One of the best Kurt Austin and side kick Joe using all of their talents to locate and analysis of situation to save the good from the bad. Topic was unusually interesting and kept this reader's attention to the end. Strongly recommend this be added to the Clive read list.
A maniac with a god complex wishes to control the world via minibots. While a good story fit for the big screen I felt it was too fast paced for the characters to develop.
i found it to be a fast-paced, exciting read and i think i'll be looking for some of the previous books by Clive Cussler (with Graham Brown, an atty who lives in AZ, co-authoring). The Storm is one of those, what I’ve heard my friend say or read others describe as: classic Cussler testosterone-driven action, over-the-horizon technical wizardry, beautiful and talented women, and exotic locations. it’s all true.
