Review by SonicQuack
Inca Gold starts off with a sequence befitting a grand finale. The 150 page opening scene is unlike any other previous Cussler style and sets the scene for an epic treasure hunt. Dirk Pitt and the usual NUMA cast find themselves embroiled in race to unearth the Incan treasure before the shadowy and evil Zolans. It's all typical Cussler - however at some point Pitt has become almost unbreakable. Realism is stretched to a transparent layer as Pitt moves from one escape from death to the next, taking an incredible beating and never stopping. It's entertaining of course and Dirk Pitt fans will lap it up, however Inca Gold isn't the most gripping entry in the series.
