Clive Cussler on Charon's Landing

Dear Jack,
Have read Charonís Landing. Youíre a helluva writer. You certainly turn a phrase better than I do. Your attention to detail and your research boggles the mind. The technology you come up with is on a par if not superior to Clancy. I consider it a privilege to have your work compared favorably with mine in your reviews. Youíre coming along at a good time and Iím honored to give a quote for Charonís Landing:

ďJack Du Brul has to be the finest adventure writer on the scene today. Romance, violence, technology are superbly blended by a master story-teller in Charonís Landing. Du Brul creates a fast-moving odyssey that is second to none.Ē

Youíve got the gift, Jack. You launch the story and slowly begin to tighten the tension. I predict your break-through book, your big bestseller, is just around the corner.

--Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler fans, take notice! If you don't yet know the name Jack Du Brul, you certainly should. The budding young action/adventure star's debut novel, Vulcan's Forge -- which features the charismatic, hard-drinking, Dirk Pitt-like geologist Philip Mercer -- was published last year to tremendous praise. Now, Du Brul returns with Charon's Landing , his second inventive, high-flying Mercer adventure.

Ivan Kerikov, ex-leader of the KGB's secret science division, has joined forces with a renegade Arab oil minister to derail the U.S.'s plan to stop buying imported oil through the development of alternative fuels and the use of Alaska's oil. Kerikov's plans include crashing a fully loaded supertanker in the middle of San Francisco Bay and bombing the Alaska pipeline at key points. The minister's planned coup will make him dictator in his own country and head of OPEC - and will line Kerikov's pockets with several million dollars.

But Kerikov hasn't accounted for Philip Mercer, on the surface a mild-mannered geologist. When the discovery of a fire-blackened charter fishing boat leads to the murder of three of his drinking buddies, Mercer gets involved. And when Mercer gets involved, trouble follows - for everyone. Mercer knows all the right people in all the right places - or is it all the wrong people in all the wrong places?

Mercer's got extra trouble in the form of Aggie Johnston, the beautiful daughter of a petrochemical magnate. Eager to destroy her father, Aggie joins the eco-terrorists - until she discovers the ecological damage they are willing to do to promote their cause. Kidnapped by Kerikov and imprisoned in an offshore oil-drilling platform, Mercer and Aggie escape into the freezing ocean via a hair-raising thrill ride more exciting than any roller coaster.
