March top read

Settle in for a page turning adventure packed with action and intrigue with the book of the month for March –¬†Celtic Empire by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler.

Clive Cussler was the best selling author of over seventy novels and is considered to be the world’s number one adventure writer. His son Dirk is following in his father’s footsteps and is a celebrated author in his own right.

One of the last book released before Clive’s passing earlier this year, Celtic Empire continues the story of the much-loved Dirk Pitt and his incredible adventures.

Synopsis:

The murder of UN scientists investigating mysterious deaths in El Salvador. A deadly collision in the waterways off Detroit. An attack from tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the Nile. Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father three thousand years ago.

During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and threaten everything and everyone he knows – most importantly, his own family.

Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.
