Overview

Dirk Pitt returns, in the extraordinary new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman artifacts discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the Ottoman Empire, and to the existence of a mysterious "manifest," lost long ago, which if discovered again...just may change the history of the world as we know it.

I would love to buy these novels for my Nook, but not when I can get the paperback for around $5.00. Thought that was kinda the point for digitizing books. Cuts down on production cost. Work on that will ya!

Excellent story. Clive Cussler and Edgar Rice Burroughs have a lot of parallels. Found writing later in life after previous occupations didn't satisy them. Good vs Evil. Good wins out. You don't always get the girl with Cussler, like you do with Burroughs, but still an outstanding read. Entertainment wins out!

This book certainly brings out the research that went into producing it in the first place. So much of the Middle East history and the characters that might have been. Reading it opened my eyes to the Muslim world and Christianity as well. Well done, overall. I thought the idea of discovering the manifest cargo onboard a Roman vessel certainly had a lot of merit. It is really too bad that all this was only fiction. I was a bit puzzled by the title, but I'm sure the authors could explain. Another well thought through novel by the Cussler's for sure.

I started with the early books by Clive Cussler and thought they were the greatest. But, for some reason, Clive did not write for several years. When the dry spell ended, I was shocked by the change in writing style. Clive decided to reduce and degrade the Dirk Pit series by selling the "Clive Cussler" name and the "Dirk Pitt" name for nothing more than $$$ to other authors. Clive... you ARE Dirk Pitt, no other author can be Dirk Pitt because he comes from you. I can't figure out if Clive Cussler is unable or just plain unwilling to write the Dirk Pitt series himself. The "Crescent Dawn" book has Dirk Pitt embracing Islam as if he is also a true beliver in Islam. Here is Dirk Pitt, a true American hero from bygone books, embracing a belief system that has a burning hatred for America and Americans. It is beyond me to understand why Clive has let this happen. Guys... just write great books and quit trying to make a political statement!!! I have seen some good reviews of this book. If you had read the early books, penned by Clive himself, you would understand why I don't like this book. As a loyal fan from the early years, I feel betrayed and insulted that Clive has sold his name and Dirk to other authors.

Darth Vader is a hater. Crescent Dawn is the most carefully crafted book since 1984. I'm talking about the book not the year. I feel like Dirk is the brother I never had. Clive spoiled us with this one. #dat

I became a fan of Dirk Pitt and Clive Cussler through seeing a movie and then reading the book . . . and got hooked on the series. One of the things that has always stood out to me is how Mr. Cussler is able to mix fiction with just the right amount of fact and a little ‘over the top’ and still have you think. . .’okay maybe . . .’ I admire him for that. However having just completed reading “Crescent Dawn’ it saddens me to admit that I was disappointed. While the base elements of a Dirk Pitt adventure where still there and very visible to the reader the last part of the book seemed to make the proverbial left turn into ‘never never land’ and in doing so became so unbelievable that it ruined the book for me. As a fan of the character I would recommend the read, but if you are looking for your first Dirk Pitt adventure- I’d suggest to looking at one of the older books. In my opinion it is not the best in the series.

I have been a huge Clive Cussler fan for the past few years. Anticipating the next book. This book was a big disappointment. Though I finished the book, it was a struggle to complete.

There has never been an author upon whom you could so consistently rely as Clive Cussler. His books are hard to put down. Unfortunately, with Crescent Dawn, it was easy to put down and hard to pick up again. The locations could not be less interesting, or at least they are made dreadfully dull in this book. The place names are so esoteric and obscure as to solicit a heart-felt "Who cares?". The reading is as dry and tedious as the dig sites described. If you can make your tortuous way through the first 250 pages, you might catch a glimmer of adventure, only to be disappointed that the glimmer fizzles much more quickly than it arrived. We are forced to slog through more than 500 pages of deadly prose and stilted dialogue. It feels odd saying 'skip this one' to a Clive Cussler book, but trust me; you will do your self a favor by taking a pass on this one.
