Thoughts: After reading the first and third in this series I was excited to read this one. I was also very glad to see that each story was going to be a new original story and not using characters from well-known books written by the authors.
I quite enjoyed Clive Cussler’s commentary it was interesting and didn’t drag out. It told me a little bit of background that I found quite interesting.
The stories were a mixture of great and not so great. I did enjoy the large majority of the stories and some of them were so good. There were quite a lot that had me hanging on to every word and I could picture them in my mind really well.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading the Thriller 2 anthology and thought it was worth a read.
