My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Dirk Pitt matches wits with a nefarious Chinese smuggler who specializes in secretly transporting illegal Chinese immigrants into countries around the world, as he tracks his quarry to a remote port in Louisiana and searches for a treasure ship that sankat the beginning of World War II.
It’s the usual Pitt-Giordino heroic act against the evil doer. However, it’s not my favourite story. To begin with, the story starts with too much coincidence. Secondly, even though Pitt was in a bad condition and got shot twice he still managed to go through it all. Last but not least, I always find it annoying when the writer became extra in his own book. If you’re a Clive Cussler reader, you know what I mean.
I like the last part. It’s my kind of ending!
