Poseidon's Arrow: A Dirk Pitt Novel, Book 22 | [Clive Cussler, Dirk Cussler]

Poseidon's Arrow: A Dirk Pitt Novel, Book 22

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.

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.

    Would you listen to Poseidon's Arrow again? Why?

    Probably, Love Clive Cussler


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

    Interesting but not edge of seat thriller, but good Cussler


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Standard Scott Brick


    Any additional comments?

    Great to hear the old gang together. Need more original Dirk Pitt books.

    "Disappointed."
    What did you like best about Poseidon's Arrow? What did you like least?

    What I like best is always Dirk Pitt and his continuing adventures.

    What I like least is the story didn't live up to past Dirk Pitt storys.The characters were not very bright;as they have been in the past.Especially the main female character;who is supposed to be a professional,but is not much more than helpness damsel needing rescue.Also goverment agencies that are completely clueless.Dirk himself seems to be suffering{given past expierence} from some cluelessnes.Being easily out manuevered at almost every turn.I expected better,but still entertaining.

    I am a retired CPA and have always liked to relax with a good book of intrigue and mystery. Listening via Audible has made "reading" fun.

    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    As always, the best. No wonder he probably has more e-books than anyone else.


    Any additional comments?

    While it is fiction, the Panama Canal incidents were totally unbelievable!

    "Cuslers Idiots"

    I can't believe these characters continue to survive as stupid as they are. I could go on forever about the stupid things the main characters do that only would take common sense to overcome. Cusler must have written this one when he was high.
