    As an avid Cussler reader for many years I am constantly checking the shelves for a new title. One a year just isn't enough once your hooked. But I must say the new series do not meet the standards of the Dirk Pitt and crew. I find the characters shallow and not as seasoned as Dirk was. There is good build up as far as characters is concerned but too many flukey type escapes. Also the end comes too quick after reading through so much detail. I hope that Mr. Austin will become a little more like Dirk whereas right now he is too much of a fly by the seat of the pants character. All in all a good read but not as exciting as past writings of Clive's.

    BLUE GOLD lost at sea

    I've read all of the Cussler novels and am an ardent fan. However, this co-authored novel does not meet Cussler's elegant standards for highly detailed and mind-boggling excitement. When you have become 'Cusslerized' over the years, the flimsy action episodes in Blue Gold seem to fall flat. This novel definitely needed more Cussler input.
