Review: Treasure (Dirk Pitt #9) by Clive Cussler

3 Stars
Series: Dirk Pitt
Author: Clive Cussler
Pages: 544

This book started out confusing for me, all of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels start off in the past, but this one started July 15, 391 A.D. That threw me for a moment. Though after my initial confusion things started to make more since.

In this ninth book we see Dirk Pitt looking for the tomb of Alexander the Great and the remains of his famous library, I found this very interesting as I have never heard of anything like it before. (Not big on history.) While this book starts out at a good pace I felt it kind of slowed down for me as the plots got deeper. While looking for this treasure Egypt is going into chaos as well as Mexico, then both presidents disappear. Along with Dirks father.

I was very intrigued by Dirk's father, Senator George Pitt,  I can't remember him being mentioned in any other book unless it was just in passing, people saying who Dirk's father was or something. In this one we actually get a description of him! And he wasn't really what I had pictured, I guess I was looking as someone closer to Dirk in character, but other than a few things they didn't seem much alike at all to me. I wonder where Dirk gets his daring from, his curiosity for the unknown? His mother? Mentioning her this was the first time we ever heard of Dirk mother. And well it wasn't much to go on.

This book to me though I did really like it, and almost gave it four stars, I just couldn't it had to many hang ups for me, though some of the ending did make up for it. We start out with the lost treasure then that gets put on the back burner while the terrorist troubles came to the front, which I didn't see how there was any connection between the two and it took up most of the novel. Then at almost the end we get back to the treasure. I found the two plots wasn't very well intertwined like in the last books, I struggled to keep up at times. I think the book had a lot more potential but came away a good read anyways.

"Or we can try plan three."
Giordino peered at Pitt curiously. "Can't be any worse than the first two." Then his eyes widened and he groaned. "You're not-oh, God, no!

Also, I found it slightly ironic that as I read this book I was also reading news reports of the goings on in Egypt the last few weeks, and they sound about as bad as in the book!
