dirk cussler brings a little darker plot mechanism to the dirk pitt stories, and seems to inject emotion into the storyline. ( )

There are the typical bad guys, a brother and sister, who want to reverse history and are going to extreme measures to collect all of the antiquities necessary to restore a previous culture. They bring acts of terrorism to play in trying to get one particular political figure elected whom they feel will help achieve their goals. To do this they will even attack their own people to try and sway public opinion. Dirk and his team are kept to put together the pieces of the puzzle and once again save the world.

So it seems like we have some of the same scenarios as in the past, but don't we all love to have our indestructible hero who always saves the day? If you love a good Dirk Pitt adventure you are going to love this book. ( )

Another rip roaring page turner from the pen of Clive Cussler. Sometimes the plots are far fetched and the characters bordering on super human with the skills they possess! However, with over the top plots, a story needs characters to match. At the risk of sounding prudish I also like the fact that Clive can write a 500 page book with little, or no, inappropriate language. I look forward to reading Devil's Gate. ( )

Dirk Pitt returns, in the extraordinary new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author. In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman... ( )

To Teri and Dayna,
who make it all fun.
First words
THE DRUMBEAT ECHOED OFF THE WOODEN BULKHEADS, reverberating in a rythmic staccato of flawless precision. The celeusta rapped methodically at his goatskin drum in a smooth yet mechanical fashion.

Book description
In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman artifacts discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the Ottoman Empire, and to the existence of a mysterious "manifest," lost long ago, which if discovered again...just may change the history of the world as we know it.
