We start in the Azores with Hudson Wallace (great name!) and his Lockheed Constellation and the adventure quickly goes into high gear. Then starts the story of the Kinjara Maru and where we first see our main character Kurt Austin about to embark on a journey, he thought, to join his friend Joe Zavala for a submersible race in their prototype Barracuda and some much needed R&R. Of course if they actually GOT their R&R we wouldn't have a story, would we? We travel all over the world in some very interesting manners (what could be more terrifying or cool than the Lunatic Express?). We also get a story that includes the realism of life and death situations that don't always turn out quite the way you expected them to causing injury and emotional turmoil, even the good guy gets hurt sometimes. We go through explosions, near drownings, being shot at, a hair raising car chase, sinking ships, boa constrictors, underwater landslides, an ultralight escape...good lord, it's exciting even reading about all the excitement in this book! The NUMA gang is all here, Kurt, Joe, Paul & Gamay Trout, we even get some serious input from our beloved Dirk Pitt and Admiral (now Vice President) Sandecker. This book was a great adventure from beginning to end and I loved it! I can really say that I didn't feel like I was reading a Dirk Pitt adventure with a younger, silver haired Dirk but I could actually see the differences (and similarities) between the two characters, they are similar enough that they can easily understand where the other is coming from but they are two very different men! My favorite quote in the book is actually made by Dirk Pitt to Kurt and Joe: "As I've gotten older I've learned a few things," he said. "One of them is: you get what you pay for. You and Joe are like one of my cars. Expensive, bad for the environment, and often a pain in the backside. But you're worth every penny." Devil's Gate is a great read from start to finish and I loved the book. Graham Brown is an excellent choice to continue this series with Mr. Cussler and I do believe this is the best Kurt Austin adventure yet. I can't wait to read the next one!

All hands on deck! Kurt and Joe; Paul and Gammy; and even Dirk and Hiram back at the office unravel seemingly unrelated events that all point to the same source. The best Kurt Austin novel yet! Clive Cussler has done it again. Keep 'em coming!

Another wonderful, exciting adventure featuring Kurt and Joe. Well though out technical possibilities providing the background for this story. There were moments where I thought Kurt and Joe were being written off, only to emerge to fight the bad guys one more time. Nice twist of involving all of NUMA's personnel, including Dirk Pitt as the new director.

This book was ok. Out of all the Cussler books I've read, this was the slowest. It's ok, but not that good.

This reader continues to return to books authored by Clive Cussler because they are entertaining. The blend of fiction with a nod to events from the past, whether real or imagined, is a winning one, as evidenced by Cussler's many books. In addition, the appeal of being able to read of further adventures of a core group of characters is like reuniting with old friends.

Clive Cussler is know for his high energy and switch-ups. Never ending adventure with a team of experts ready to fool and/or solve the trickiest of world problems. Start the book and you won't put it down.
