9780143057468: Trojan Odyssey (Dirk Pitt Novels)

In Trojan Odyssey Clive Cussler's great hero Dirk Pitt is on the frontline, fighting an international conspiracy.

A daring rescuer sends Dirk Pitt on an adventure that will determine the future of the planet...

When a hurricane unexpectedly blows up off the coast of Nicaragua, a giant floating hotel lies in its path. With no escape for the helpless passengers and crew, it's left to Dirk Pitt and NUMA to launch a rescue and save the day. But in the storm's wake. Pitt and his team discover clues that point to an ancient mystery, with shocking implications for today.

As Pitt investigates further, he uncovers a plot by a mysterious billionaire called Specter to dramatically alter the Earth's climate, leaving him in control of the only solution. With foes attempting to stop him on every side, Pitt is in a race against time to prevent global catastrophe...

With heart-racing action and nerve-shredding tension, Trojan Odyssey proves that Clive Cussler is a master storyteller. Trojan Odyssey is the seventeenth of the bestselling Dirk Pitt novels - the series that also includes Atlantis Found and, his first novel, Mayday - and hero Dirk Pitt finds himself on the frontline of a battle against not only the elements, but also international conspiracy.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2004. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. abridged edition. 144 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New. In his first adventure since the revelation that he s a parent, Dirk Pitt must uncover the truth behind the myth of another long-lost father-figure, Homer s Odysseus, if he s going to stop a dangerous cult from reshaping the earth in their own image. Fraternal twins, Summer Pitt and Dirk Pitt, Jr., are working to determine the origin of a strange brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient. And the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight for them and a nearby floating luxury resort hotel calledOcean Wanderer. The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable. And now that Dirk Pitt has learned he s a father, he will stop at nothing to protect his two children. He rushes into the chaos, only to find that what s left in the storm s wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and Summer s relic may be the only clue to the man calling the shots. Whoever he is, he s connected to a cult that believes the Celts, also known as the Achaeans, reached the New World millennia before the accepted history suggests. If he s right, his ancestors laid the foundation for the work he will soon complete and our world will be a very different place. Though if Summer s discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780143057468
