Cussler is a master and this book typical of his daring do style. There's always just enough reality one thinks...could it possibly happen?
An exciting story as always!
Action all the way. Quite a twist in the end. A must read.
Very Good underwater Adventure!! Cussler is a master creating his characters!
I love anything by Clive Cussler and this book is great.
Clive Cussler's books are very entertaining.
A great undersea adventure with a suprising twist at the end.
I think this is the first Dirk Pitt adventure I've read. I really enjoyed it. It was about a nuclear attack Japan was planning against the US. Good, easy reading!
I enjoy all the Dirk Pitt books!
Really enjoyed this book. Always do with Clive Cussler.
Mr. Cussler, once again, has produced a very entertaining story with many twists and turns. The hero is once again Dirk Pitt and his friend Al Giordino who save the day.
A THIRD atomic bomb not acknowledged by anyone and left over from World War II is one of the beginning elements of this yarn. Add to that the economic ascendency of Japan and you have a very entertaining read.
This is just one of a series written by Clive Cussler and I have always found them to be very intertaining and have read the entire series. Always hoping for another to be added to the series.
WOW! I found myself sitting in the car after I'd reached my destination just to hear more. Incredible story about Nuclear threat from Japan.
Dirk Pitt at his most imaginative.
One of Dirk Pitt's more enjoyable adventures.
Another great Dirk Pitt adventure!
One of the better Dirk Pitt books in the series
Japanese businessmen have created a diabolical plot to control world economy, and all is going well until a radiation leak occurs on board the auto carrier Divine Star . Dirk Pitt is almost killed in the tremors from the explosion aboard the carrier, and the plot weaves suspensefully as he begins to solve the puzzles around him. Nuclear holocaust, secret underwater stations, Japanese art discovered in an old Nazi underground vault, and the kidnapping of two U. S. Congressmen carry readers through an exciting story of power and insatiable greed. Humor pervades the story; Cussler places himself in one scene, suggests in another that the yen become the currency of the United States, and dresses Pitt's Uncle Percy in a lavender sport coat and lizard-skin boots. An attention-holding novel set in 1993.

I really enjoyed this book.
Japan 1945. Two US bombers take off with atomic bombs. Only one gets through. The pacific 1993. A Japanese cargo ship bound for the United States is instantly, thunderously, vaporized taking with it a Norwegian vessel.. Japanese fanatics have developed a chilling plan to devastate and destroy the Western Powers.. From the ocean depths to the discovery of lost Nazi loot, Dirk Pitt is untangling a savage conspiracy and igniting a daring counterattack. While Washington bureaucrats scramble, a brutal industrialist commands his blackmail sceme from a secret island command center. And Dirk Pitt, the dauntless hero of "Treasure" and "Cyclops" is taking on death dealing robots and a human-hunting decendant of Samurai warriors. Pitt alone controls the West's secret ace in the hole: a tidal wave of destruction waiting to be triggered on the ocean floor.
