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.

I have read many of Clive Cussler's books but this was a disappointment because of the curse word and taking The Lord's name in vain. Read morePublished 2 days ago by David B.
Was obvious this was the early days of C.C.'s writing career. Just wish he could learn the difference between a magazine and a clip.Published 9 days ago by lowball 1

Rough early work by Cussler. Would not recommend. Awkward diction. Story is much less engaging than his later works. Fortunately Cussler got much better as time passed.Published 27 days ago by B.D.
