    One thought on “River Of Ruin”

    1. FANTASTIC!!! The first few books in the Philip Mercer series were excellent but this one proves du Brul has taken his place among the best techno-thriller authors out there. WELL worth the read, kept me turning pages way past my bedtime!

    2. River of Ruin presents an interesting question for the reader: Just when did Jack DuBrul write it? It's the fifth book featuring globetrotting mining engineer/geologist/tail-kicking adventurer Philip Mercer, released four years after DuBrul introduced Mercer to the world in Vulcan's Forge.Forge was a little ragged, a pretty obvious case of a novelist writing early in his career: A little too much exposition and some sore-thumb-style characterization and backstory. DuBrul's style smoothed out ove [...]

    3. Well i liked it, but i expected a little more from this book. There was a lot of fight with the Chinese( they were very annoying most of the time). But of course in the end the good guys won.I don't know what will happen with Mercer and Loren, but not always in a book there are answers to all the questions.Miguel has a new home and a loving family who will take care for him.So it was a good book, but not one of the greatest.

    4. Another really great adventure. I like that Harry was in the action again (right beside Mercer this time). Harry and Mercer's bond grows deeper while we get a lot more background on Mercer and his tragic experience as a boy. Very well done. This isn't just a fast paced and thrilling adventure story, it's a character driven mouthful of ear candy (does that make sense?). Anyway, I love this series. Du Brul has outdone himself once again.

    5. Very fun, endearing characters, twists that will make you wish you weren't just reading it for 30 minutes on your lunch break. Definitely worth a read.

    6. Primarily set in the jungles of Panama, a friend of Mercer’s is searching for a legend. Inca riches, referred to as the Twice-Stolen Treasure are purported to be buried in Panama. Mystery, intrigue, danger, and a beautiful woman all vie for Mercer’s attention. Mr. Du Brul weaves another spellbinding story, taking his readers on a realistic journey, which might have serious consequences for the United States if Mercer is unsuccessful in piecing the puzzle together and grabbing the prizes. How [...]

    7. Incan treasure and Chinese plots in Panama.After Mercer buys an obscure diary on the building of the Panama Canal in Paris, he is attacked. Upon escape, he flies to deliver it to a treasure hunter friend in Panama and ends up in the middle of a complicated Chinese plot to take over the Canal.I loved all the descriptions on how the Canal operates, but think Mercer did just as much damage so not sure what he accomplished.Fave scenes: the tunnel ball chase, car carrier chase, like falling off a bik [...]

    8. This book was okay, I enjoyed the action, however, as most action books the good guys always seem to do better then the expert military groups, where after the third impossible victory you are left with the feeling of “Right…. everybody is superman saving the day.” All in all, if you like action this book is still worth the read.As much as the author did a great job weaving the characters individual stories within the plot, and the constant action throughout the book, I was slightly disapp [...]

    9. I first encountered Jack du Brul’s work in one of the novels he co-wrote with Clive Cussler, but it is in his stand-alone novels that he really excels. Mercer is a perfect lead character and in Harry White he has a perfect foil. The first few books in the series are great, though with a heavy reliance on cold war themes they feel a bit dated now so it is really from Medusa Stone onwards it really hits its stride; with River of Ruin one of my top two.The story leverages the unique make-up of ea [...]

    10. Another entry in this author's Jack Du Brul PHILIP MERCER series. Fast paced and very entertaining, as were the others. Beyond all the explosions (blowing up the Panama Canal was interesting), there's the oddly sweet relationship between the protagonist and Harry, his 80 something friend. Already have a request on another book in the series. Not the next book.I started reading these out of order.

    11. The story kept my attention and I really liked the characters. I did have some trouble keeping track of things in the last 50 pages. It got too technical with descriptions of the Panama Canal's lock system and half the time, I couldn't picture what was going on. I didn't realize this was a series or I would have started with book one. I do plan on finding book one and giving it a try.

    12. Phillip Mercer is a geologist that seems to get into some strange situations. This one leads him to finding a rare journal in France which sends him to the Panama Canal to investigate a treasure. He ends up trying to stop a Chinese plot to control more of the world.Character development is pretty good as is the dialog.

    13. Good thriller, but tons of detail which slowed me down - I know know everything about the Panama Canal, including some on the building of it, the treaty, the number of locks, how high they are, the double doors, the intake valves, etc. But it had some great supporting characters, and so I enjoyed it, even if it took me four nights to finish.

    14. Philip Mercer is the new Dirk Pitt. A mining engineer with an action-packed past, a brain and good-looking(in that ruggedly handsome way). These books are a great easy read. Obviously written to a formula, but with some great research behind them abd some fantastic characterss a good way to spend an afternoon.

    15. This was agood read and I enjoyed it more than Pandora's Curse. A very plausible story about the Chinese trying to take control of the Panama Canal and trying to find lost treasure of the Incas to fund it. Nice to see Mercer's character developing and also seeing more of Harry involved in this one.

    16. This book started off good and really felt like a typical Clive Cussler book. I think maybe it was bout 100 pages too long and my interest started to wander at the end. The writer has talent, but he needs to find his own winning formulae.

    17. Another excellent Phillip Mercer adventure book from Jack DuBrul. If you like good adventure stories, I recommend reading all of Jack's books.

    18. Starting to lose its shine now. I like the series but it isn't making the effort of say the first two books. Seems to be a bit same-y.

    19. Mercer faces another thrilling adventure with Chinese assassins after him to find a rare diary and a stolen treasure & surviving the black waters of the River of Ruin. Another great read.

    20. Lots of adventure as part of the story involves a team trying to head-off an explosion and blocking of the canal. Good insight as we head of to the PC on Tuesday.

    21. The plot was a bit far-fetched, but I liked the introduction of the character of Lauren, and I felt like Mercer's character was better developed.
