Over the years, Dirk Pitt has always had a knack for finding trouble. This time, it has found him. The extraordinary new novel from the grand master of adventure and #1 New York Times-bestselling author. Pitt, the director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, is on the Black Sea, helping to locate a lost Ottoman shipwreck, when he responds to an urgent Mayday--"Under attack!"-- from a nearby freighter. But when he and his colleague Al Giordino arrive, there is nobody there. Just dead bodies, a smell of sulfur in the air, and, as Pitt and Giordino explore, a blast from the stern that scuttles the ship swiftly, almost taking them with it. The more the two of them search for the secret of the death ship, the deeper they descend into an extraordinary series of discoveries. A desperate attempt in 1917 to preserve the wealth and power of the Romanov Empire. A Cold War bomber lost with a deadly cargo. A brilliant developer of advanced drone technology on an unknown mission. Modern-day nuclear smugglers, determined Ukrainian rebels, a beautiful anti-terrorism agent from Europol--all will combine to present Pitt with the most dangerous challenge of his career. And not only Pitt. His two children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are exploring a mysterious shipwreck of their own, when they are catapulted into his orbit. The three of them are used to perilous situations--but this time, they may have found their match

My first Clive Cussler book and likely my last. It's like a Nicholas Cage movie, goes on for far too long. One impossible disaster after another and the good guys always come out on top. Confusing mix of characters. Seems like he's trying to bring five stories under one roof. Would have helped a lot if maps would have been included to aid the story line. Pass me another beer.

Usual Clive Cussler fare. Lost of action, constant and creative challenges, improbable rescues and solution, and just fun reading. I wish he would have a short blurb at the end of each book that describes the degree of historical fact in the stories that he always starts with. I assume there is some in most of them. In this case, I will say that two, modern US Navy warships are mentioned in this book are actual ships. If you like pure, not overly challenging, thriller writing for entertainment, this is a good one.

This would have been better if it were a hundred pages shorter.
