The Medusa Stone - Jack Du Brul
The Medusa Stone is my first Du Brul novel. His protagonist, Philip Mercer, reminds me of Cussler's Dirk Pitt. He's a geologist instead of an oceanographer, but they share the same amazing ability to escape from impossible odds, defeat the insane villain, and get the beautiful girl. This was a great adventure with plenty of action, suspense, and surprises. Africa, diamonds, kidnapping, and terrorists are a potent mix. Highly recommended.
