I picked this book up from the new books pile at the library looking for an easy vacation read (which will tell you how long ago I read the book). It also crossed off a topic bingo square for the summer reading program that year.
Length: 448 pages
Summary: An unknown agent is doing all it can to keep a statue, The Navigator, from public viewing. That agent, Balthazar, is foiled by an archeologist and several NUMA field agents. The secret the Navigator was hiding was the location of Solomon’s gold and a version of the 10 Commandments brought to the North America by the Phoenicians.
Final thoughts: I was not very impressed by this book. Normally I enjoy Cussler, but this seemed so shallow. It’s his 34th book, and it’s a bad sign when an author starts writing book with another author. Perhaps his older books would be more enjoyable.
Title comes from: The statue at the heart of all the intrigue was call the Navigator.
Reading challenges fulfilled: none since this is a review from a book in a previous year
