Still reading the books I bought at a used book sale in the fall before I get back to my 100 Must-Read Novels or whatever they're called.
A typical Clive Cussler novel, full of action in various exotic locales, spiced with historical connections. This one runs the gamut from the ancient Phoenicians to Thomas Jefferson. I found it quite entertaining although far-fetched in places, but we read these kind of books to escape from the ordinary, right?
I did enjoy the maniac who was obsessed with medieval jousting tournaments. My kind of bad guy!
