Trojan Odyssey: A Dirk Pitt Novel (Dirk Pitt Adventures) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

In the final pages of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he had never known — twenty-three-year-old fraternal twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer, is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a marine engineer. And now they are about to help their father in the adventure of a lifetime.

There is a brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua. The twins are working in a NUMA underwater enclosure, trying to determine its origin, when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient; and the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight not only for them but also for a luxurious floating resort hotel square in its path.

The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable, and, desperately, Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA crew rush to the rescue, but what they find in the storm's wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and the brown tide is only a by-product of its plan. Soon, its work will be complete — and the world will be a very different place.

Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place...

Filled with breathtaking action and suspense, Trojan Odyssey is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.

Review:

"Clive the Mighty has found a formula for his terrific escapist plots and sees no reason to alter it....Hurricane Clive at his most tumultuous." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"This 17th Dirk Pitt extravaganza finds Cussler...and his entourage of paint-by-number characters in fine fettle....The action never flags, the heroics never halt and the bodies pile up as Pitt and Co. take on the villains..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Everything is done in shorthand, from the disaster-movie-plot setup to the characters and dialogue....[O]ffers precisely what readers have come to expect from a Dirk Pitt adventure: danger, heroics, villains, heroes." David Pitt, Booklist

Synopsis:

The latest NUMA adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author finds Dirk Pitt facing his most dangerous foe yet...and getting help from an unexpected source.

Synopsis:

It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades—an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing—and the man who developed it is dead.

At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard…burned to a crisp. What is going on? And what does it have to do with an Italian submarine that vanished in 1943? Or did it?

It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitts children, Dirk, Jr., and Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth. But what they discover is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined…
