Summary

Dirk Pitt returns in Crescent Dawn, Clive and Dirk Cussler's extraordinary new novel, now available as an unabridged, downloadable audiobook read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.
In A.D. 327, a Roman galley with an extraordinary cargo barely escapes a pirate attack. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions.
What ties them all together?
NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team are about to find out, as Roman artifacts discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the Ottoman Empire. From Washington to London to the treacherous shores of the Near East, dangerous men and desperate acts fill their path, and at the end of it, the most dangerous thing of all: the rumoured existence of a mysterious "manifest," lost long ago, which if discovered again... just might change the history of the world as we know it.

Okay but...

It's not a bad story but does lapse into some pretty juvenile conceits At times. In case either the author or narrator stoop to read these reviews, here are a couple of messages:

Mr Cussler - everyone in England does not speak as though they have just stepped out of a Victorian period drama.

Mr Brick - please try and learn some regional English accents as neither posh with an American twang, nor Bert from Mary Poppins currently feature among them.
