Kurt Austin and Egypt

As I get older I treat these like boys own stories , macho heroes and an impossibly survived storyline.
Great way to pass away hours while recovering from illness.

Another Great from Clive and Graham

One of the few books I have listened to recently that I just had to keep listening no matter where I went. Gripping and adventurous with a few funny moments. I love the characters and the adventures they go through. Thanks for another great story.

Slam Dunk

Listened to this whilst on holiday as watching the kids around the pol and reading a Cussler book isn't really an option! Scott Brick delivered another superb performance backed up with Cussler's awesome ability to spin a superb yarn based on current (sic) Middle Eastern sentiment. I thorough enjoyed it especially the attention to detail. And nine of the kids drowned! Not mine anyway.
