My younger brother, who loves boats an sailing recently turned me on to Cussler. I've read four of his books in the past month, and look forward to reading more. Very suspensful, and exciting. I'm glad that our local library has about 25 of his books. Hopefully I can do some inter-library loans after I read these 25. I'd say that the Oregon Files are my favorite so far. I'd like to hear about other's favorites.
