Those of you who spend nights away “on business” will know that after a hard day on the road you’re usually too knackered to do anything.

This week Belfast’s bright city lights held no attraction, so I nipped out in the storm bought a Muller Light yoghurt and this book to keep me company.

Fifty pence for a yogurt and £4 for a paperback can’t be bad. Once I’d scraped every ounce of flavour from the plastic pot I dived into “Pirate” by Clive Cussler.

I knew of him, but this was my first experience of his work.

Two nights later I’ve polished off the 400 page thriller.

Was it any good? Yes, I suppose so.

Would I rush to buy another Cussler book?

Possibly not.

The lead couple are “Treasure Hunters” who are perpetually moments away from being shot, stabbed or blown up.

The story line is so high octane it makes a James Bond story sound plausible.

Snowgood SCORE: 4 Stars
