First off I have to say that Dirk Pitt is easily the suaviest hero ever. He delivers clever one liners better than 007'which is tough'. The story is fast and furious with plenty of characters. The action scenes are very thrilling and the whole driving down the ski slope is just awesome. The climax is also very well done. The ending line leaves you smiling and saying, 'Pitt is just amazing.' It's my new favorite book and it will be difficult to overcome it'though I'm almost a quarter into Dragon and it's very entertaining'. Indiana Jones fans will love the classic moments in this novel and it's well worth your time

One of Cusslers best! It is a great book. This was my first Cussler book and one bite got me hooked. If you like an adventure with a little background history i really recomend this book for you. Plenty of action but nothing too gory. Over all very good book.

As far as adventure novels go it's hard to beat Clive Cussler, and 'Treasure' is one of his best. I've read all the Cussler novels and although this one's not my favorite I was in no way disappointed, and neither will you. I try to save my five star ratings for the few books that really impress me each year and this one was close for this genre. Well Done!

This novel features an intriguing back-story, a worthy adversary, plot twists galore, and the fast-paced action that one expects from Cussler. One of the five best 'Dirk Pitt' novels.
