Poseidon's Arrow

by Clive Cussler, Dirk Cussler

Penguin Publishing Group | November 5, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Poseidon's Arrow is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades—an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing—and the man who developed it is dead.

At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard…burned to a crisp. What is going on? And what does it have to do with an Italian submarine that vanished in 1943? Or did it?

It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt’s children, Dirk, Jr., and Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth. But what they discover is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined…

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captivating Book # 22 in the Dirk Pitt series The plot detail is from Wikipedia, short and precise I couldn’t have said it better, although I did take the time and liberty to complement it with my own thoughts. “This book is about a secret prototype attack submarine the United States is developing and the efforts of a ruthless multimillionaire who wants to seize it by any means and sell it for a hefty profit. This millionaire antagonist also is bent on monopolizing most of the world’s rare earth mineral mining operations and sells these minerals for a huge profit. This novel has many subplots and is set in a variety setting throughout the world. These subplots involve many characters, as well. This adventure takes the NUMA group on a wild trip and opens in the usual format with a prologue setting the stage this time in the Indian Ocean in October 1943. Then the setting shifts to the present day near a mining facility in the Majave Desert where we meet the villains and the succeeding chapters could only leave us breathless as the many characters drifts in and out of the story, each time with abysmal intensity.” This thriller is an action packed tale of international intrigue, old fashion adventure, is very intense and hard to put down. Once again the father and son team bring their fictional duo and the NUMA team in a rip-roaring, globe-spanning adventure I enjoyed quite a bit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lengthy... Interesting story about Panama Canal and shipping, but main character has gone through so much it just do not seem possible to make it through another day.
