By Andyof Book Review of Sacred Stone by Clive Cussler
I finished this book by Clive Cussler just before leaving Lome, Togo. I am a big fan of Clive Cussler, however one problem is to remember which of his books I have read. Sacred Stone in to me similar to the Tom Clancy book called executive decision whereby a plane lands on the inauguration or something of a new President of the USA and kills the upper level leaders of the USA. Sort of a prediction of the September 11, crazies attack. Sacred Stone is a fictional account of how a nuclear bomb is smuggled into England and almost explodes, I like Clive, adds Elton John to the story, what a sense of humor. The dirty bomb, the retribution or revenge of a person that wants to destroy parts of Mecca and the Islamic world. Two separate themes, an Islamic attempt to explode an nuclear bomb in England. Then a story of how an American billionaire tries to destroy the Islamic world. The balance of mind, the story, the ability to conceive a possible real situation and then write about is great, however sad it is possible. I often ask people, do we really know what happens in the world, if there was nuclear bomb defused, disarmed and stopped in the middle of New York city, would the world every know. To me the only responsible action of the leaders of the world could take would be to cover this up, keep it quiet and hope the world never knew. What happens if Osama Bin Laden was found, killed, the whole world would erupt in a series of suicide bombers. If he is killed, I hope to never know, and I pray the world never knows. Clive is a master, of the what if? I am working on reading Timeline by Michael Crichton again, I think I have read it before. Sacred Stone by Clive Cussler
