Publisher Description

Clive Cussler, "The Grand Master of Adventure," sends his intrepid heroes Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino on their wildest, boldest mission into the ancient world, unlocking extraordinary secrets and solving hideous crimes. Another fabulous read from the most beloved series from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador. . . A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit. . . An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile. . . Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father three thousand years ago.

During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and which will threaten everyone and everything he knows--most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.

Another Engaging Adventure from Mr. Cussler

If you are a Clive Cussler and Dirk Pit fan you’ll enjoy this adventure. I spend a lot of time on airplanes and since working in “cattle class” is impossible good reads like this one are indispensable for easing the otherwise unpleasant experience that is air travel.

Really enjoyed it

I took a long hiatus from Dirk Pitt novels because the stories became repetitive, though, I did enjoy them. Decided to give it another try with this one and had a lot of fun reading it. I’ll get back into them again.

Not Clive Culler

I’ve read all the original Cussler books and this clearly is not one of them. The dialogues do not match and they are not smooth. The mixing of the two Pitts is annoying. The behavior of the characters not developed in a refined way. The core storyline is similar though. Avoid this one.
