"Clive Cussler, "The Grand Master of Adventure," sends his intrepid heroes Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino on their wildest, boldest mission into the ancient world, unlocking extraordinary secrets and solving hideous crimes. Another fabulous read from the most beloved series from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author. The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador. A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit. An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile. Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father three thousand years ago. During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and which will threaten everyone and everything he knows--most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind"--… (more)

Cusler does it again. Throw in a plague, mummies, a desire for women to hate men and locations like El Salvador, Detroit, Egypt and Scotland. It starts with an ancient story and moves right into the present. Pitt's children Dirk and Summer are hunting an Egyptian princess while Pitt and Dirk save a An American aid worker after a dam breaks. Then Pitt and Al head to Detroit because of an oil tanker that was sunk. They are eventually end up in Scotland for the same reason. ( )

action-adventure, sly-humor, Egypt, Ireland, Scotland, diabolical-villain *****

I always come to a Cussler book for the history and sly humor but stay for the action/adventure! The entwining plots revolving around each Dirk come together with a bang, and the journey was sooooo worth it. The publisher's blurb is adequate for a teaser, so the only spoiler I'll give is that the dachshund is important.
I'm glad that Scott Brick continues to narrate the Cussler books. ( )

Celtic Empire (2019) by Clive and Dirk Cussler. This is yet another typical Dirk Pitt adventure, that is to say, fast paced, exciting adventures, daring rescues, fantastic perils, saving the human race, etc., etc. In short, this is much like any other Dirk Pitt/NUMA story of the past twenty years.
I couldn’t put it down.
An evil biochemical development company is using saving the world’s water supplies as an undercover method of introducing a world changing chemical mixture into the Earth’s major cities water resources. Leaping from continent to continent and touching on locations such as Detroit, Egypt, Loch Ness and the Upper Nile tombs of the Pharoahs, Celtic Empire shows us once again that the Mister Cusslers have not lost a step in the thriller business.
While this may not be the best of the Cussler novels, it is going to make many readers get more sun than they wanted while shooting through these pages. Bring lost of sun block with you if you plan on reading this at the beach or pool side. ( )
