Overview

Kurt Austin and the NUMA  Special Assignments Team search for an ancient Middle Eastern relic with secret ties to an American founding father in the #1 bestselling New York Times-bestselling series.
 
Years ago, an invaluable Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second target a UN investigator, only survives thanks to the timely assistance of Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala.

What’s so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top-secret scientific project that could change the world forever.

And that’s before the surprises really begin. . . .
    
Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler’s hallmarks, The Navigator is the best yet from “Clive the Incredible”.

I picked up a Cussler book one day in the mark downs and I am hooked. I have read many of the Dirk Pitt adventures and also Kurt Austin,the Numa files. They are all exciting and quite informative books. Cussler always inserts truthes into his books as well as fiction.The Navigator starts in Iraq after the fall of Saddham Hussein and the sacking of the Baghdad museum.It takes the reader on a journey in search of an ancient Phoenician statue intertwined with our own Thomas Jefferson. It's a great book as are all Cussler's books.

Great story that mixes fact with fiction along with adventure. I always find the Cussler books very fun to read because it takes me to places I have seen or would like to see. It also transports me to other times and places setting the "stage" for the main story. The charectors are fun to imagine and at times are bigger than life like most lead charectors can be. I like the twists and turns in the story line and to see how things come together at the climax of the story. I would recommend any of the other Clive Cussler books.

This was an entertaining read, and a good rainy day book. However, the premise, as so often happens, is a bit of a stretch. I don't want to reveal anything, BUT  the rationale at the end is questionable if not laughable.  Also some of the language and events are not quite Cussler's best work, as the one revview states.
