reading The Solomon Curse for being rather dull with too many info dumps Pirate was much better, although still rather bland and shallow It s just too easy for the Fargos, although I do enjoy getting the drop, eventually, on the bad guys And I do so very much appreciate how considerate the Fargos are towards the people they encounter.I can sympathize with Alexandra To a point It s when she throws in with the bad guys that I want to smack her silly As for that Avery Too typical of the bad guys who think it s not fair when someone steals something they stole in the first place What s funny about the guy is how clueless he is for all his smarts.It s rather confusing with all the past history that is sprinkled throughout, as I tried to figure out who was related to whom and where that cipher wheel came from Went to Were William the Marshal and Robert de Braose related I ask because Maude de Braose is said to be William s daughter.There s a bit in here about Robin Hood and I hate to admit that I suspect it s muchaccurate than the movies Ah the romance has died giggle The tag line for Pirate made me laugh Sam kept promising Remi her vacation would start tomorrow, right after each Little

it s part of the intrigue Perhaps the coauthor comes up with the new historical or archeological scenario, and Cussler helps craft the characters and plot This one involves the impossibly matched Sam and Remi as they track a pirates treasure and The English Crown Jewels around the world Usually I find the outcome on these is well telegraphed early on, leavi The big mystery at the start of most

at one point That said, the ending seemed to wrap up rather quick, as if there was a page word time limit that came around before the authors were ready for it Happy holiday reading The Associated Press AP has it right, It s clear that having Burcell join Cussler as a co author has rejuvenated this series Great read I live in Silicon Valley so it was fun to have the story start in San Francisco, making the book feel local, even though they globe trotted afterwards Robin Burcell lives in Tracy near San Francisco so her writing about that area has a genuine authenticity I want to be careful not to be a spoiler, so I will eschew a review.
