It pays for a top writer to want to research everything for his books, before releasing it into the wild. Also with Crescent Dawn, the latest Dirk Pitt novel. I found some Engrish (or is that Dutchlish) in the book.
Without too many spoilers, it's what is written on page 459 in the paperback. Uhm, the Dutch for Power is "Macht", but that's wrongly used here. The "Macht" used means power, as in the government. The Powers that be, or 2 to the Power of.. such a thing.
You'd want to use things like "Aan" (On) or "Energie" (energy), while the best one is "Vermogen" (power).
Perhaps something for the second print.

And what exactly does it pay? I'm pretty sure the check is already in the mail whether this nit is picked or not.
