Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Artic Drift by Clive Cussler & Dirk Cussler
Cussler’s books are like my favorite maple glazed donuts, tasty not filling but oh so delicious. Global warming and unrestrained greed are addressed in this Dirk Pitt and kids book.
Cussler always does a terrific hook at the beginning of each book. He sets forth a mystery that you really want to explore and then carries you into the main story. Dirk Jr. and Summer have a side bar story that occupies about 20% of the book but ties tightly as the book winds down.
As all of Cussler’s work, action abounds, mysterious events occur and good triumphs. What more could you ask? This was a good take on greed and global warming without being preachy. An altogether entertaining book, I have to recommend.
