Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive
Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate
plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now,
with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious
In the final pages of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt
discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he
had never known-twenty-three-year-old fraternal twins born
to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake.
Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer,
is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a
marine engineer. And now they are about to help their
father in the adventure of a lifetime.
There is a brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of
Nicaragua. The twins are working in a NUMA(r) underwater
enclosure, trying to determine its origin, when two
startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact,
something strange and beautiful and ancient; and the worst
storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight
not only for them but also for a luxurious floating resort
hotel square in its path.
The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable, and,
desperately, Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA(r)
crew rush to the rescue, but what they find in the storm's
wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For
there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the
world, and the brown tide is only a by-product of its plan.
Soon, its work will be complete-and the world will be a
very different place.
Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world
is already a very different place...
Filled with breathtaking action and suspense, Trojan
Odyssey is Cussler at the height of his storytelling
