    One thought on “Charon's Landing”

    1. This was a follow up to Du Brul's Vulcan's Forge. I enjoy Mercer's character and his relationship with Harry White. For someone that loves and gobbles up FBI, CIA, espionage, USA saving the day kind of books, this is right up my alley. I downloaded and started book #3 after turning the last page, so I apparently enjoy them!

    2. found this series because he ghost wrote fro another series i liked and have started following this series too. great writing and just enough twists and turns to keep you coming back for more!

    3. Warning: there are a couple of very disturbing scenes in this book that are not for the faint of heart. Especially if you’re an animal lover.For a geologist, Mercer is very knowledgeable in a lot of subject. Plus he’s a bit of a MacGyver.While this is a very exciting and complex story I wish there weren’t so many innocent people dying and other gruesome things. In detracts from my being able to dig in and enjoy the story.I’m falling in love with Mercer especially his house. Though he nee [...]

    4. Another cheap potboiler du Brul has apparently written to a formula. There are so many action scenes in this one, it makes the reader weary. How a geologist can survive that many attempts on his life, with bullets, blows and every other type of assault du Brul could imagine, is way beyond reality. The premise itself is so implausible it is almost laughable. And a SEAL team that would let him join them in an operation???du Brul, who has written for Cussler, uses the same old formula again: consta [...]

    5. An older book, we find a Russia with a vendetta against Mercer and a thirst to sabotage the US even though the cold war is over. Charon's Landing is a cold war era plan to destroy the Alaska Pipeline with modern elements added by the evil mind of Ivan Kerkikov. Mercer stumbles onto the plot after finding a fishing boat adrift in the seas around Alaska that had been burned. Enter pretty environmentalist Aggie Johnson and there is enough tension to cut with a knife. Big fight scenes, adventure and [...]

    6. i have really enjoyed other books in the Mercer series by Du Brul, but it really felt like the author mailed this one in. "Charon's Landing" is set up as a sequel to "Vulcan's Forge" (which was pretty good), with the return of the bad Russian and everything. however, the nature of the plot against America and humanity was so convoluted, i found it hard to get into the story. the addition of the gratuitous most-beautiful-woman-in-the-world, who happens to be an evil billionaire's daughter and imm [...]

    7. I probably should have stopped at the first Mercer story. But the second was right at my finger tips, and so I went ahead. But early on we get animal torture. We get Mercer, who drinks to excess all the time, yet is completely in control of his drinking. Then Du Brul sets up a straw man arguments and through Mercer goes on a "more righteous than thou" anti-environmental rant that would have been questionable in 1999 when the book was written and most certainly sound foolish with 17 years of furt [...]

    8. Philip Mercer, DuBrul's hero, returns to fight KGB assassin Ivan Kerilkov in this densely written but action-packed thriller. People double- and triple-cross each other in the convoluted plot. Mercer works with the US government, who want to open the Arctic Wildlife Refuge for offshore drilling, much to the consternation of eco-terrorist group PEAL.The book suffers from overkill (in some cases, literally). There are too many characters to realistically keep track of. The science is sound, to the [...]

    9. No matter how much money you have it can not buy you complete happiness. This is a story about how an geologist and an old adversary, a former KGB agent, whom he thought was out of his life for ever came back to haunt him in this latest adventure. The scene starts out with Mercer on a fishing trip with friends, who were showing him their new invention,the mini-mole, where it would dig its way through a mountain by programming the GPS.After the demonstration they went on a fishing trip where they [...]

    10. I read this on the recommendation that if I liked Clive Cussler I would like this series. Well, Mercer is definitely a clone of Pitt (simply substitute Geology for Oceanography), though not as likable or well-written. The story was standard adventure novel fare, but the self-indulgent writing style kept pulling me out of the story. I may read other books in this series, but they won’t be at the top of my list.Borrowed from a friend.

    11. This is the second Jack Du Brul book I've read and I'm feeling like Philip Mercer is a budget version of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt.That's not to say this book is bad, it's certainly not. It's just not particularly original in anyway - so if you're thinking it's going to be a ground breaking action novel you may just be disappointed but if you're after something that fills in the time in an entertaining way it's not a bad book to chose.

    12. It is definitly early Mercer (there were a fair number of typo's in the copy I read), he gets beat up alot but somehow manages to still win his battles, travel far and wide through Alaska to thwart a plot to distroy the pipeline, while assisting the derailing of a plot to overthrow one of the OPEC royal families. Good action and premis, just a bit thin in believability . . .

    13. As a Clive Cussler co-author. I expected a similar writing style but Du Bruls super hero Philip Mercer is so over the top that is distracts from the story. Also, Du brul makes numerous innacuracies in his discriptions of Alaska and maritime details. Very disappointed by this book. I won't read any more Du Brul books.

    14. This was my second attempt to read and enjoy a Du Brul book and it was as insuccessful as the fisrt one.This book was a very boring read for me.The story just didn't intrigue me at all.I jyst didn't want to sit down and read,which is very strange and rarely happens to me. In a nutshell-I'm not impressed and I'm not sure how long will it be,before I reach to a Du Brul book again.

    15. It is easy to see why Clive Cussler has chosen Jack Du Brul to coauthor his Oregon Files series of books, because his style of writing is very enjoyable and easy to read. This is my first foray into the Philip Mercer series of books and it did disappoint. If you like Cussler's books you will like Du Brul's.

    16. The second Phillip Mercer novel finds him trying to stop an environmental disaster as ex- KGB and environmentalist groups are trying to blow apart the Alaskan Pipeline. Mercer gets in the middle of it when he is the sole survivor of an ill fated fishing trip. Ok read

    17. Writing wise, this is pretty bottom-of-the-barrel; it gets nearly top marks for its convoluted, escapist, action-filled plot. It was completely ridiculous of course, and the love interest but was fully gratuitous, but hey, I was entertained. This isn't the best of Philip Mercer though.

    18. Every book does not have to be a literary masterpiece, action novels are probably better that way! I have never hoped for the unpleasant demise of an evil literary character as much as one here. My favourite part of the novel was that!

    19. Loved it! Lots of action - really liked Mercer and Aggie. I love being entertained when I read. This book kept my attention the whole way through. I especially like it when good wins out over evil. Even though evil keeps showing up

    20. Started a bit slow for the genre but enjoyed the book as it went along. I will be reading more Jack Du Brul.

    21. It wasn't QUITE as good as the last one. It took almost a third of the book for the story to really take off. Once it did, it was vintage Du Brul.
