Back in the day when I read a lot of adventure novels (hey, I was a young boy) I loved the novels of Clive Cussler, especially the adventures of his most enduring character, Dirk Pitt. Well it turns out Mr. Cussler is still churning out novels, albeit with the help of a coauthor, Jack Du Brul, and still writing new adventures for Mr. Pitt. In the latest novel, The Titanic Secret, Mr. Pitt pairs up with another of Mr. Cusslers characters, the early 20th century detective Isaac Bell to solve a mystery surrounding one of the most famous events in history – the sinking of the Titanic. This book is pure nonsense, supremely preposterous, incredibly silly, and well, absolutely perfect for the escapism we all need.
