TITANIC SECRET (ISAAC BELL,#11) BY CLIVE CUSSLER
I was really looking forward to reading this because,like a lot of us Cussler fans, we have read and probably re read "Raise the Titanic" Unfortunately, I was disappointed in TITANIC SECRET. I really hate to use the word boring but lets face it, TITANIC SECRET is somewhat boring. Yes,there are a few parts of the book that are what I call page turners,but for the most part it was pretty dull.
In TITANIC SECRET, Isaac Bell is dead and buried and Dirk Pitt gets some papers from his lawyer that tells the backstory of the Titanic, the miners and the cargo that theoretically when down with the Titanic. Literally,thru the pages of time Pitt gets to relive the secret. The secret that went to the grave not only with the miners but with Isaac Bell as well.
One thing I do like about TITANIC SECRET is that Cussler has given the reader, along with Dirk Pitt closure on one of the novels Cussler wrote in the past. Other than that......well you be the judge.
