I mean, I don't mind a bit of wackiness now and then, but Reilly takes it up to eleven. I won't go into details but I felt like I was reading a saturday morning cartoon dressed as an adventure novel aimed for mature tastes.
I like Cussler and sure, he can also dabble in light fantasy at times, but Reilly starts wading in while continuing to pretend his feet are still dry. Pass.
Yeah I have to agree. I've read all three 'Jack West' books, and whilst enjoying them, they are way over the top. Traps upon traps upon traps, all easily and quickly solved by West, who, despite his skills, is always one step behind the bad guys.
