"While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous--a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings them both to Cuba as well--and squarely into harm's way. The three of them have been in desperate situations before ... but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now"--… (mais)

I've been an on again off again fan of Clive Cussler since high school. Nowadays his son Dirk is his co-writer. While the quality of the writing is not quite the same and the characterizations are a bit thin, I still enjoy the fast-paced adventure. Equivalent of a decent made for cable action movie. ( )

“When power is up for grabs,” Pitt said, “the first casualty is often liberty.”


Oof.

I'm starting to feel like a broken record. Didn't already do Cuba, seafloor mining, and Aztec treasures? Admittedly not in the same book. And they do mention that Dirk Pitt (Sr) met Fidel Castro once upon a story. So there's something.

Overall, there area lot of threads going on that don't really feel all that related. The mining plotline isn't that interesting. The Aztec treasures are pretty cool, although feels like a much smaller plot o the book.

And while for the most part Cussler has gotten much, much better about misogyny throughout his books:


"I saw a bright light," she said in a weak voice. "I thought it was an angel calling me, then I realized it was something else."

"What's that?" Pitt asked, leaning close.

"It was you," she said, reaching up to her father's face and stroking away a tear.


Daw... but eep? Just about all of them keep getting captured over and over again. Dirk Pitt Sr? Dirk Pitt Jr? (still confusing) Al? They can rescue themselves. But Summer? Needs dear old aging dad.

Ug.

Overall, it's more of the same, but enjoyable enough. ( )

I have to disagree with any reviewer that says this is another great book by Clive Cussler, who has become as formulaic as anyone writing today. The basic plot has rogue forces in the Cuban government hoping to wrest control of Cuba from Raul Castro, using an arms deal for uranium with the North Koreans as currency. The uranium is being mined off the ocean floor, with potentially catastrophic environmental consequences. Al Giordino and Dirk Pitt head off to investigate while the Pitt twins are seeking archaeological relics. As always, everyone is kidnapped at some point and then spend much of the book rescuing each other and solving the parallel mysteries.

Good Read! ( )

I have had this book on my shelf for so long. I should have picked it up sooner! I really enjoy books that have an interesting story but also introduce me to new things. I learned so much about history of Aztec civilizations, diving, environmental issues like dead areas in the sea and pollution in the oceans. I also really loved the locations in Cuba, Mexico and Jamaica. This was an interesting read. I will read more by this author. ( )
