If you love a good action-adventure novel, you'll enjoy the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler. In the 10th installment, Dragon, it took place in the 1990s. When a ship was in trouble, it disrupted NUMA's mission at Soggy Acres underground. But things always weren't what they seem, when they've been recruited to join a MAIT team. Once briefed, they learned about a new evil empire in Japan who used robots for employees, and planned a devious plan to take over Europe, the Western Bloc countries, and USA. Once they discovered what they're up to, it was now up to Pitt and NUMA to bring them down, when they were a lot of betrayal and angst from World War Two. When the Japanese hatched a plan to destroy it by blackmail by nuclear bombs, it was now up to Dirk Pitt and NUMA to save the world against evil Japanese politicians who wanted to rule it, and stop it from happening. What a rush!
This was a fantastic classic and early Dirk Pitt NUMA action-adventure. This would thrill you, enthrall you, and excite you like no other. I loved the marine theme with NUMA from Virginia and down to Europe. This would feel like you're on the same adventurous journey with them, especially when you were reeled in from the first page. I cared about Dirk and the NUMA team, when they fought against the nasty Japanese. Good drama, excellent adventure with plenty of high-paced action, and plenty of suspense, too.
