Among those who perish is afamous scientist whose revolutionary engines powered the ship to herwatery grave; while Pitt is unable to save Dr. Egan, he rescues hisbeautiful daughter Kelly from the sea, and later from a murder attemptaboard the rescue vessel. Pitt and his trusty pal Al Giordino track thesinking to the boardroom door of a multinational conglomerate calledCerberus, whose evil CEO has designs on the worlds oil supply. Hell doanything to keep Egans advanced engines and secret formula forfrictionless oil off the market--even sabotage another vessel, this time aluxury passenger submarine. By the time our heroes have foiled themasterminds nefarious plots, theyve also uncovered the existence of aworking submarine nearly a century before one actually existed--irrefutable proof of a Viking landing on the Hudson River--and the remainsof the British sailor who inspired Jules Vernes Captain Nemo. A solidpage-turner that even features a cameo appearance by the authorhimself, Valhalla Rising snaps, crackles, and pops with Cusslers usualbrio. --Jane AdamsI have read every Clive Cussler book. (I feel were on a first-name basis!)Whether hes written it alone or with another author, they are alwaysentertaining and of the cant-put-down-til-I-find-out-what-happens variety.My biggest praise is that he writes as someone from today, with a heart forthe bygone era. He doesnt need to use blatant sex and vulgar swearing toget his message across. Just like the good, old movies, some thingsshould be left to the imagination ... and Cussler does just that ... tastefully.With so much trash being published today, Id love to meet him and shakehis hand in thanks!
