I had never read any Clive Cussler books before I went on vacation and someone had left "The Chase" in the room. I was immediately hooked and I now always keep my eye open for his books. When my son gifted me my very first Kindle, he asked what book do you want? This book, Golden Buddha, was the very first book that I bought. I was not disappointed! The Oregon Files are a great series and I now own all of them. This book introduces the smart, handsome and fiercely loyal Chairman of the corporation, Juan Cabrillo and his talented crew. (It's a nice change from his Dirk books, although I love that character too!) I really enjoyed the rich detail given to the Dali Lama character and his entourage. Golden Buddha has wonderful twists and surprises, which I love as an avid reader. The problem that I have, since I read so much, is anticipating the outcome of either the next scene or the ending of the book. With this book, and of course most of Cusssler's books, I don"t have that problem. I would recommend this book, and of course the author.
