Publisher's Summary

“Dirk Pitt is oceanography’s answer to Indiana Jones,” praises the Associated Press. “Exotic locations, ruthless villains and many narrow escapes - Cussler’s fans come for swashbuckling [and] he delivers.”

And now the Cusslers bring us Pitt’s most dangerous adventure of all.

It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation’s naval arsenal even comes close. 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 itself disappeared in 1943, lost at sea? Or was she?

It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt’s children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth, from Washington to Mexico, Idaho to Panama. What they discover at the end of it is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined. If they don’t succeed in their mission, the world as they know it might end up a very different place - and not a pleasant one.

Filled with breathtaking suspense and extraordinary imagination, Poseidon’s Arrow is further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.

    Story
    "China: America's Newest Cold War Foe"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The whole concept of the book revolves around America's increasing dependence upon the use of rare earth metals in critical industries, especially the military. This book story line suggests a way that such dependence can be manipulated by the Chinese.

    Dirk and friends as always save the day. But I have to say that much of the male-female sexual tension found in the earlier books is now absent since Dirk is married. More fun to have the hero be a single guy who can get the girl.

    Or at least try.

    We can all dream.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick has a great voice and uses that voice masterfully in his narration. I am rarely disappointed and was not here. Well done Scott.


    Any additional comments?

    Whenever I want a rollicking romp with the hero traipsing around the world saving damsels in distress and the world at the same time, I pick up a Clive Cussler book. Poseidon's Arrow fills the bill well and is a true pleasure to read.

    "Great Book"

    Another great book from Clive Cussler. Here is an author who proves you can write an action book without profanity. Keep up the good work. I can't wait until the next book.

    Story
    "Dirk does it again"
    Where does Poseidon's Arrow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It fits well into the top level of audiobooks I have listened to. The story was entertaining and enjoyable throughout the entire length.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were several times during the story some of the background became too noise. But overall the story keep me interested and listening. I really never felt my thoughts wonder as has happen when listening to other books


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, in fact I work 12 hour shifts and couldn't wait to get my headphones in just so I could find out what would happen next.

    "A bit too unbelievable"
    What did you like best about Poseidon's Arrow? What did you like least?

    Good idea behind the story, too much of Hollywood style action hero totally unrealistic


    What could Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Keep the good plot but write it for adults rather than teenagers


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Perhaps


    Was Poseidon's Arrow worth the listening time?

    Any book is


    Any additional comments?

    Great movie material to rival James Bond

    "It's a good one. Worth the listen!"

    It's absolutely quintessential Clive Cussler, which, if you've gotten this far, you're in the mind to enjoy, and this will satisfy you and make you smile as you listen. A deffinite listen for Cussler fans.

    Its Dirk Pitt and its Clive Cussler. Need I say more? If you love Dirk you are going to listen to it, if not you're not.

    "Never disappointed!"

    I don't think I've ever come across a bad Dirk Pitt novel. Always non stop action packed. Always twined together to make sure there are some good twists and turns. The characters are awesome. Can't say enough good about this series.

    "Cussler standard"
    Where does Poseidon's Arrow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a standard Pitt adventure, nothing really new. So it is no letdown but no surprise either.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Poseidon's Arrow?

    Nothing to highlight.
