Dirk Pitt matches wits with a nefarious Chinese smuggler who specializes in secretly transporting illegal Chinese immigrants into countries around the world, as he tracks his quarry to a remote port in Louisiana and searches for a treasure ship that sankat the beginning of World War II.
From the moment you begin Clive Cussler's latest undersea thriller, you know that you're in the hands of a old pro; thus any lingering crotchetiness over the book's stereotypical villains is offset by deft plotting and taut action. Judging by this book, "Special Projects" seems to be a euphemism for blowing stuff up. Pitt's worthy adversary is Qin Shang, a Chinese shipping tycoon who is definitely from the Fu Manchu school of management. As part of a nefarious plot to bring the United States to its knees with a flood of illegal immigrants, Qin Shang operates a secluded gulag in rural Washington, which the vacationing ha!
Pitt stumbles upon. A lot of entertaining mayhem ensues, both on the water and under it. Flood Tide 's enthusiastic xenophobia can stick in the throat, and may get in the way for some. But that flaw aside, it delivers the speed and shocks necessary.
