'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail
The thrilling first Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.
Fully armed and with all hands on board, the nuclear submarine Starbuck sailed into the calm Pacific Ocean for sea trials - and vanished. No wreckage, no signals, no survivors: nothing . . . until ace maritime troubleshooter Dirk Pitt finds a single, chilling clue in the shark-torn surf off Hawaii - the log of the Starbuck.
'Do not search for us, it can only end in vain . . . ' A crazed journal of madness and death is all that remains. And the Captain's final, scrawled, fear-crazed note locates the Starbuck's grave hundreds of miles from her last known position! The search for the Starbuck plunges Dirk Pitt into his most shattering assignment to date - a whirlpool of deep-sea mystery and terror - the Pacific Vortex!

Another Clive cussler well written book, thoroughly enjoy this gentlemans writing, now reading his earlier books, so many to go through, good job he publishes twice a year, my favourite airplane reading, especially on long haul flights
Book Great, Apple Books Implementation Not
Come on guys, let’s get a Dirk Pitt Series in place so that it properly groups them in Apple Books!!!!
Sexist and awful dialogue
I enjoyed the unlikely plot, but the style - especially the dialogue - is really stilted. And for a book written in 2009, it is astonishing how the female characters are portrayed and interact with the male characters.
