Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 10th action-packed thriller in the classic Dirk Pitt series, where the adventurer must foil the deadly conspiracy of a group of Japanese nationalist fanatics. 

Buried in the depths of the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Japan, lies one of the greatest drowned secrets of World War Two - a crashed B-29 bomber that was carrying a third atomic bomb to Japan in 1945.

Its deadly cargo, lost in the sea for nearly 50 years, is at the heart of this classic Dirk Pitt thriller, in which a small group of Japanese nationalist fanatics, dreaming of a new Nipponese Empire, set out to neutralise and blackmail the USA - with nuclear weapons planted strategically in the country's major cities....

What a crazy world it would be if this was real!

It was a great listen! Lots of action and great tech too. I have to say that Pit and Jordino get into way to much trouble. It makes life interesting thou!

Superb Book and Astonishingly skillful reading by Master-voice Scott

A magical and thrilling account of intrigue, vivid descriptions an deeply-textured characters.

One of the very best suspense books ever!

Send, "The Delta Forces!"

The Delta Forces? Delta Force? or just “Delta?” Maybe?
Robot dogs? And consecrated robots? What? Consecrated?

The plot in this story is ridiculous. The science is not even believable science fiction. The writing is mediocre. Tons of exposition is given as dialog, like Clive was writing this to be a script.

Gems:
“A new robodog is currently being reprogrammed.” :/
“Sorry I’m late, but I had to take a dog to obedience school.”

This was a truly tiresome experience.

I liked this one very much..

This is not a racist book,,,in truth it reflects how many Japanese feel about the west, especially America.
This is a Fiction story,,BUT you have to ask yourself, could this happen???? and how would our week president Joe biden reactr???

My Thoughts.

I use to read the Dirt Pitt books with great relish back in the day when the year began with a 19 in front of it. Over time I lost interest in them, but I noticed them here in Audible and thought I should reacquaint myself. Never noticed that the books had a writing style reminiscent of the old dime store novels with the hero being a steely-eyed macho man. Oh, well. The major thing that bothered me is the incessant Japanese bashing going on in the book. That seriously turned me off. Changing times, I guess.

Been worth the very long wait

This book has been worthy the very long wait , after finishing the Dirk Pitt series a while back I’ve been waiting on several of the books to become available, this one, 11 & 12 in September, and no sign of books 15 & 16 which is a complete shame as I would love the complete set. Same goes with the Numa Files I would love the missing books from that series as well, it bugging missing out on stories especially when they get referred to in other books.

This book however was one of my favourite Dirk Pitt adventures. It was full of everything that has made this series great. Clive Cussler is one of my all time favourite authors, and I have had many hours of enjoyment listening to his epic adventures.

Dumb, over the top, pure fun.

Dragon is ridiculous, politically dated, and problematic.

It's also memorable, exiting, badass and epic.

IMHO this is the purest Dirk Pitt adventure.

A story in witch the main protagonist is rigth.

I can only conclude, in The ligth of time, that The "bad guy" is absolutely rigth about the degeneration of the USA and Europé. As with the movie "blue thunder" i can only conclude, in hindsigth, that The good guys is on the Wrong Side.

Gigantic story

Clive Cussler has written a fast-moving, story like all his books with frantic villains, and Gigantic heroes who take on the villans with murderous intent to the world.
