Summary

 A Sunday Times best seller 

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

For the President of the United States, the crisis point is approaching fast. With his new Soviet initiative entering its most crucial phase, the President suddenly finds himself faced with a pollution disaster of potentially cataclysmic proportions. And then - incredibly - he vanishes into thin air, leaving his country poised on the brink of chaos.

It's left to troubleshooter extraordinaire Dirk Pitt to hotwire the connections between these two shattering events. From the icy Alaskan waters to a Korean shipbreaker's yard; from a Caribbean shipwreck to a blazing inferno in the Mississippi Delta, he tracks down a conspiracy so fiendish and sophisticated that even the superpowers are helpless in its grip....

Great Book

If your a Clive Cussler fan this book is great. Dirk Pitt adventures are awesome. This is not the first book in the series but you can pick up here if you haven’t read any of the others.

Classic Clive

Great story involving "the original Dirk Pitt." I realize it was written 36 years ago but in many ways it was easier to create and write "bad guys" and their demise when the world didn't have as many touchy, feely sentimentalities! You want escapist fun where the enemy gets his due? Early Pitt is for you!

Great Old Thriller... more language than the newer Cussler books

Great Old Thriller... more language than the newer Cussler books.

Rated 4 stars because it’s one I won’t recommend due to the language. I wanted to give it 3 but the story was really compelling.

Scott Brick brings his narrations to life! Always 5 star performances.

Insert Title Here

There is a plot to take over the US Government and Dirk Pitt must save the day. An international corporation and USSR are the bad guys and the plots run together. Dirk saves the world. The way Pitt disposed of the villain wasn't typical -- that makes for intriguing listening.

Great except for too much profanity!!!

My family has enjoyed This author’s books especially because of the lack of profanity and vulgarity . But if this problem recurs in future books my entire family and many of my friends will no longer purchase this author’s work
