Review by SonicQuack
Cussler has produced some preposterous storylines in the Dirk Pitt series and thankfully Flood Tide is not one of them. Dirk remains as indestructible as ever, this time up against a chinese megalomaniac whose plans are indeed very crafty. The well thought out plot continues to escalate until its grand finale and provides plenty of thrills and spills, a few unlikely coincidences, a little romance, a few villains and lots of spent ammo. A little wordy in places, Flood Tide for the most part is a very compentent action thriller and should keep Cussler fans and new readers happy until the end.
