Frozen inside a million-ton mass of ice--the charred remains of a long-missing luxury yacht, vanished en route to a secret White House rendezvous. The only clue to the ship's priceless--and missing--cargo: nine ornately carved rings and the horribly burned bodies of its crew. ( )

Highly sexist and homophobic (makes James Bond books look positively feminist) but, like the James Bond books, has to be read in the context if its time. Once you get over that you have an ok thriller. The writing is basic but serviceable and Mr Cussler can certainly tell a fast moving and cliff-hanging story. I've read a lot better but also a lot worse. Final judgement? It was ok. ( )

This book was a fun rump, but Pitt was borderline a Mary Sue. He always seems to be one step ahead of most people and can accomplish the almost physically impossible. While it's a fun 'good guys triumph over bad' story it gets a little extreme, almost Dan Brownish...

Saying all that I had fun listening to it and I plan on listening to more of them. They are great entertainment on long drives, or commuting. Pitt pretends to be gay in this one in order to loll the main villain into underestimating his abilities.

Pitt is sent to help a scientist find a ship that was frozen into an iceberg. The iceberg had been marked with dye, but someone didn't want them to find it to soon, so had actually removed it to 'hide' it back among the other icebergs. After finding it, Pitts life became much more complicated. ( )

Love the behind the scenes look at Disneyland and the Pirates of the Carribean. ( )
