The Back Cover Reads:
A Fatal Ocean Treasure Hunt...
A Beautiful Woman on a Secret Mission...
An International Standof on the Surface of the Moon!
A wealthy American financier disappears on a treasure hunt in an antique blimp. From Cuban waters, the blimp drifts toward Florida with a crew of dead men-Soviet cosmonauts. DIRK PITT dicovers a shocking scheme: A covert group of U.S. industrialists has put a colony on the moon, a secret base they will defend at any cost. Threatened in space, the Russians are about to strike a savage blow in Cuba. Now, only DIRK PITT can stop an international conspiracy that threatens to shatter the earth!
"CYCLOPS is the biggest, most complex and the best of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt Series."
