It's been a long time since I read a Clive Cussler book and the first that did not have Dirk Pitt as the main character (I read many of those). But, there are a lot of similarities between Dirk Pitt stories and stories involving the new protagonist, Kirt Austin. First, Cussler's books are slow starting, as you have to understand the history behind his tales before he launches into the modern story; second, unless you know something about t ...more

I enjoy Clive Cussler novels, no matter how far-fetched, ever since I first read *Raising the Titanic* and hero Dirk Pitt overcame incredible odds (and the Russians (it was still the Cold War era, mind you)) and actually "rose" the Titanic. See? I can really hang in there for the fantasy.

If I have a must read author, then I suppose it would have to be Clive Cussler. His plots are outlandish and ridiculous, his dialogue is...well, laughably pathetic and his heroes are annoyingly sanctimonious, but I'm still hooked on them all. They're worth their weight in gold just for the action and head-snapping pace.
And so it goes with WHITE DEATH. In this book Kurt and Joe are u ...more

A recommended read for all Clive Cussler fans and for those who have not yet met this great author.
