Publisher Description

Dirk Pitt—“oceanography’s answer to Indiana Jones”*—responds to a Mayday signal from a deserted ship and gets drawn towards a deadly Cold War secret in this thriller in Clive Cussler’s #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
Dirk Pitt, the director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, is on the Black Sea, helping to locate a lost Ottoman shipwreck, when he responds to an urgent Mayday—“Under attack!”—from a nearby freighter. But when he and his colleague Al Giordino arrive, there is nobody there. Just dead bodies and a smell of sulfur in the air. As Pitt and Giordino explore, a blast from the stern scuttles the ship swiftly, almost taking them with it. 

The more the two of them search for the secret of the death ship, the deeper they descend into an extraordinary series of discoveries. A desperate attempt in 1917 to preserve the wealth and power of the Romanov Empire. A Cold War bomber lost with a deadly cargo. A brilliant developer of advanced drone technology on an unknown mission. Modern-day nuclear smugglers, determined Ukrainian rebels, a beautiful anti-terrorism agent from Europol—all will combine to present Pitt with the most dangerous challenge of his career.

And not only Pitt. His two children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are exploring a mysterious shipwreck of their own, when they are catapulted into his orbit. The three of them are used to perilous situations—but this time, they may have found their match.

Enjoyed the reading very much. Able to keep up with all the different stories. As usual wish I could have been there with all of them. Thank you for the adventure.

Odessa Sea

Another "on the edge of your seat" Pitt adventure by Clive Cussler. The merging of Pitt and his kids' separate escapades brilliantly flowed through the pages. Mixing fiction and nonfiction is motivating to learn more about the brief history lessons mentioned. Oceanography facts are very interesting. Keep the Pitt adventures coming!

Another hit for Clive

If purchasing an EBook, be careful. The last few pages of many of the chapters are missing. Like many of his books, it should be put on the big screen.
