Als ik een halve ster kon geven, zou dit anderhalve ster hebben gekregen, omdat ik nog twijfel of een deel misschien lag aan de voorlezer.

Sorry, Clive, maar dit boek was zonde van mijn tijd. Misschien heb ik de laatste tijd te veel Cussler's gelezen (of eigenlijk geluisterd), maar andere delen uit de NUMA serie of uit Dossier Oregon waren veel beter.
De hoofdrol-spelers lijken (haast) geen fouten te hebben. En de tegenspelers? Een megalomane maniak die de mijnen van Salomo in Amerika zoekt, en toch tijd heeft voor zijn hobby, het steekspel. En dan is daar de moordenaar met zijn baby-gezicht. GAAP!!

En dan het (top geheime) vliegtuig dat eventjes van de Amerikaanse overheid wordt geleend om Kurt zo van Amerika naar Cyprus te vliegen om zijn vriendin te redden.

Ik ben doorgegaan met dit (audio)boek omdat ik niet graag opgeef en de hoop had dat het misschien nog wel beter zou worden, maar helaas. Wat is er gebeurt met Dirk Pitt bij de NUMA? Dat waren tenminste betere verhalen. Mis nog steeds de clue rond de beelden van de 'Navigator'. En wat is er gebeurt met de kunst-collectie die uit het Iraakse museum waren gestolen? ( )

There was not a single dull moment - from lassoing ice bergs to revealing the true secrets of the Artichoke Society - this book was a real treat. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to do some light reading and get a break from reality. ( )

For six books, Cussler has chronicled the adventures of Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA special Assignments Team, in "spine-tingling" stories. His new tale, however, is the most audaciously imaginative of all. ( )

Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second very nearly is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.

What's so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top secret scientific project that could change the world forever.

And that's before the surprises really begin . . .

Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler's hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive's best yet.
