One of Cussler’s best stories in years! An exciting adventure through history to the present with a plausible well crafted plot. 9 of 10 stars

I like the reviewer’s comment about the usually prevalent misogyny and xenophobia that are characteristic of some of CC’s books being toned down in this one. The xenophobia is still there with the delusional, want to be god of the Mexican president. Unfortunately the story is somewhat bland and everything happens too smoothly. While toning down some of the extreme elements of the characters, CC & company also seem to have lost the spark of creativity which made the first books so interesting. Sam and Remi are just boring. Unlike some authors, with CC I don’t know where he starts making up historical background and playing with other factual data such as real technology. As a result, a few pages of historical background or pseudoscience babble make for a trudge to the next action section rather than interesting, informative reading. One thing that drives me crazy in CC books is the wanton treatment of archaeological sites. Here he has people who supposedly have archaeological training going into what are clearly ancient sites and cutting pieces off artifacts and breaking their way into places.
