Pure entertainment. . . . A particularly startling and polished thriller.– San Francisco Chronicle
A GREAT ADVENTURE THRILLER . . . RAISE THE TITANIC! STARTS FAST, SPINS FROM ONCE DIZZYING CLIMAX TO ANOTHER, HOLDS IT’S INNERMOST SECRETS UNTIL THE VERY END, AND KEEPS YOU SO AUDACIOUSLY ENTERTAINED YOU WON’T WANT IT TO COME TO A CLOSE . . . . SIMPLY SUPER.– Publisher’s Weekly
Probably one of the greatest adventure novelist of our time. Bought for $840,000 by Viking Publishing in 1976, Raise The Titanic put him on the map after 11 years of hard work. “Raise the Titanic!” is also the first book in which he inserted the formula that would make him successful for years to come. His formula always starts with a prelude in the past and than he ties it together either in the middle or at the end of the book. The writing is fast-paced, action packed, filled with twists and turns and a surprise ending that’ll knock your socks off.
This book not only made him a millionaire, but it also established him as the Grand Master of Adventures. “Raise the Titanic!” is still to this day, one of the best written spy-adventure thriller novels ever written.
