The Chase (2007)

By Clive Cussler.

This one was way better than I expected!

I've only read Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler earlier - just one to be precise - but that one I loved! It had villains with character, and depth, and commitment, and an unexpectedly multifaceted plot where you related to both the good and the bad guys, but of course more to the good guys... I think? I'm not sure actually.

It's similar here. Though the villain's a cold-hearted killer I'm not entirely sure who's side I'm on, but the story is captivating, and very well-written, and it kept my interest piqued from the very start.

If I hadn't been reading this in segments during shorter commuter train rides (30-40m) the beginning would've gone full circle at the end so well too. As it is I forget the corpse placement when I reach the end. I forget the date, too. I'm not entirely sure who the silver fox is. They reveal just a little in the intro though, and more at the end, and the segway back in time, to the story of the Butcher Bandit and the Bell on his tail... it's just perfect.

If you're looking for good adventure this is definitely such a book. And it ties into historical vents and locations as well - I feel like I've learned a bit even during this fictitious session of escapism too.

Entertainment and know-how, told in sometimes well-worded and inspiring ways, as an aspiring author also.

Clive Cussler's starting to turn into one of my favorite authors.

Warmly recommended reading if your reason thereto is to truly get away and experience something. It's a great adventure, a chase by land by sky by the sea... well maybe not by sky, but by car by train by boat and even by a little motorbike.

It's a ride. I keep extending this conclusion here but yes... it's a ride.

 rated 5/5: friggin awesome
