I enjoyed the book several years ago under its American title Mediterranean Caper. Don't be caught as I was by the same book under another title. Mayday is the Mediterranean Caper under a different title... enjoyable but it's not necessary to buy both

Format: Paperback
Mediterranean Caper was a good Cussler yarn. I've read all his books, and this, along with some other books from the 80s, stand out as examples of his skill. Yes, these books became formulaic, cashing in on the name of the author by pushing out a couple (or more) books year, but they still are a decent read. These early novels were better than the later ones. So imaging my surprise on seeing a cover I didn't recognize under a new title, buying the book, then getting that deja vu feeling from the early pages, only to find out it was a renamed earlier book with a new cover. No mention of this fact anywhere. The publisher really screwed up here, almost reaching deceptive levels. As a Cussler fan, I felt very upset and betrayed.

As for the book, well, if you didn't read Mediterrean Caper, read it: it's a solid novel under any name. Just don't buy two copies like many of us were duped into doing.

Mayday Sept. 16 2005
By C. Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My husband is a "Clive Cussler" fan, so I do my best to acquire as many of Clive's books for him, as possible.

I was very disappointed to learn that MAYDAY was the original title published in England and was the same story as Mediterranean Caper.

It's sad when two different titles of the same book, leaves the shopper to believe that they are two different stories.

We still love Clive, but don't care for the practice of publishing under a second title.

Duplicate book June 30 2014
By William Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nice book but it is also published under the title "The Mediterranean Caper" so if you read one you have read the other.

Cussler 's first ! July 28 2014
By Anthony Kourkoumpas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Mayday (also published as The Mediterranean Caper , Dirk Pitt series #2 chronologically, but first written and published in 1973 ) is the book featuring for the first time the now famous, fearless. unbeatable Dirk Pitt, . Though , unfairly in my opinion , it received many unfavored critics as '"crude first attempt and bad writing " it was nonetheless nominated for "Best Paperback Original Novel of 1973." Apart from Dirk , the scene is set and the whole formidable team of Cussler' s NUMA heroes are introduced here : Giordino, Sandecker , Gunn etc . Fascinating reading , even after 40 years... A classic , you don't want to miss !
