Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun reading! This was a fun read and I enjoyed the historic aspects of the early 1900s. Very much a similar character to Dirk Pitt, James, Bond and Indiana Jones. Fast action, narrow escapes and diabolical villians.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boire This book was fabulous! I loved the historical nature. It was fast paced and left you guessing. A real treat to read. I enjoyed it and so did my mother who is a little over 30 years younger than myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boire A new series and, in my opinion, the best yet from Clive Cussler. This is not just a story based on an historical event, but is set in a bygone era.
