Pacific Vortex! Publisher's Summary
A Sunday Times best seller
The thrilling first Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.
Fully armed and with all hands onboard, the nuclear submarine Starbuck sailed into the calm Pacific Ocean for sea trials - and vanished. No wreckage, no signals, no survivors: nothing...until ace maritime troubleshooter Dirk Pitt finds a single chilling clue in the shark-torn surf off Hawaii - the log of the Starbuck.
'Do not search for us, it can only end in vain....'
A crazed journal of madness and death is all that remains. And the captain's final scrawled, fear-crazed note locates the Starbuck's grave hundreds of miles from her last known position! The search for the Starbuck plunges Dirk Pitt into his most shattering assignment to date - a whirlpool of deep-sea mystery and terror - the Pacific Vortex!
