A ghost ship drifts across the northern Pacific....

A Soviet luxury liner burns like a funeral pyre....

And the U.S. President's yacht is heading for disaster....

Somewhere off the coast of Alaska, a sunken cargo poses a threat of unthinkable proportions. Potentially, the lost shipment of chemicals could destroy all life in the ocean — and perhaps the world — unless DIRK PITT® can find it first. But time is running out for the NUMA agent and his team. Pitt's main target is just one deadly component of a vast international conspiracy fueled by hijacking, bribery, and murder. And at the center of it all is a powerful Korean shipping empire with a chilling political agenda — to kidnap the President of the United States....

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1984, Deep Six is now available in a new edition.

A deadly tide of poison flows into ocean waters. A ghost ship drifts across the empty northern Pacific. A luxury Soviet liner blazes into a funeral pyre. The Presidential yacht cruises the Potomac night—and the President disappears without a trace.

Dirk Pitt takes on a sinister Asian shipping empire in an intercontinental duel of nerves. In his most dangerous, fast-paced adventure, he fights to save the US government—and to seize one desperate moment of revenge!

Synopsis:

This classic by the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Sahara," the basis of the blockbuster 2005 film starring Matthew McConaughey as adventurer Dirk Pitt, is now available in Pocket's Premium Edition (4 1/2 x 7 1/2 trim) for a new legion of fans. Reissue.

About the Author

Clive Cussler is acclaimed worldwide as the Grandmaster of Adventure. He got his start in advertising, first as an award-winning copy writer, and then as creative director for two of the nation's largest agencies. His initial foray into fiction was in 1973, when he wrote his first Dirk Pitt® novel.

Since then he has continued to write Dirk Pitt® adventures while living a life that nearly parallels that of his action hero. Like Pitt, Cussler enjoys discovering and collecting things of historical significance. With NUMA (National Underwater & Marine Agency, a non profit group begun by Cussler) he has had an amazing record of finding over 60 shipwrecks, one of which was the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley. Cussler also has a renowned and extensive classic car collection, which features over 80 examples of custom coachwork.

Along with being Chairman of NUMA, he is also a fellow of the Explorers Club (which honored him with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration), the Royal Geographical Society and the American Society of Oceanographers. Married to Barbara Knight for 40 years, with three children and two grandchildren, he divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.

Katie Walker, January 3, 2011 (view all comments by Katie Walker)
Let me start by saying that I liked Deep Six, but it was the most preposterous story ever. Most action/adventure stories ask for you to suspend your disbelief, but this one was beyond. The whole book centered on a plot by a Korean family and the Soviet government to kidnap the President of the United States and brainwash him to favor pro-Soviet policy. During the kidnapping the Vice President, Speaker of the House and President of the Senate are also captured. With the first four men in the line of succession missing, a massive cover up was undertaken to keep world from finding out the US's security failure and to recover the missing leadership.

I spent a lot of time going "yay right" while reading, but I still liked the book. I just wish it would have been more believable.
