Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
Sea adventure novelist Clive Cussler is as highly regarded for his efforts to hunt and find real shipwrecks (see THE SEA HUNTERS) as he is for his exciting NUMA books that are far from the Pitts. Mr. Cussler and Craig Dirgo provide a new account of their search for shipwrecks (and air-wrecks) around the world. Each description provides fascinating historical background data that includes information about the vessel, where it allegedly sunk and why, and the team search of records and other related evidence before finally conducting an on-site investigation. Bottom line is that THE SEA HUNTERS II is an absorbing account that confirms or denies the “authoritative” locale. Though a fictional account of what the crew might have said as the ship sank might turn off historical purists, THE SEA HUNTERS II is an engaging look at predominately nautical history through the disasters that typically shocked those individuals aware at that time.
