA files before. This book gave me the beginning of all the characters and their personalities. The story was great and I felt like I was there in the middle of it.
Typical Cussler. Interesting plot shows that Author did his homework WRT the archaeology. The idea of pre-Columbian commerce between the Mediterranean and Mexico's Maya coupled with a run-in with antiquities thieves makes for an exciting read. In the end, the story is let down by a pretty run-of-the-mill megalomaniacal villain bent of world domination (again? Didn't Ian Flemming pretty much empty that particular well decades ago?)
