On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman’s brutalized body falls from the trunk of a car into the path of oncoming traffic. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe. Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is but who in her life hated her enough to destroy her. Was it personal? Or could it just have been a crime of opportunity?

Banker Katie James has a serious thing for romance novels. She’d almost rather settle for a fictional boyfriend than risk her heart on a flesh-and-blood man. Besides, the only real guy she’s remotely interested in is her rich, unattainable client, the mysterious Cooper Maxwell. Cooper crashes Katie’s 29th birthday party and one too many drinks lands Katie in uncharted territory...Cooper’s bedroom! Katie dives headfirst into the relationship only to discover that Cooper is keeping secrets...dangerous ones.

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.

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

yes, good plot, good writing style with good narration

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

yes and no, with Clive Cussler syle of writing you know who the "Bad" guy is, but, I like the way he blends in the other storyline

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

brings characters to life with using different voice tones

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Cusslers Dirk books are like an American 007. Wuold use espinoge as tag line
