Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times best seller 

The gripping Dirk Pitt classic from multimillion-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler. 

May 1914. Two diplomats hurry home by sea and rail, each carrying a document of world-changing importance. Then the liner Empress of India is sunk in a collision, and the Manhattan-Line express plunges from a bridge - both dragging their VIP passengers to watery oblivion. Tragic coincidence or conspiracy? 

In the energy-starved, fear-torn 1980s, Dirk Pitt discovers that those long-lost papers could destroy whole nations, throwing him into his biggest challenge yet. Racing against hired killers, he launches his revolutionary deep-sea search craft and faces the horrors of the sea bed to hunt for the documents. 'Night Probe' has begun....

The most disjointed story

Not the best. Very disappointed as the story was very disjointed. I will be returning this.

Very enjoyable

I’ve been slowly listening my way through the Dirk Pitt series and find every book as satisfying as the previous.

A bit far fetched.

Great buildup, but then became a bit far fetched. I would recommend the book for entertainment but a bit dissapointed with some military unit naming inaccuracies, and the eventual far fetched nature of the story.

Loads of fun!

Loads of fun! I really like all the characters, I enjoy the writing. My brain isn't taxed but there's enough going on to keep me interested.

Great Cussler - massively dated & politically naive

This is what it is: beach thriller - it’s fun, it’s dumb and mildly offensive to the British and the Commonwealth.

The basic problem being that the Commonwealth is -not- an Imperial power run by the UK, and it’s just not hard to find that out.

Then the political situation just doesn’t work, never mind the legal implications.

I guess it’s a book of it’s time and it is early Cussler.
It’s also equally full of pretty tone deaf and dated social norms. Which are grating on a modern listener.

Lastly - I have no idea how he wasn’t sued for one of the characters 🤣

Solid writing with usual Cussler flaw (the women).

Solid writing of an adventure action story - as usual.
Female characters sidelined and ruled by their emotions - as usual.
Great narration by Scott Brick - as usual.

Unusually high demand for suspension of disbelief to enjoy the story completely. Still - quite an engaging listen.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Great storytelling by Scott Brick, a favourite.
The storyline is entertaining and intriguing. The tales of Pitt as usual don't disappoint.

Early Cussler

The story flowed, but unresolved complications.
Had a good underlying theme but the sub plots didn't connect on so well. A harbinger of good books to come.
