Predictable. The eleventh formulaic installment in Clive Cussler’s NUMA series featuring heroic protagonist Kurt Austin is titled, The Pharaoh’s Secret. I’ve noticed that I pick up a predictable Cussler novel when I’m tired, and don’t need to think much while reading. As with the earlier Cussler novels, the heroes win, the bad guys lose, and the action entertains. Readers with clear expectations from this author are those who are most likely to enjoy this and any of the novels in the series. I’m pretty confident that I’ll continue to read novels in this series, and will delay opening them until my brain needs to relax.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
