Sorry, [a:Clive Cussler|18411|Clive Cussler|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1225620641p2/18411.jpg], maar dit is een van de slechtste, zo niet het slechtste boek dat ik ooit van je heb gelezen.

Het plot van het boek is goed, daar niet van. Misschien ligt het aan het feit dat Clive nieuwe hoofdrolspelers moest schrijven, (Kurt, Joe, Gamay en Paul), maar het verhaal loopt traag.
Het einde van het boek was niet geweldig, en nog steeds weet ik niet waar het verhaal precies over ging. ( )

An exciting adventure story. ( )

I have read all of Cussler's books thus far and have enjoyed each and every one. At the beginning of this one, I was a bit wary because his usual characters (Pitt, Rudy, and Al) were not the main stars. However, I feel that the new guys (and gal) have proved themselves well. The historical information is great and was woven into an interesting and plausible story. One can believe that people like Halcon do exist and ARE in power. I always enjoy the tight spots the hero gets into and the ingenious ways they escape. ( )

I actually enjoyed most of the book. The bad guy was a bit over-the-top, but then again, so we're the heroes! A fun read when your brain is too tired to concentrate. ( )

Stayed up late to finish this book. While it is not normally in my reading pile, I thought I'd try out Clive Cussler's Numa series. I bought the first book in this series and enjoyed it although I thought it was a little bogged down in parts I do plan on reading more in this series. ( )

So quickly did the pale ship appear, she seemed to spring whole from the depths, gliding like a ghost across the silver pool of luminescence cast by the near full moon.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671026682, Mass Market Paperback)

Clive Cussler, the author of sixteen consecutive New York Times bestsellers, unleashes a hero for the next millennium in an electrifying new series of unrelenting action and edge-of-your-seat thrills.

When Kurt Austin, the leader of a courageous National Underwater & Marine Agency exploration team, rescues beautiful marine archaeologist Nina Kirov off the coast of Morocco, he becomes the next target of Texas industrialist Don Halcon. A madman bent on carving a new nation out of the southwestern United States and Mexico, Halcon's scheme hinges on Nina's recent discovery involving Christopher Columbus, and a priceless pre-Columbian antiquity buried in the battered remains of the sunken Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria. Only Kurt Austin and his crack NUMA team stand between Halcon and the Andrea Doria's silent steel hull -- and if their deadly mission fails, Halcon will ride to power on a wave of death and destruction.
