More About the Author

Clive Cussler began writing novels in 1965 and published his first work featuring his continuous series hero, Dirk Pitt(R), in 1973. His first non-fiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York, considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May, 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.
Cussler is an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, (NUMA) a 501C3 non-profit organization (named after the fictional Federal agency in his novels) that dedicates itself to preserving American maritime and naval history. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered more than 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites including the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, the Confederacy's Hunley, and its victim, the Union's Housatonic; the U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; the Cumberland, which was sunk by the famous ironclad, Merrimack; the renowned Confederate raider Florida; the Navy airship, Akron, the Republic of Texas Navy warship, Zavala, found under a parking lot in Galveston, and the Carpathia, which sank almost six years to-the-day after plucking Titanic's survivors from the sea.
In September, 1998, NUMA - which turns over all artifacts to state and Federal authorities, or donates them to museums and universities - launched its own web site for those wishing more information about maritime history or wishing to make donations to the organization.
In addition to being the Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is also a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London. He has been honored with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.
Cussler's books have been published in more than 40 languages in more than 100 countries. His past international bestsellers include Pacific Vortex, Mediterranean Caper, Iceberg, Raise the Titanic, Vixen 03, Night Probe, Deep Six, Cyclops, Treasure, Dragon, Sahara, Inca Gold, Shock Wave, Flood Tide, Atlantis Found, Valhalla Rising, Trojan Odyssey, Black Wind, Treasure of Kahn and Arctic Drift (the last three with his son, Dirk Cussler) as well as The Chase; the nonfiction books The Sea Hunters, The Sea Hunters II and Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt (R) Revealed; the NUMA(R) Files novels Serpent, Blue Gold, Fire Ice, White Death, Lost City, Polar Shift, The Navigator and Medusa (written with Paul Kemprecos); and the Oregon Files novels Sacred Stone and Golden Buddha (written with Craig Dirgo) and Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship and Corsair (written with Jack Du Brul).
Clive Cussler lives in Arizona.

While I'm generally never disappointed in a penned thriller by Clive Cussler, this time around it barely meets an average score. The story line had a lot of potential but I thought it was written rather amateurishly. It seemed to just skip through some of the plotting. While the history of the Huns and some of the action was enough to get me through, it wasn't enough to get this co-written thriller off the ground. Especially with a Cussler name on the cover.

I don't expect literary brilliance from Cussler's newer "co-authored" books, but they are generally at least entertaining. However, I couldn't even enjoy "Tombs." The writing can best be described as wooden and cliche-ridden, with zero character development. Even the author's brief attempts to introduce character development come across as disjointed and perfunctory, and fail to tie into the storyline (i.e., random short descriptions of exotic meals the Fargos enjoyed, clothes they purchased, etc). The storyline is poorly developed and completely un-believable; even the villans seem implausibly incompetent. I'm not sure what kind of reader this book is geared towards but is probably best enjoyed by young teenagers or by adults with a low IQ. This book is nothing like Cussler's earlier works; readers expecting as such will be sorely disappointed.

Clive Cussler set the standard for this genre and I`m a long time fan, but unfortunately, this effort falls far short of the bar. The villians are more comically inept than villainous, the heroes monotonous in their infallibility, and a less than credible supporting cast. This book is more of a page skipper than a page turner.

I have long enjoyed Clive Custler's work. His penchant for using rip-roaring narrative to generate minute by minute tension has provided hours of entertainment. That is, I have enjoyed his work until now. I find "The Tombs" to be an amateurish tome filled with cliches and drivel. The dialog is akin to the style of an elementary school Dick and Jane reader of the 1950's. "See Sam run. See Remi run too.'" "I'm going to put on my wet suit, said Sam. Me too said Remi." Multiple plotting with primary and secondary themes is absent. The reader must plod through boredom inducing repeated circumstances and inane conversations. Custler clearly did not write this manuscript. I suspect he sold his name for use on the book's cover by a here-to-fore little known author. While this is not unusual for established authors nor the first time for Custler, most of his other thus branded books were of much better quality.

he's finally done it! I'm off the wagon. What a piece of nonsense.
I only hope the next Dirk Pitt adventure has more substance, otherwise this
was the last CC book I bought.

I am thinking that Clive Cussler has to have a bad book in him somewhere and some day it will pop out on the printed page but this book
is not it. Another good one.
The good guys are good and the bad guys are, well, just rotten to the core bad.
The good guys are trying to save the ancient cultural treasures of the world and the bad guys want to get there first and get it melted down.
Typical Cussler-a good read that you will be glued to until done.

Format: Hardcover
The first 30 chapters are very predictable and somewhat boring with minimal action, and cover the search for four tombs where the bad guys always seem to get there first, but the Fargos are able to steal the treasure back. At the end of the book, the bad guys try to get revenge (I won't spoil it for you but it is classic Clive Cussler work). The last four chapters are actually very good and a real page turner. Too bad you had to plod through 300+ pages to get there.

If you want to read a children's book you might like this book. I have read all of Cusslers books and enjoyed most. This one is a poor collaboration and Cussler should be ashamed to put his name on the cover. Don' waste your money, If you must read wait for the soft cover or the discount pricing.
