    2. Clive Cussler has always written fast paced, interesting thrillers, and he is one of a handful of authors in the action adventure genre who I really never tire of reading Somehow, he manages to keep his novels fresh even as he uses the same formula time and again a historical incident involving bad guys as a prologue, then a flash forward to the present where somehow, the historical incident becomes ensnared with present day bad guys and the National Underwater Marine Agency, or NUMA characters [...]

    3. I have nothing bad to say about this thriller It is my first book by Clive Cussler and it is fabulous with interesting and kind of original plot, charming heroes, very, very bad villains, interesting popular science and lots and lots of action It reminds me very much of the Sigma Force series by James Rollins I don t know who started first, but now I get why Cussler is so respected among fans of thrillers and adventures Five stars.

    4. A solid but not outstanding input into the NUMA Files series as created by Clive Cussler I find these books to be a lot of fun, but this is not the best Onto the next in the series

    5. We start in the Azores with Hudson Wallace great name and his Lockheed Constellation and the adventure quickly goes into high gear Then starts the story of the Kinjara Maru and where we first see our main character Kurt Austin about to embark on a journey, he thought, to join his friend Joe Zavala for a submersible race in their prototype Barracuda and some much needed RR Of course if they actually GOT their RR we wouldn t have a story, would we We travel all over the world in some very interest [...]

    6. This is a book about magnets, and all the power therein Hardly do principles of superconducting, particle acceleration and inexplicably powerful compounds make for compelling reading But add some stock paper thin characters and a mildly interesting, albeit totally impossible, storyline and there s enough inertia to drag dear reader to the finish Mercifully That s Devil s Gate a totally linear, non texturized progression through 474 pages of pseudo scientific, vanilla coated meh The novel itself [...]

    7. This is another Kurt Austin adventure from the NUMA Files, and it s not bad As a matter of fact, it is pretty darn good, considering that, as with all of Cussler s novels, it features an extraordinarily unlikely situation with wholly unbelievable action, based on science that just won t happen But that has been true of all of Cussler s books, or books with which he is involved in these end of life pairings, and we still get the books and read them, because they re great fun to read I really don [...]

    9. Clive Cussler always entertains I look forward to his books and this certainly did not disappoint me Kurt Austin is such a hero James Bond and Indiana Jones in one person I enjoy that there is always a spark of romance, but it is a byproduct of the story and not the story itself The Trouts are just enjoyable as are his other couples in other books Their banter in the sub was hysterical The characters are very likeable I found myself smiling several times at the repartee There were also enough na [...]

    10. A favorite sweatshirt a grilled cheese sandwich the smell of warm towels fresh out of the dryer any Cussler story from the Numa Files Predictable and comforting are not necessarily equated to bad There has never been a Cussler book that doesn t have the ruggedly handsome hero, his ingenious sidekick of complementary ethnically diverse heritage, a textbook villain of the highest caliber of sinister, and the obligatory hottie who is immune to the charms of our hero But that s okay As long as the p [...]

    11. OK, like my friend Louise says, you always know what you are getting with a Clive Cussler book I started reading about Dirk Pitt many years ago on a recommendation from Brent Erickson I have been a fan every since and look forward to each and every book in any of the series Like I started out you always know what you are going to get a hero and a villian The bad guy is out to destroy or control the world and the hero of course, saves it Whether it is Dirk Pitt or Kurt Austin, Joe Zavalo, or Joe [...]

    15. a solid 3 starsA good solid action thriller that will satisfy any fan of the genre Clive Cussler can tell a story and put together a sentence better than most C mon who didn t like Sahara AND the movie with Matthew McConaughey This guy can tell a story and likely end up on a best seller list But lately, wellI ll get into that later While he uses the same ol formula for many of his novels Flashback to event with Bad Guy Flashforward to those events becoming relevant today NUMA and or NUMA employe [...]

    16. The book was fine, generally It s the usual shipwreck mega scientific discovery new science concept Dirk Pitt and Kurt Austin along with Joe Zavala saving the day I mean, since when did Dirk Pitt not save the day The magic wears off after some time and it s hard not to doubt the NUMA folk s bravery Being able to stand out every single time in face of death threats and losing your own life Definitely, there are such people But the high frequency of such behaviour makes me wonder if they have suff [...]

    18. A ship sinks due to pirates and Kurt interviews But this was no ordinary pirates since they sink the whole ship in such a short period Normally they take the goods and run, but instead these methodically sink the ship as fast a possible Then Kurt and Joe are in the middle of a underwater race when some sort of disturbance threatens to crash them into a large tower of rock, making a new discovery in the process Yet, someone is watching Kurt s every move waiting for the right moment to strike Some [...]

    19. Ninth in the NUMA Files suspense series revolving around Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala.Be sure to read the Prologue.My TakeOkay, this was not one of my favorites Normally, I can t read fast enough This one I actually put down every once in awhile as my mind wandered There s action in here, but it s a bit toned down, not like the usual Still, there s plenty of fun gadgets, great escapes, and the usual romance spiced with danger.Too funny, even Captain Haynes has his own laugh at Joe and Kurt, pointi [...]

    20. Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala rise to their zenith when a weapon of almost mythical power is about to be unleashed upon the United States and other major nations Oh, they don t do it alone, it takes a team of unlikely and sometimes unwilling suspects to undo the audacious plan plotted and executed by pure evil Cussler again writes a page turner at every depth, and each chapter is better than the last His characters are real and evoke your emotions as you read of their struggles to achieve their mis [...]

    21. 3.6 stars This is my first book by Cussler.I wish I d started with an older one as I feel and heard that he isn t trying as hard, is running out of ideas and using ghost writers etc Nevertheless this was a fun and fast paced read Many many cheesy moments, super pro USA, trying to be political without I imagine doing a ton of research But that s not why one reads Clive Cussler I guess
