The latest Dirk Pitt adventure pits him against an evil diamond tycoon. (Dec.)

Gr 10 Up-An abridgment of Cussler's adult title of the same name (S & S, 1996). Diabolical diamond mogul Arthur Dorsett, descendent of a convicted highwayman, plots to drop the bottom on the diamond market. Enter the dashing superman named Dirk Pitt and the rest of the gang at the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) to save the day. A mysterious plague kills thousands of animals and humans and threatens to kill millions more. Throw in a kidnapping and a few decidedly unseaworthy boats and you've got the plot. Nothing in the tone or style of the book has changed from the original. The story takes readers from one adventure to another without pause for meaningful discussion of any character. Descriptions of lead characters are limited to two or three sentences about physical appearance. The plot and style are still technical and sophisticated enough to turn away most young adult readers-none of the language is truly "Adapted for Young Fans." Those who would pick up this title are better off taking the original book from the adult-fiction section.-Elaine Baran, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
