DIRK PITT’S FIRST, MOST TERRIFYING ADVENTURE! Dirk Pitt, death-defying adventurer and deep-sea expert, is put to the ultimate test as he plunges into the perilous waters of the Pacific Vortex—a fog-shrouded area where dozens of ships have vanished without a trace. The latest victim is the awesome supersub Starbuck, bearing America’s deep-diving nuclear arsenal. Its loss poses an unthinkable threat to national defense. Pitt’s job is to find it and salvage it before international forces beat him to the prize or the sea explodes in a nuclear blast—whichever comes first. Pitt’s mission also leads him into the arms of Summer Moran, the most stunningly exotic and dangerous woman ever to enter his life. As the countdown heads toward disaster, Pitt has no choice but to descend through the shark-infested depths to an ancient sunken island, from which he may never again emerge to see the light of day.

In the foreword, Clive Cussler mentioned that he created Dirk Pitt to be a character in the vein of James Bond, and he certainly brings that to mind. Not in the most flattering way for me though. He reminds of the aspects of the Bond films from the 60s-80s I did not like. The casual disregard for ...

Actually, I have no memory of this one. Shall have to reread. Requested from SPL.5-30-13 Oh wow, I am really glad Mr. Cussler got past his really horrendous sexism (more than that...his disgraceful attitude toward women) evident here. Mostly past it, anyway.6-8-13 Aaaagh. So many things bother...

The first Dirk Pitt story (although it was't the first one published). A very quick read, the story moves on nicely. Pitt's an interesting character (I fell for him after reading Raise the Titanic - broke my cardinal rule by reading something out of sequence).This first story deals with the disapp...
