A thoroughly enjoyable rip-roaring read.I have read a number of Cussler novels,some better than others,I had some concerns regarding Cussler co-writing with other authors, but his collaboration with Jack Du Bruhl works very well.
Four brothers embark on an adventure to Pine Island in search of Pirate treasure buried in a deep shaft,little knowing of the tragedy about to unfold. A scientist at a research station in the freezing Antartic is driven to madness. Juan Cabrillo and his team from the "Oregon",search the South American Jungle for a missing satellite,make an interesting find, get involved with a Psychopathic Argentinian and his Special Forces team.An ancient Chinese seagoing expedition.Argentinian and Chinese cooperation also feature. Lots of action, death and destruction. Three stories intrinsically linked which keeps the reader engrossed all the way through. If you enjoy Adventure,escapism and a good read,I can recommend this book.
