Valhalla Rising by Clive Cussler Cussler Is A Gentleman. Dirk Pitt, Clive Cusslers aging but still potent superhero, returns in the 16th adventure in this popular series about the director of special projects for the National Underwater Maritime Administration (NUMA). Pitts NUMA survey ship happens to be in the vicinity when the worlds newest and biggest cruise ship founders and sinks, giving Pitt the chance to stage the daring rescue of nearly 2,000 passengers. Among those who perish is a famous scientist whose revolutionary engines powered the ship to her watery grave; while Pitt is unable to save Dr. Egan, he rescues his beautiful daughter Kelly from the sea, and later from a murder attempt aboard the rescue vessel. Pitt and his trusty pal Al Giordino track the sinking to the boardroom door of a multinational conglomerate called Cerberus, whose evil CEO has designs on the worlds oil supply. Hell do anything to keep Egans advanced engines and secret formula for frictionless oil off the market--even sabotage another vessel, this time a luxury passenger submarine. By the time our heroes have foiled the masterminds nefarious plots, theyve also uncovered the existence of a working submarine nearly a century before one actually existed--irrefutable proof of a Viking landing on the Hudson River--and the remains of the British sailor who inspired Jules Vernes Captain Nemo. A solid page-turner that even features a cameo appearance by the author himself, Valhalla Rising snaps, crackles, and pops with Cusslers usual brio. --Jane Adams Personal Review: Valhalla Rising by Clive Cussler I have read every Clive Cussler book. (I feel we're on a first-name basis!) Whether he's written it alone or with another author, they are always entertaining and of the can't-put-down-til-I-find-out-what-happens variety. My biggest praise is that he writes as someone from today, with a heart for the bygone era. He doesn't need to use blatant sex and vulgar swearing to get his message across. Just like the good, old movies, some things should be left to the imagination ... and Cussler does just that ... tastefully. With so much trash being published today, I'd love to meet him and shake his hand in thanks! eBay is the ULTIMATE shoppers paradise.
