Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Clive Cussler's dark adventure, Trojan Odyssey, part of the thrilling Dirk Pitt series. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.

Dirk Pitt battles his most dangerous foe ever - with help from a very unexpected source.

There is a black tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua. Whilst trying to determine its origin, startling things begin to occur and the inhabitants of a floating resort find themselves directly in the path of a violent storm. Dirk and the NUMA crew rush to their rescue, but they discover that there is an all-too-human evil at work and the black tide is only a by-product of its plan. Soon its work will be complete - and the world will be a very different place....

Another gripping Pitt adventure

The historical references alone give rise to interest, but as ever Cussler maintains the pace to keep you enthralled.
The dubbing effects of the audible not too great on this story though. A background hiss and sudden breaks.
A small negative to an outstanding listen.

Great story, shocking editing

A great story from Cussler as always, but this sounds like it was recorded in a busy office, not anything resembling a voice over booth. the background noise is very distracting at times, and the lazy editing has the lady sentence of one chapter running into the title of the next.

Good story but a little long

I really enjoy Clive Cussler stories but this one did go on a little longer than it needed to (IMO). Also the audio chapters are out of synch from the chapters in the app making it hard to keep track of your progress.

Weird recording

The volume of the recording will randomly change. The editing is odd sometimes like someone forgot to pause between a chapter end and the next chapter. It’s incredibly off putting and I would have given up if not for the story. To be honest it’s not one of cusslers best, but it has a lot of overarching series story.
I’d recommend actually reading this and not buying the audiobook.

Action packed but believable

Classic action. This is like the Matthew Reilly or Andy McDerrmott you can listen to in front of the kids. Same action packed story lines mixing history, fiction, fact and myths but without the bloody battle descriptions and four letter words. This is a mix of a "today" story line full of techno wizardry and villans; but combined with the classic Greek myths that actually makes the Greek myths sound more believable than Homer did. I could never understand how Odysseus could get lost in the Meditterranean Sea for years....until now
