I would recommend picking up 'Inca Gold', or 'Flood Tide' as page turners for the sea faring, history-infused-with-action addicts. Any one of Cusslers books would be a good read though. You would be surprised at how much is packed into his novels, and how much of an enjoyment they are. He has written in the ballpark of 33 books to choose from as well.
