Dirk Pitt, il direttore della numa, la società che si occupa del recupero di relitti dai fondali, è sul Mar Nero. Sta cercando di localizzare i resti di un’antica nave ottomana, quando è chiamato a rispondere a un messaggio di soccorso – «Siamo sotto attacco!» – da un vicino mercantile. Ma quando lui e il suo collega, Al Giordino, arrivano sul posto, non trovano nessuno: solo cadaveri e odore di zolfo. Mentre i due esplorano la nave, un’esplosione da poppa la fa rapidamente affondare, rischiando di trascinarli sul fondo. Più i due si addentrano nelle ricerche sulla barca della morte, più sprofondano in uno straordinario vortice di scoperte. E di segreti. Un tentativo disperato, nel 1917, di salvare il benessere e la potenza dell’Impero dei Romanov. Un bombardiere della guerra fredda scomparso con un carico letale. Un brillante sviluppatore di droni impegnato in una missione sconosciuta. Trafficanti odierni di tecnologie nucleari, ribelli ucraini disposti a tutto, una splendida agente dell’Europol: tutto contribuirà a rendere questa missione la più pericolosa della carriera di Dirk Pitt.

Sigh. I don't know. I love Pitt and Giordano, but I am not sure how much longer I can tolerate the lazy writing behind them. This book read like a giant circle-jerk between Cussler and and his son, Dirk. I think, in fact, that Dirk must have written separate chapters and as a result it was repetitio Leggi tutto
The first Clive Cussler novel I read was Raise the Titanic! when I was much younger. I have read a couple of his other books in years since then and I saw this book had a good rating (4+ stars on both Goodreads and Amazon) as well as some good reviews so I put a hold request in at my local library.
Twenty-fourth in the Dirk Pitt action thriller series and revolving around Dirk, the director of NUMA, an oceanographic research organization. My Take There's plenty of action what with all the diving the Pitts and Giordano do looking for shipwrecks (of all kinds), the hijackings, the terrorist acts t Leggi tutto
First of all, I want to say I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my favorite adventure novelist. Mr. Clive Cussler, I will miss your thrilling adventures and your stories and characters! Secondly, I had a lot of mixed feelings regarding this entry in the beloved Dirk Pitt Series, one reas Leggi tutto

2.5. Probably not the best in the series as it is book 24.
This latest book in the Dirk Pitt series starts off with not one, but two short historical vignettes related to Russia and the Black Sea. Dirk Pitt and crew are minding their own business when they become involved with a pair of Europol police on the hunt for arms smugglers, which leads to a conspira Leggi tutto
Afraid the narration and the comfortable predictability of a Dirk Pitt novel caused me to drift away from the plot on occaision. a Bit of a twist for the villains at the end, though.

I have read a lot of Mr. Cusslers books but this just didn't provide the spark. You have two story lines going on and neither of them have to do with the other. Plus all the jumping back and forth is tough to follow. I didn't really like that The action don't start till the end either. Hopefully his Leggi tutto
#24 in a very enjoyable and entertaining series! If like Dirk Pitt and the characters of NUMA, you will enjoy this book!
