Even though Dirgo’s first book, “The Einstein Papers,” wasn’t that great, I knew Clive Cussler couldn’t be wrong about him, and in “Tremor” it showed. The writing is more practiced, the editing tighter (though the copyediting was nonexistent), and the characters more alive. Dirgo is still going with a conglomerate cast rather than focusing on a single protagonist, but his characters are distinct enough to tell them apart, so it works.

Dirgo has written on the Oregon Files with Clive Cussler, so he comes from a solid thriller/adventure background. This one involved some little known work of Tesla, and the effects it had.

After reading this solo effort by Craig Dirgo I can understand the drop in quality seen in some of the later Clive Cussler novels, especially those co-authored by Dirgo. This book was entirely sophomoric in the plot, research and overall tenor. If I am reading a book and come across an obvious flaw in a factual statement, I become overly aware of others as they may appear. I won't list them but, believe me, they are in abundance. I would not recommend this book. And it is a shame, as the back st...more

You know when you are reading a book and you can almost imagine the events taking place in a movie?

It wasn't terrible, but I probably won't pull another Dirgo book off the shelf to read anytime soon.

The best part about the book, by far, was the introduction. I really enjoyed the Tesla aspects of the book. The rest just didn't meet my expectations.

This book made me want to do more research on...more

A good book gone bad by numerous and glaring misspellings. I don't mean a couple. I mean dozens. It really took away from the story. What the heck is wrong with this author? On top of that, his publisher couldn't catch them? Craig really should invest in a dictionary.

Kudos to Craig Dirgo for giving Clive Cussler a role in saving the nation!
