|Internationally acclaimed author Clive Cussler applauds Scott Frank's "Darkness Descends."
GreatNews from ScottNews!!
As there had been a recent news update (but when there is GreatNews to share--you share it immediately!), this will be (fairly) short and to the point.
When Scott is reading (usually at the pace of a novel or more a week) there is one author he will read, above all others, regardless of any other book he may be devouring at the time: Clive Cussler.
A new Cussler book is, for him, a treat and a thrill to read. Cussler's action and adventure is unsurpassed in popular fiction. A model of plot development, characterization, suspense; in short: the written word.
And now, internationally acclaimed author Clive Cussler--the writer who created Dirk Pitt, Kurt Austin, Admiral Sandecker and the rest of the NUMA crew with their hair-raising, fun-filled adventures--recently read and appreciated "Darkness Descends."
Clive had this to say about Scott Frank's first published novel:
"I truly enjoyed it. A real spellbinder with a multitude of twists and turns through a labyrinth of intrigue. A read not easily forgotten...a timeless tale of suspense."
That from Scott's favorite scribe!
