I really enjoy the dirk Pitt Srries

I really have enjoyed the dirk Pitt series, the humour, action and stories have been remarkable. Unfortunately it’s been annoying waiting for books to come out on audible in the right order, having to wait for earlier stories to come out after the latest book has been released is more than annoying. This book has been superb, I have been waiting for this one for a long time, and it’s been worth the wait. Now it’s just waiting for the rest of them!! Thank you for a great series, great characters and fantastic adventures.

Great story but has a technical issue

The story is very good and Scott Brick does a great job. I would give 5 stars but I’m only giving 4 because chapter 39 is incomplete. If that is fixed then I will adjust my rating

one of Cuddlers best Pitt stories.

Too bad the movie should have follow his story. It would have been a better movie.

This Review Needs a Headline

19+ hours of listening. Multiple threads include a different take on history and continual stories of desert survival. Combine that with impending environmental disaster, a dictator and a wimpy American President and you get the idea. Characters include Dirk, Al, the Admiral and a love interest who is rescued from the desert. I believe that the book could have been half as long and been twice as fun to read.

Awesome

Brick is the best! I have listened to authors I’ve never heard of because Scott was the reader. I’ve never been disappointed!

Awesome Listen!

Sahara by Clive Cussler is a great book. I believe that this audiobook is basically the same story that previously was on CD. Scott Brick is wonderful bringing the characters to life and adds the right emotions to his voice. I so enjoyed this book
