I have read all of CC's books and have experienced a decline in my enjoyment of his output - namely they are becoming formulaic. By this I mean you know, you just KNOW, that when a chapter begins with Pitt (Snr. or Jnr.) on a boat/ship spotting another innocent looking vessel bobbing about nearby it is just full to the gunwales of people wanting to kill them and Pitt will end up locked in a hold with other hapless victims while the ship is scuttled. In the same vein, if either father or son takes one of Pitt Snr's classic cars out of the hanger for an innocuous sojourn around Washington it is going to need somewhat more than a simple respray after hostile pursuers have riddled it with gunfire (how much does Pitt Snr pay in insurance premiums?). Also, with particular respect to his recent books, Clive has stepped off the reality reservation by going too far down (to my mind) the 'willing suspension of disbelief' route. Take chapter 30 (groan), where CC imitates Ian Flemming by having a helicopter landing pad hidden by moving geography and a villain's luxury villa you get to on golf trolleys. That said, I really admire his story telling and his research. He is obviously very well read in all things nautical but I miss the realism of his earlier works.

Another author who seems to be passing his sell by date. I have read most of Cusslers books and enjoyed them but this exceeds the bounds of probability. No person can do what Pitt is portrayed as doing in the book and the plot was too far fetched to have any semblance of reality. A pity but maybe Cusslers should retire to his car collection.

Clive Cussler is a prolific writer but he usually writes in tandem with another author. I sometimes wonder how much he writes compared to the other or is it just a bit of a con, that said his books are usually pretty good and entertaining. He has several different series and Dirk Pitt is just one of them, I have read a fair few and there aren't many disappointments.

In Poseidon's Arrow Cusslers do it again, they have reinvented the recipe for writing interesting fast paced action thrillers, this time around the ownership of the precious earth minerals (something we use every day without noticing it too much). Again plots converge here and there to create one clear picture leading to the intriguing action drama in the end part of the book.

While sea again plays major part, as it should in just about every Cussler novel I've read, here the Cussler team have added the interesting scenes of Panama canal to the picture, very realistically.

Recommend for Cussler fans!

I always enjoy reading Cusslers books, they are fast paced page turners. Very far fetched they wouldn't challenge your intelligence, but they are ideal for escapism. Think American James Bond on water without the license to kill. If Dirk Pitt and James Bond were real the US and UK government's would be bankrupt in a week :)

Another great story from Clive Cussler. It see`s Dirk typically globe hopping to retrieve the plans for a new submarine design from another mysterious foe, bent on world domination. It all works out in the end as usual, with lots of twists and turns en route. The only drawback with these books is that they are getting quite expensive!

Just the very bad points: I do not think there is any need, and neither does it make the story more interesting, to see Pitt and his 2-3 associates, performing feats of strength, combat and acrobatics worthy of dozens of Olympic Gold Medals or military awards. It gets very tedious to read time and time again how the trained professional assault teams get neutralised and it always falls to Pitt and his close company to save the day by eliminating, single handed, the heavily armoured enemy opposition yielding little more than sticks and stones. Page after page, the impossibility of Pitt's actions reminds me more of a Harry Poter story, where all is possible, rather than a story more bound to the realms of reality.

The story would be just as captivating had Pitt been more of a normal human being being involved in and directing the plot rather than a character taken out of a fantasy adventure full of magic and dragons.

Another annoying feature in this particular book is the repeat incompetence and negligence of the US government agencies: the White House, the FBI and the Navy, all failing to safeguard and then managing to misplace, repeatedly, military assets, failing to even protect their emplouyees after repeated attempts at their lives and so on.

At the end of the day I'd rather read that Pitt waved his magic wand and solved everything in one page.

Another Dirk Pitt Mystery with him globetrotting round the world solving the unsolveable. A real american style "James Bond" character and tale that only Cussler can pull off with such fine penmanship. I like the escapism of it all from the seemingly unconnected events past and present that all culminate to a satisfying conclusion. This story starts as usual in the past with a second world war sub being attacked. Then moves to present day when two terrorists blow up a mine and Pitt saving the day elsewhere by stopping a runaway cargo ship hitting a liner. All these semmingly unconnected events come together in rip roaring tale of global domination by a twisted German working with the Chinese of rare earth elements being used to create a new secret attack sub by the Americans. A great tale well worth the read.
