    Book Review: “The Gray Ghost” by Clive Cussler and Robin Burcell

    “The Gray Ghost” is a terrific read with Sam and Remi travelling the world in search of the car thieves while extricating themselves, and others, from danger. The story bounces between 1906 (via multiple journals written by Jonathon Payton, the 5th Viscount of Wellswick) and today. The action is fast, furious, and fun. Loved it. :-)
