For generations, treasure hunters have tried to unlock the deadly puzzle known as the Water Pit: a labyrinth of shafts and tunnels that honeycombs the heart of a small island off the coast of Maine. Reputed to be the hiding place of pirate treasure, the Water Pit possesses an inexplicable ability to kill those who venture into it, from professionals to innocent explorers. The most comprehensive, high-tech expedition ever assembled has come to Maine and to Dr. Malin Hatch, owner of the island. While the treasure hunters have their reasons for mounting this assault - $2 billion in gold - Hatch has his own motives to join them. For Hatch, whose brother died on Ragged Island thirty years before, the only escape from the curse is through the black swirling waters and bloodstained chambers of the Pit.

Last week I read “The Cabinet of Curiosities”. Nothing I’d recommend even to my worst enemy. That book’s as much literary quality as David Hasselhoff’s as an actor.

Anyway, looking at my bookshelf, I saw that I’d three more books from the duo Preston/Child that I hadn’t read. Three! Can you believe that? Three whole books. So, as I am a bit stubborn, I picked “Riptide” up and slowly, very slowly, I started reading it. In my world, after “The Cabinet of Curiosities” the chapter Preston/Child was closed, but amazingly, “Riptide” had a completely different pace and the writing was a lot more… yeah, mature.
Being fair I think “Riptide” is a good mystery/adventure book until the last 100 pages. It kept me turning the pages and even if it isn’t a superb read, it was a book that didn’t insult my intelligence (by the way… I consider myself being a normal person) every 5 minutes.
I don’t think that I am going to read the other two books that I’ve left to read, which are “The Ice Limit” and “Still Life with Crows”, so feel free to email me if you’re a fan and maybe we can work something out.
I think that when you constantly read books you become, not aware of it, a bit demanding. I think that every time you read a great/superb book ― whether it is a crime novel such as “Mystic River”, “Gorky Park” or “A Small Dead in Lisbon”; or more classic literature such as “Dracula” or “One Hundred Years of Solitude” ― you open a door that’s very hard to close. Sometimes I feel like I just want to read a book for fun, but even then, I don’t want to read such crap as “The Cabinet of Curiosities”, “Reliquary” or “The Righteous Men”. The line for me goes very near this book. A book that is entertaining although like I said before, the last 100 pages are a bit boring because the action was predictable and the mystery behind the sword was a big joke.
