'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail

The thrilling first Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.

Fully armed and with all hands on board, the nuclear submarine Starbuck sailed into the calm Pacific Ocean for sea trials - and vanished. No wreckage, no signals, no survivors: nothing . . . until ace maritime troubleshooter Dirk Pitt finds a single, chilling clue in the shark-torn surf off Hawaii - the log of the Starbuck.

'Do not search for us, it can only end in vain . . . ' A crazed journal of madness and death is all that remains. And the Captain's final, scrawled, fear-crazed note locates the Starbuck's grave hundreds of miles from her last known position! The search for the Starbuck plunges Dirk Pitt into his most shattering assignment to date - a whirlpool of deep-sea mystery and terror - the Pacific Vortex!

  • Sexist and awful dialogue

    By MuddyBath
    I enjoyed the unlikely plot, but the style - especially the dialogue - is really stilted. And for a book written in 2009, it is astonishing how the female characters are portrayed and interact with the male characters.

    Another Clive cussler well written book, thoroughly enjoy this gentlemans writing, now reading his earlier books, so many to go through, good job he publishes twice a year, my favourite airplane reading, especially on long haul flights
  • Pacific Vortex

    By Ginny Kwik
    This was a well written book by a skilled craftsman but I did find the storyline less believable than the most way out James Bond adventure. Still, it was a fine introduction to the main character and I have already ordered the next in the series. Let's hope it is more credible.
