fun light reading
Everything you expect from a Clive Cussler novel. Ancient treasure, some more or less historical event with hidden effects into the present, maritime high-tech (not so much of that this time), a beautiful and smart woman for the hero, a really evil villain with some new or ancient technology to rule the world and a last minute escape. Actually, if you have read one Cussler, you have a good idea what will happen in all of them. However, he still writes them so fast-paced and full of interesting twists and turns, there is much to say about reading all of them.
