Publisher's Summary

“Dirk Pitt is oceanography’s answer to Indiana Jones,” praises the Associated Press. “Exotic locations, ruthless villains and many narrow escapes - Cussler’s fans come for swashbuckling [and] he delivers.”
And now the Cusslers bring us Pitt’s most dangerous adventure of all.
It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation’s naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing - and the man who developed it is dead.
At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard...burned to a crisp.
What is going on? And what does it have to do with an Italian submarine that itself disappeared in 1943, lost at sea? Or was she?
It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt’s children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth, from Washington to Mexico, Idaho to Panama. What they discover at the end of it is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined. If they don’t succeed in their mission, the world as they know it might end up a very different place - and not a pleasant one.
Filled with breathtaking suspense and extraordinary imagination, Poseidon’s Arrow is further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.

Another great adventure for Dirk

It is hard to come up with any criticism for Clive Cussler. I have read every one of his books and wait with anticipation any and all upcoming books. I have found in the past, any author who puts out any large volume of books (ie Janet Evanovich, (RIP) Robert Parker etc) water their stories down just to publish something. Not so with Mr. Cussler. All series, be it Dirk Pit, the Oregon crew, Isaac Bell are fresh exciting and just plain fun to read (or should I say listen to). Possibly it is the collaboration of the several co-authors that keeps the adventures going with new ideas, I do not know, but whatever the recipie, it works.
Scott Brick has got to be the best narrator out there and the partnership between author and narrator really makes it a great listen.
I realize that this review is a bit broad, but what can I say, you buy a Clive Cussler book and you have a great adventure no matter what title it is. I have never been disappointed ever.

Frequent Listener

Kind of a sleeper on this book from Clive and Dirk. Seems to me the formula is being used a little too much these days. Some good parts, Scott did a good job on the naration, I just don't think this was as engaging as others. Based on my driving and park measurement, I didn't sit in my garage to finish a chapter or section on any of this. I actually zoned out on some of it. Sorry Clive!
