Book - 2008
Rate this:
A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming . . . a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Columbia . . . a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war . . . NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission, captain and crew perished to a man--and if Pitt and his colleague Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them.

Sept 7, 2014....just starting this book.....I picked it up from the discard pile at the library, to give to my brother-in-law, but he had already read it, and recommended that I do so as well. I haven't read a Clive Cussler book before, but I found from reading the cover, that although it is fiction, much of the story could be based on fact, so this makes it interesting to me......Sept 10, 2014, I am finding this a very easy read, something that is a bit refreshing at the moment, it bounces around, which can be frustrating, but it's just the beginning (I'm on page 110 or so) and I must say that keeps it from being boring, which I can't say for other authors! (I am surprised at how much Canadian content is in this book.....I must say I have never experienced that from authors that were not Canadian before.).....oh, the book starts out with a little story about the Franklin expedition abandoning their ships.....and then what do I hear on the news a day later?.....they have found one of the ships from the Franklin expedition under the water!.....a funny coincidence?......Sept 18, well I am still enjoying this, but finding it just a little far fetched. Perhaps I have been reading too many non-fictions lately and it has soured me for fiction?....Am I starting to be like my hubby, who refuses to read (well listen really.....he is into audio books) any fiction whatsoever? (I have to read the new Diana Gabaldon book, then I will know whether I am soured on fiction or not!).....finished it Sept 22. All in all not a bad book, but...Dirk Pitt is just a little bit too much of a superhero for me.
