Summary

A Sunday Times best seller.

The suspenseful eighth Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.

Dirk Pitt doesn't go looking for adventure: it finds him easily enough. His chance witnessing of an airship disaster - which nearly kills him - and subsequent discovery of the gruesome fate of the crew sets in motion the most nail-biting chain of events of his career. The hijacking on a golf course of one of the world's most powerful leaders; an exotic but outrageous undercover operation in the Caribbean; the sinister intrigue of a secret power base on the moon...Pitt's considerable resources and guile are about to be tested to the limit.

But when he finds a trail leading towards a fabulous treasure hidden fathoms deep in the ocean, Pitt realises he is on to something very special indeed. 

For somewhere in the raging waters lies the legendary lost lady of El Dorado, the golden prize that had already lured thousands to their graves....

One of the best Pitt adventrures

Cyclops is three epic adventures in one book: the hunt for El Dorado treasure, a secret moon colony and a Soviet plan to take over Cuba. And it doesn't feel disjointed at all!

You can’t go wrong with a Dirk Pitt adventure.

You can’t go wrong with a Dirk Pitt adventure. This one is no exception, it pulls you in and takes you on a wild adventure ride. It’s fast paced, edge of your seat adventure and really well narrated by Scott Brick. A great Audible listen.

Always an adventure and we ride along.

I loved it. This books make you part of the adventure. I hate to think that I may some day run out of Clive Cussler books.

This Space Needs a Title

I very much enjoy reading stories with characters I've come to like and plots that are fun and surprising. Just when you thought the book was complete, there's another two hours to go. Even though the book is 30+ years old, the President pretty damn unhappy and almost killed our hero a few times. It could be 2020!

You can't lose...

with a Clive Cussler adventure. Pure entertainment. I'm glad Hollywood has only ruined one of his books.

again a novel from Cussler, eternal racist

when Cussler states that Soviet cosmonauts are chain smokers and alcoholics. that is again Cussler the racist taking.

Hubby hooked

My husband started driving over the road again and was getting bored in the long stretches. I went with him for a few weeks and began playing AUDIBLES for him. I had read quite a few of Clive Cusslers Dirk Pitt series and enjoyed them. I had 11 credits available and now we have finished our 2nd book available, Cyclops. When he said,c" Are we going to listen to the story this morning?", I knew he was hooked!
