The Chase

When I'm in the mood for an adventure story, I often turn to the author Clive Cussler. His Dirk Pitt series has always amused me because he can make the most improbable plots seem possible enough to keep me reading. I read his work even though at least the early Dirk Pitt was something of a male chauvinist. The Chase, however, is an historical adventure set in 1906. As a Cussler novel goes, this one is fairly short, but as always it is full of fascinating "side" information as well.

Knitting--finished the pocket knitting for a Wonderful Wallaby project for next Christmas.

Thanks for the recommendation. I put both The Chase and The Mediterranean Caper on my "To Read" list.

I'm on a KAL to knit gifts for this year "in time" instead of "at the last minute". Come on over and join us, if you like. There are prizes involved!

ha! I've been reading Dirk Pitt novels for years and I love 'em! But I was so disappointed in the movie Saraha. I like Matthew McConaughey but he's just NOT Dirk Pitt!!!
