Dirk Pitt returns in the extraordinary new novel from the #1 New York Times--bestselling author. In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman artifacts discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the Ottoman Empire, and to the existence of a mysterious "manifest," lost long ago, which if discovered again . . . just may change the history of the world as we know it.

Boooooooring.....worst Dirk Pitt book I've read. I should have put this down and read something else, but I stubbornly pushed through this. Bland story, bland characters, and bland writing. It's apparent that Dirk Cussler does the writing now with Clive reaping the royalties. Pity.

3.0 Crescent Dawn (Dirk Pitt Adventure)
Another solid Dirk Pitt book by Clive Cussler. Every one of is books is pretty much exactly the same thing, but I enjoy them even knowing that. It is not great literature, and the characters are very much stereotypes, but to me, that is what makes it enjoyable. One of my favorite lines goes somet...
