Dirk Pitt can be counted on to sneer at danger and, with vast powers of deduction as well as impressive physical prowess, find whatever treasure he seeks. Inca Gold finds Pitt in Peru in a race to locate the priceless treasures of the last Inca king (occasionally thwarted by members of the Shining Path and a wicked family of ancient artifact smugglers). Aided by a strong abridgment, McGillin easily navigates the myriad plots and subplots. Male and female characterizations and accents are numerous, and McGillin effectively portrays them all. Although Pitt sounds suspiciously like the sardonic Clint Eastwood, his portrayal reinforces his rugged manliness. This is a skilled, entertaining reading of a typical action-packed Cussler novel.
