    Some years ago I read Cussler probably with Dirk Pitt So thought I'd try this with different protagonists The audio version isn't the best one to choose because of all the statistics etc I like Remi and Sam but their scrapes with the bad guys are a little unbelievable Maybe it was because of the reader but the s

Labels of twelve bottles of rare wine And when Napoleon dies the bottles disappearTreasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Delaware when they are shocked to discover a World War II German u boat Inside they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's 'lost cellar. Iam having a hard time figuring out what to say about this novel I believe the ARGH pencilled in near the end of the copy I read may say it allthat ARGH no doubt had to do with a xiphos a Spartan sword being referred to as having gleaming steel showing through on the blade The xiphos was bronze and in later times iron There would be no gleaming steelThat really says it all This book read like someone spliced some action scenes into a series of Wikipedia printouts the entire thing was an infodump Or to be accurate a series of infodumps pertaining to everything from Nazi minisubs to Napoleonic winemaking techniues to Crimean Sea smuggling tactics In between there were lavishly detailed descriptions of how to temporarily disable a speedboat or extract a tracking chip from an iPhoneTruly this was research porn Cussler obviously sketched out a vague scenario one that made next to no sense veering as it did from Nazi minisubs in the Carolinas to vineyards in France to THE TREASURIES OF DELPHI and handed it off to his cowriter on a paper napkin The cowriter clearly enjoys researching and couldn t bear to eliminate any of his thousands of carefully compiled notes and references So instead he incorporated them all into the novel as its main text Add a character or two here and there and a few guns and explosions and boom Novel With convenient Nazi sub on the cover seeing as all Clive Cussler novels appear to be mandated to have Nazi subs on their cover if the preview of the next book the publisher is touting in the back is to be trustedIn all honesty this wasn t a BAD book It read uickly and I even learned a few things But it was rather like going on a Wikipedia binge and clicking from link to link to link and finding myself four hours later on a page that I can t figure out how I got to bleary eyed and slightly dizzy Only with explosions and a bit stilted dialogueAt least now I know how to take that tracking chip out of my phone though
