This book was very different from the other NUMA books by Clive Cussler or co-written by Clive Cussler. Golden Buddha is set in the same "universe" as the NUMA books, but does not share any characters (other than those characters who made an appearance in an earlier Dirk Pitt novel from which this series is actually a spinoff). The best way to describe this novel would be a very elaborate episode of Mission: Impossible. Imagine an author taking the time to draw out the complexity of a classic MI mission over the length of a novel rather than 48 minutes of television and you'll have a pretty good idea what Golden Buddha was like. Was it improbable? Of course! Was it fun? Sure was!
2nd book i read from Clive. About a "corporation" that rights the wrongs of the world through espionage and guile while all the time getting paid really well. Almost like freelance spies. Clive's book are just plain fun and easy to read.
New character, Juan Cabrillo, with high tech ship with non-descript exterior, help put Tibet back in the hands of the Dalai Lama.
