About this title

Synopsis:

Dirk Pitt rides a tidal wave of intrigue in this classic Cussler.

 

On an isolated Greek island, a World War I fighter plane attacks a modern U.S. Air Force base--a mysterious saboteur preys on an American scientific expedition--and Dirk Pitt plays a deadly game of hunter and hunted with the elusive head of an international smuggling ring.

 

From the Publisher:

0n the remote Greek Island of Thasos, a German Albatros, a vintage World War I fighter plane, has swooped out of the blazing blue sky to attack a modern U.S. Air Force base, nearly destroying its fleet of F-105 Starfire jets. Thirty miles offshore, piloting a Catalina en route to the American scientific research vessel First Attempt, Dirk Pitt hears and responds to the Brady Field emergency call. He blows the Albatros back into the oblivion from which it came, ripping open a mammoth half-century-old conspiracy in the process.

Pitt has come to the Aegean to hunt down the mysterious saboteur preying on First Attempt -- the ship's mission is to search for a missing evolutionary link, a rare and possibly extinct fish -- but connecting the sabotage on board to the attack on Brady Field, Dirk Pitt knows he's fishing for a shark: a human shark that smells blood.

The adventure begins with Teri. She's a glamorous modern Greek goddess in a red bikini, devastatingly beautiful, devastatingly dangerous, and the key to a vast drug-smuggling ring about to bring off a lethal billion- dollar deal. As much as she's willing to reveal to Pitt, there's one secret she holds back: the truth about a missing Nazi war criminal now ruling over a corrupt empire. For decades he has managed to elude international authorities, remain one step ahead of the world's top investigators, and destroy all his enemies, except one: Dirk Pitt.

From a thrilling aerial dogfight to heart-stopping hand-to-hand combat, Dirk Pitt follows a trail of blood, treachery, and terror into the depths of a cavernous undersea labyrinth. There, in the legendary Pit of Hades, the action explodes in a climax of unparalleled excitement, as Pitt confronts the brilliance and brutali- ty of a sinister nemesis with a genius for Death.
