I have to say it was with trepidation that I started to read Cussler's new Dirk Pitt novel, having not been a fan of his most recent work, espescially the seemingly endless lines of story that were being pushed out the door with more and more co-writers in tow. However, Crescent Dawn is a suprising return to form for Cussler and the writing is superb. Cussler has really done well here to bring the Dirk Pitt series up to date and the plot (although always far fetched as expected of Cussler - and all the better for it!) deals with the concerns of today's world. I was pleased that Cussler decided to ditch what seemed like an endless number of Chinese/Communist mad hatters with world domination plans and turned his attention to terrorism, Israel, Hesbola, Islam. He also unveils the murkey world of antiquity forgery, smuggling and robbery.

He sets all this real time stuff against an action packed plot, with car chases, shoot outs, fights, lucky escapes, plenty of dives and boats and all the fun of the Sea.

Dirk Pitt Jnr and Summer are not nearly as annoying as they have been in previous stories. I was also impressed with the research that went into this novel. Living in London I know the places he describes when adventures take a turn to England in the book. The details he got right were quite excellent.

All in all this is one of the best Pitt's I have read in a long time, pure escapist fiction at it's best. Enjoy.

There was something very exciting about the camaraderie and boys own type adventure of Pitt and Giordino. Underwater sea explorers looking for missing boats and artefacts, coming across more than their fair share of scrapes and run-ins.

But they are relegated these days to the occasional foray, as Cussler seeks to promote Dirk Jr and Summer. Yet they are not given the same pizzaz the other two have, and Cussler seems caught up now with too many characters - Pitt, Giordino, Dirk, Summer, a couple of baddies, a dishonest artefact dealer, an israeli antiquities detective and so on. Only when Pitt and Giordino take centre stage does the book take off.

Interesting also that Cussler has moved from historical adventure to archaeological thriller with this one. You could also try Ben Witherington's Art West adventures, starting with The Lazarus Effect.

What can I say - I became addicted to Clive Cussler with one of his first book and have looked forward to buying his new editions upon publication. There have been a few lame dogs along the way - usually when he collaborated with another author but this one is on top form. It is action packed, with the usual tension that has won Cussler readers worldwide. It travels from AD 237 to present day terrorism and drags us, the reader along with it enjoying every minute of the madness and mayhem through which we travel. Yes a really good Dirk Pitt NUMA team novel. Do not hesitate with this one It really is terrific. Crescent Dawn

In the 1980s and 90s I waited with bated breath for another Dirk Pitt Novel. Although they always fitted a similar format the historical, geographical research and the 'teams relationships' was well done and made the adventure exciting.
Things changed when Dirk jnr and Summer came along, they had the effect of watering it down.
His recent novels, this one included just remind me of the constant flow of US movies following the same old format purely to get bums on seats. Yes I am sorry Mr Cussler I feel you are doing the same. As a writer myself I know how hard it is to 'keep ones name out there' but I am sure I speak for many when I say surely ONE good book is worth 10 mediocre ones!
What topped it for me this time round was the vision of Buckingham palace as seen from Lambeth Palace; just like a US movie when in a car chase or even a taxi ride around London out the window one sees every notable landmark in the space of 2 minutes. There was no excuse because his other location while in the UK around Dover was spot on.
I hope Dirk jnr and Summer get more integrated into the stories in the future. This time round I found their part of the story very disjointed. Both Summer and Dirk Jnr got into serious trouble in the UK and Turkey, Dirk Snr being their boss and father knew nothing about it until there chance meeting in Turkey!!
Lets go back to the quality of the one or two books a year, early adventures in some way. Either that or have a catastrophe and wipe the family out once and for all...

Really looked forward to getting my hands on this book as I'm Dirk Pitt's No.1 fan. However, I was really disappointed by the standard of writing. This isn't Clive Cussler's type of writing but his son's. There was little depth to the book, the chapters jumped all over the place and so did the charactors.It would have been better to have left Dirk and his wife Loren where they were in the last book, getting happily married, then to have them wade through this tired plot. I somehow get the feeling Dirk Cussler is more interested in promoting Dirk Pitt Junior than Senior. In my opinion, give this book a miss.
