Product Description

Product Description

In the tiny African nation of Eritrea, the American spy satellite Medusa has crashed but not before its sensors revealed an underground kimberlite pipeline, the telltale sign of a huge load of diamonds. The mine turns out to be King Solomon's Lost Mine, but with it is a tale of heartbreak---it was children who worked and died in the mine for 400 years, leading to many local myths of curses. It is also practically on the border with a very unfriendly Sudan. Throw in two warring Israeli factions, a hidden monastery guarding an ancient secret, an evil Italian businessman with his own army, and an incredible amount of derring-do and you have one terrific action novel. In the Medusa Stone by Jack DuBrul readers will find an intricate tale filled with action and intrigue. DuBrul is only thirty years old but he is already being compared to the very best in the spy and thriller genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Medusa Stone casts a spell of suspense 31 Oct 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Definitely his best books since Vulcan's Forge, Medusa Stone takes place in the African Nation of Irtrea( I hope I spelled that right), where Philip Mercer is on a Geological expedition to find a rare ore that can produce energy. Obviously not everyone wants him to find it, and that is where the conflict, and action in the story develops.
Medusa Stone moves at a good clip, and you are never bored, but...the only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the characters don't have any personality, particularly Mr. Mercer, who is a cardboard copy of Dirk Pitt, without the sense of humor.
I wish Mr. Du Brul would spend more time developing his character. The only thing you do know about him, is his soft spot for an old drunk named White, that his parents are both dead, and that he traveled a lot as a kid. He puts nothing in the story to make Mr. Mercer a likable character, and that is the main flaw in all his books. If he is going to continue this series, I'd HIGHLY recommend that he make his hero someone we can identify, and sympathize with, and not some cardboard, no-personality action figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would make a great movie. 12 Mar 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. Although the real action took a little while to get going it was still enticing enough right from the start to get those pages turning. Its easy to read, describes places and people well enough to feel you know and see them and the plot is plausible too (well, in an adventure book sort of way) with no glaring loopholes. All in all a fab read to pass the time. The ideal book for a train or plane ride. I'd definitely recommend it and intend to read others by the same author.
