Countdown. If the summer has passed you by without letting you savor sticky cotton candy or some fried food on a stick, it’s not too late to enjoy the reading equivalent from a novel like Zero Hour by Clive Cussler. This novel in the NUMA series follows the predictable and reliable formula: Kurt Austin comes close to death while outsmarting a villain. Fans will enjoy the wit and dialogue from a familiar cast of characters. As usual, Cussler weaves a good story, keeps the action lively through a countdown toward peril, and the bad guy loses in the end. The short amount of time I spent with this novel delivered a large dose of entertainment.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
