A real Cussler adventure. "Clive Cussler" again manages to become a part of the story for a few pages and rescue the heroes. A very hard to put down book and definitiely one you don't want to get into just before bedtime!

This is one of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels--interestingly, Clive Cussler & his son wrote this book about Dirk Pitt & his son saving the world from a new biological virus in a lost Japaneses
WW II submarine that never made it to the US. It's a race with Pitt, his son, and a marine biologist named Summer against the enemy to find the sub and destroy the virus before the enemy finds the sub & unleashes it against the world. Very exciting!

This is a typical Clive Cussler book. In this story, he has taken a plot from WW II in which the Japanese were planning to launch a biological weapon on the United States. The plan goes awry and is lost for many decades. A power driven Korean discovers the plan and embarks upon a scheme to use this weapon to reunite the Koreas while striking a devastating blow upon the United States.

It is the task of Dirk Pitt Jr and Summer with some help from their father Dirk to foil the plot. They do it in the typical fast paced action style of Clive Cussler.

I am a Dirk Pitt fan, so this book was a must for me! It is a bit different in that his children take center stage here and Dirk Senior is left with a lesser role, but it has all the action and intrigue of the other books with a little more sensitivy and love of the younger generation.

I thought the book was a bit too long for what it was. Exciting in some places, but definitely not my favourite Clive Cussler.

This is an EXTRA LARGE print version of this Dirk Pitt novel. Dirk's two adult children are now partners in his adventures. Good WW II back story. Cussler at his best.

This is a fun (but like most of Clive's stuff) somewhat predictable book with a fun premise... Scary!

I think different chapters were written by the 2 authors, and at times in the beginning it was a bit tedeous, but it eventually became a good read.

Two World War II Japanese subs carrying a biological virus threaten the world.
Once again, the Pitt's come to the rescue. This story involves mostly Dirk Pitt Jr. although his father does come into the picture. It was a little confusing at first, with the two Dirk's, until I realized it was Jr.
As always, lots of action and unbelievable exploits....

If you like Clive Cussler I guess you'll like this book but I thought the dialogue was atrocious. People who've been Cussler fans for a long time tell me his son is taking over the franchise. Maybe that explains it.

Another book in the Clive Cussler series. During the last days of WWII, the Japanese sent two submarines to the American west coast with the intentions of unleashing biological warfare. Now, there are people who want to find one of these subs and gain possession of the virus and use them. Another good read from the master of suspense and intrigue.

This book is one of my favorites I've ever read and I give very few books 5 stars. Clive Cussler definitely has another winner here. If you like adventure novels, grab this one and prepare for a wild ride.

Great Dirk Pitt adventure novel. Convoluted plotting.
The BLACK WIND is WWII Japan's fall-back plan after the Divine Wind Kamikazi suicide bombers aren't panicking the Allies enough to win the war. Secret plans were made to use submarines off America's West Coast. No plan is perfect, and few plans survive intact once they make contact with the enemy, but this plan encountered quite a few problems.
Decades later, NUMA adventurer Dirk Pitt is left to counter the repercussions of the BLACK WIND.

ANOTHER GREAT DIRK PITT SENIOR &JUNIOR ADVENTURE
reviewed Black Wind (Dirk Pitt, Bk 18) ( Large Print) on + 657 more book reviews
From Publishers Weekly: "About halfway through this rip-snorting adventure thriller, a "white-haired man" rescues heroes Dirk Pitt Jr. and his sister, Summer, from death by drowning. That man is revealed to be author Cussler (Trojan Odyssey, etc.), reminding Dirk of "an older version of his own father," legendary oceanographer Dirk Pitt, hero of Cussler's previous novels. Just as the primary action baton is passed in this tale from Pitt Sr. to Jr., readers may note that Cussler's coauthor is his own son. But even if Cussler is beginning to pass on his writing baton, he's doing so with panache: thriller fans will revel in this action-packed yarn of land- and sea-based derring-do stuffed with technical details on matters from biochemical weapons "chimeras" to rocket launches. The villain is a South Korean industrialist working for the North Koreans with an eye toward unifying Korea by ridding the country of American troops, allowing for an invasion of the South. His plan is to aim a sea-borne rocket filled with a combo of deadly viruses at Los Angeles, with clues laying blame on Japanese terrorists, thus distracting America while the North makes its move. But villain and modus operandi matter less than the series of exciting hairbreadth escapes wrought by Dirks Jr. and Sr. and Summerincluding Dirk Sr.'s escape from being poached alive in a minisub trapped underneath massive rocket boosters spewing an inferno of flames. There's a slight, nasty gloss of "yellow peril" on the villain and his actions, and it's only the Americans who greet likely death with a grin and a quip, but that's a minor knock on some major entertainment that's bound toward the top of the charts."
