The Mediterranean Caper is the kind of book that will appeal to people who are looking for adventure, and a lot of it. The main character, Dirk Pitt, is the kind of self-assured, no-nonsense, take-charge hero that you expect to find in old-Hollywood war movies or James Bond films. The plot gets very complex at times, and so is hard to describe, but here goes: Major Dirk Pitt's services are requested at a scientific research vessel in Greece that's been experiencing acts of sabotage. While Pitt is flying in to visit the vessel, he stumbles across an attack on a U.S. Air Force Base by, of all unlikely things, a World War II biplane. Soon after, he meets the seductive niece of the German shipping guru who promptly tries to murder Pitt. Suffice it to say that these events are all connected. The mystery is in how they're connected, and how Dirk Pitt will survive his investigation. If you're looking for sympathetic, vibrant characters, this is probably not the book for you. The emphasis here is on thrilling action topped with adrenaline served up in the exotic location of the Greek Isles.
