The Devil’s Sea, Dirk Cussler

The Devil’s Sea opening line: The Pratt & Whitney radial engines rasped and hunted as they struggled to inhale the high-altitude air.

The Devil's Sea

My blurb:

Summer and Dirk Pitt are about to go on the adventure of their lives. From saving people from devastation, to saving a long lost relic. But all of that is minor compared to what their father is going through. Will Dirk Pitt Senior survive against all odds?

The Devil’s Sea
In 1959 Tibet, an important Buddhist artefact was seemingly lost in the Communist takeover. But when Dirk Pitt discovers a forgotten crash site, new clues emerge.
But Pitt has larger worries: he must recover a failed hypersonic missile before it’s found by a Chinese adversary, who has hijacked a ship capable of stirring the ocean into a veritable Devil’s Sea.
From the depths of the Pacific to the heights of the Himalayas, only Dirk Pitt and his children, Summer and Dirk Jr., can unravel the mysteries that will preserve a religion, save a nation… and save the world from war.
My verdict:

I continue to enjoy this series, first written by Clive Cussler. Even though this is not the first book written by his son, it took me until now to realize that the hero was named after him.
