Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 12th hair-raising Dirk Pitt thriller, which sees the adventurer hunt for a fabulous hoard of Inca gold before the richest prize known to man is lost forever. 

A call for help from a stricken archaeological expedition brings Dirk Pitt to a sacred well high in the Andes. There he confronts a band of ruthless art thieves who plunder ancient sites for their precious artefacts. 

But soon Dirk Pitt faces even graver danger, as he searches for a lost Spanish galleon and hunts for a fabulous hoard of Inca gold. And in a desperate race against time, Pitt must track down a sacred site - before the richest prize known to man is lost to the world forever....

Bad editing

As usual the story was good, and the narrator was as usual good,but for some reason it seemed like bits were edited in, because his voice would go from the normal pitch and volume, to a lower pitch and louder, just like that particular bit had been recorded at a different time and on different equipment and added in, which I found very annoying and off putting, because it didn’t fit in with with how he was reading it. To be honest it totally ruined it for me.

Of it's time, so don't buy unless you can cope

You have to except that when these were written it was a sexist, jingoistic world of stereotypes.

The story rolls along with the bravo we love. Good guys triumph, all be it with some struggle. Adventure in a tin

Shame about the Editing.

A good story, totally immersing.
Although the poor editing of the audio and adding verbal text as if other narrative was wrong, made for an irritating listen. As to the thought that anyone actually cares if it’s meters or feet. Just Choose one snd stick with it.
We don’t care.

Strange narration

Somtimes a different voice narrates parts, it's very perturbing and doesn't match the rest told.

Audio Levels Vary Widely.

Often between Paragraphs. Sometimes within Sentences. Story wise you know what you're getting. Narrator always good. just the sound levels let it down, jolting the listener out of the experience.

Great story but...

This is a great story but the recording is not the typical quality. The sound is the most noticeable when a part that was recorded at a different time is brought in. Sound is lower or clarity is different. I have never experienced this with a book of this caliber.

Good book...but sound issues

The sound is all jacked up. it continually cycles between quiet and loud throughout the entire book. Please fix!

Great book, BAD audio quality

Another great Clive Cussler book... but the audio quality is horrible. it sounds like there's different readers, the volumes change, and some of the metrics are for the European market and Summer for the US market. it should be easy to fix this mess so it doesn't detract from the great story

Another winner! Cussler has outdone himself again.

Another wonderful Dirk Pitt Adventure. I don't know how Clive Cussler can be so creative and come up with such wonderful stories, but I'm grateful he does.
