When Dirk Pitt, Al Giordino, and Rudi Gunn take to the field, life becomes difficult for the villains and wonderfully exciting for readers. This action tale also includes Dirk, Jr. and Summer. Dirk and Dirk, Jr. are also kept busy protecting (or attempting to protect) the women in their lives.
The book is enlivened by multiple story threads and mysteries that powerfully intersect before the story is over. The backdrop involves terrorism for profit and corrupt religious leaders of more than one faith. It felt gratuitous and not credible to me to make the religious leaders to be evil doers, and it made me grade the book down one star.
As always, Dirk and Al trying to save the world becomes the center of the story's appeal and that center holds up well. I also liked the use of "advanced" technology in not such extreme (and not so hard to credit) forms in this book.
Dirk, Jr. and Summer still come across as pale imitations of their father. I hope that future stories will be stronger in this regard.
If you enjoy learning more about countries you don't know much about, you'll find the aspects of the story that occur in Turkey to be fun. I know that I did.
I must also note that this is another case where the Kindle version of the book is vastly overpriced versus the hardcover. Why do publishers do that?
