Boooooooring.....worst Dirk Pitt book I've read. I should have put this down and read something else, but I stubbornly pushed through this. Bland story, bland characters, and bland writing. It's apparent that Dirk Cussler does the writing now with Clive reaping the royalties. Pity. ( )

SUMMARY: 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 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.

There are lof things going on in "Crescent Dawn", the 21st Dirk Pitt novel from (now) Team Cussler. In this novel, daddy Dirk, son Dirk, and daughter Summer, are each involved in adventures wrapped around a submerged Roman vessel, stolen Muslim religious artifacts, and the possibility of the discovery of a document written by Jesus.

The book is laced with plenty of action on the three fronts and the Cusslers do a nice job weaving the three plots into one as the book moves along. Inveterate Cussler fans will find all of the Pitt regulars reunited - including Al, Rudy, Loren, Vice President Sandecker, and St. Julian Perlmutter. And, don't forget the cameos by Clive Cussler and a legendary antique car (this time it's a lime light green 1948 Delahaye).

Some may say that the Pitt franchise has lost a little luster over the years, but for this reviewer, there's still plenty to enjoy in the series. Weighing in at over 600 pages, "Crescent Dawn" is a hefty reading investment, but for fans of the Pitt series, it will be worth the commitment. ( )

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.
