Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 14th incredible Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler. 

Tracking a notorious Chinese smuggler's activities leads Dirk Pitt from Washington State to Louisiana, where his quarry is constructing a huge shipping port in the middle of nowhere. Why has he chosen this unlikely location? 

The trail then leads to the race to find the site of the mysterious sinking of the ship that Chiang Kai-shek filled with treasure when he fled China in 1949, including the legendary boxes containing the bones of Peking Man that had vanished at the beginning of World War I. As Pitt prepares for a final showdown, he is faced with the most formidable foe he has ever encountered....

easy listening

good story and performance although rather predictable plot, that's all I wanted to say but it insists on 7 more words.

Brick is Brilliant!

Great story, Dirk is full of fun and Al as well. Loved hearing the Oregon story. Please get the other dozen or so books on audible as soon as possible.

What a FABULOUS book - Clive Cussler at his BEST!

Scott Brick was absolutely at the top of his performance! Adventure after adventure - WOW! I love Clive’s little performance - really clever! His mind is an ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT! How can one human being imagine all the tales? He is certainly ONE OF A KIND!

I was a bit confused, but then, it’s a re release

Juan Cabrillo is in this one too, and he had both legs....for a while. A 486 computer was dating it so now I knew something was up. Looking back it I found out it was first released 9-97. That being said it was a very good listen, just think prequel if you didn’t read it before and you’ll be fine.

Not a new book

This book popped up on Audible as a 2019 book. It’s not it was originally published in 1997. As long as you know that then it’s a fairly entertaining book. If you’ve been keeping up with the Dirk Pitt series alot of the things that you know now are kind of confusing until you realize that this book was written in the past.

Abdolutely one of the very best!

Loved every minute of this one and especially how Pitt comes to meet the early crew of The Oregon and that early history of the first one. So well written and it ended all too soon for me! I have read so many of the different series, but this will remain my favorite all time story.

Excellent

Needless to say that Scott Brick was outstanding! The story was unique and broken into several parts! In the end all stories came full circle and the end brought the begin!
This has to be the best of the 14 Dirk Pitt books!
Thanks for a Story well written and well narrated!
