Odessa Sea opening line: White lights danced on the horizon like beacons of death.
It is quite clear that revenge is the deadliest weapon of them all. Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino are minding their own business, helping an archaeologist with some findings when they stumble into a series of crimes. Ever the helpful, these two find themselves close to death when they are trapped inside a cave with no way out. And while they are fighting for their lives, Summer and Dirk Jnr are facing their own problems. Unbeknown to father and son, their adventures have one person in common.
As Director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, Dirk Pitt has always had a knack for finding rouble. This time, though, trouble has found him…
On a NUMA mission to the Black Sea to locate the wreck of a lost Ottoman Empire ship, Pitt and his friend Al Giordino respond to an urgent Mayday from a nearby freighter.
But by the time they reach the area there’s no one left alive – just dead bodies and the smell of sulphur in the air. When a massive blast from the stern suddenly scuttles the ship, Pitt and Giordino are lucky not to add to the death toll.
As they investigate the fate of the lost ship, they’re plunged deep into an extraordinary series of discoveries.
And when connections emerge between a desperate attempt in 1917 o preserve the wealth and power of the Romanov empire, a Cold War bomber lost with a deadly cargo, modern-day nuclear smugglers and a brilliant engineer developing cutting-edge drone technology, Pitt is face with the most dangerous challenge of his career. One that will threaten the lives of his family and friends.
Packed with breath taking suspense, switchback plotting and remarkable imagination, Odessa Sea proves once again that, when it comes to adventure, Clive Cussler is in a league of his own
With each Clive Cussler book I learn some interesting facts. And some historical tit bits along the way. The book held my interest from page one. Another read I can recommend.
