Turkey. The latest Dirk Pitt novel from Clive and Dirk Cussler is titled Crescent Dawn, and much of the action takes place in and around Turkey. The structure of this action thriller follows the authors’ proven formula: multiple plot lines; various time periods; and characters that are either heroes or villains. The usual 500+ pages provide ample opportunity for rapid page turning as the action moves quickly. The whole Pitt family appears on these pages, and their exploits are both outlandish and highly competent. The villains are almost comic, and before a reader knows it, the action has wrapped up and the story ends. Readers looking for quality writing are likely to be disappointed, while those readers who like heroes to be swashbucklers, and villains to be malicious can enjoy every page of this novel.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
