I liked it a lot, will read more by Cussler. ( )

"Treasure" has everything you could want from a Dirk Pitt novel, the mix or locations, action, and a wonderful last scene, there's just so much plot! I've seen people describe these books as shallow and unrealistic, but if you want realism, look out of the window, not in a Clive Cussler book. Fantastic adventure, keep them coming. ( )

DNF and did not like.

Couldn't get into the characters or the story, so DNF around 25%. I found the characters flat and stereotypical, and the story slow and boring. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671704656, Mass Market Paperback)

Charts of lost gold...breathtaking art and rare volumes...maps of hidden oil and mineral deposits that could change the world's balance of power. Now DIRK PITT discovers the secret trail of the treasures of Alexandria -- a trail that plunges him into a brutal conspiracy for total domination of the globe. Zealots threaten to unseat the governments of Egypt and Mexico, exposing America to invasion and economic collapse. Suddenly, from East to West, anarchists reach their deadly tentacles into the heart of the United States. And DIRK PITT, the hard-hitting hero of Clive Cussler's smash bestsellers Sahara and Inca Gold, is up against the most feared assassin known to man. An international band of terrorists is making its play for world power on the high seas -- and Pitt is the only man alive who can stop them!
