Over the years Dirk Pitt has always had a knack for finding trouble. This time it has found him.
The extraordinary new novel from the grand master of adventure and number-one New York Times best-selling author.
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, a smell of sulfur in the air, and, as Pitt and Giordino explore, a blast from the stern that 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 antiterrorism 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.
Filled with breathtaking suspense and remarkable imagination, Odessa Sea is further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.

I love having Pitt and Giordano in the midst of the action and a secondary action line with Dirk Jr., Summer & Perlmutter. And Cussler is always timely with a setting involving Russia and the Ukraine. Couldn't stop listening!!
this book was okay the story was classic Clive Cussler. I like the fact that they added other parts of the eastern seaboard to the mix I haven't heard that in nne of the car Cussler books before even though they spend a lot of time near DC
As with all Scott Brick read books this is an easy listen. This is typical of Cussler's fun yarns, good story and fun to escape to. I just have to call this one out on a most ridiculous and laughable scene/chapter that had me declaring out loud "No!!!!! He didn't do that!" Jumped the shark with this one.
This book reads like it was written by a first time author as the story was ALL over the place. Besides being too choppy, the plot and characters were extremely dull. Even the bits of history (which is what I listen to Cussler's books for) were dull. I started this thing over three times hoping it would improve but gave up and let it drone on and on in my ear until it finished. Even the narrator, who usually adds to these stories, wasn't helping any with his soft, slow, monotonous tone like you would read to a child you're trying to get to sleep.
