From the Publisher
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.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top Customer Reviews
Starting with the attack on a US airfield in the Greek islands by a biplane and involving smuggling, German fighter aces and the trademark underwater sequences for which Cussler is perhaps best known for (through his non-fiction writings as much as for Dirk Pitt) I can guarantee that this novel will no doubt charm even the harshest of Cusslers critics as long as they take it for what it is - some harmless. Mildly diverting fun.
On a sidenote, all the reviewers who are commenting on the bad writing should really lighten up, this was after all one of Clive Cussler's earliest works :)

Enough fact like details to get you to believe it could have happened!
Cussler at his best, the action is relentless and approaches sensory overload.
