Another supurb listen.
Yes, it may seem that I like Clive Cussler, in fact i had never READ a Clive Cussler book but since getting my ipad and iphone and whenever I get the time to listen you can guarantee if I have a Cussler in my library i'll stick it on because you can always be assured of a great listen and this book is no exception.
