Publisher's Summary

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.

Classic Pitt

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!!

Not his best work.

I'm usually so into these Clive Cussler novels, I don't stop until I finish. The problem with this novel is that it was both hard to follow the plot as well as , in some places, was just cliche. I found my self taking over two weeks to get through it. Bottom line...the overall story could have been much better.

Another great Cussler!

action-adventure, suspense

Never met a Cussler novel I didn't love, and this one is no exception! Two parallel plots, one with Dirk and associates, the other with Summer and Dirk the younger make for classic nail-biting suspense. The only tidbit that I'll tease with is the part where Dirk comes out of a black powder cloud with a cutlass in his teeth to face off with a villain!
Scott Brick always does Cussler proud!

I really didn't enjoy the narrator.

I was really looking forward to this book, but the narration ruined it for me. It was a struggle to finish. Disappointing.

Good book. Dragged a bit

Too many repetitive near misses. Bogged the story down. Good story overall. Just needs a few less bad guy escapes. Nice twist at end though.
