Another Cussler novel in the fast-and-fun action category, the ‘Skeleton Coast’ was much as I imagined it to be.
Chapters 21 and His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. It started off quite well with a decent idea of lost diamonds in the desert but as soon as the unbelievably, too-good-to-be-true heroes of the Oregon show up, all credibility went out the window.

cusler They’ve become formulaic, novel-by-the-numbers, with no originality or spark. I look more at co-written books as the lesser-known author’s work, and after reading a few books by Morrison and DuBrul, I think this book the 3rd or 4th DuBrul book I’ve tried kills for me his contributions to the series.

I also enjoyed the other familiar Cussler characters showing up in order to save the day together.
