  • ""Dirk Pitt is oceanography's answer to Indiana Jones, "praises the Associated Press. "Exotic locations, ruthless villains and many narrow escapes--Cussler's fans come for swashbuckling (and) he delivers. "And now the Cusslers bring us Pitt's most dangerous adventure of all. It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades--an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation's naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing--and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard . . . burned to a crisp.What is going on? And what does it have to do with an Italian submarine that itself disappeared in 1943, lost at sea? Or was she? It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth, from Washington to Mexico, Idaho to Panama. What they discover at the end of it is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined. If they don't succeed in their mission, the world as they know it might end up a very different place--and not a pleasant one. Filled with breathtaking suspense and extraordinary imagination, Poseidon's Arrow"

  • "Die bedeutendste Erfindung der US-Marine - gestohlen! Die Sea Arrow ist bei Weitem das schnellste U-Boot, das jemals entwickelt wurde. Doch nun ist ein Schlüsselelement des Prototypen gestohlen worden, und der Entwickler ist tot. Zur selben Zeit verschwinden im Atlantik mehrere Schiffe. Die meisten werden niemals wiedergefunden. Aber wenn doch, befinden sich an Bord grausam verbrannte Leichen. Nur Dirk Pitt, der Direktor der NUMA, ist in der Lage, die Zusammenhänge aufzuklären. Wenn er versagt, bedeutet das das Ende der Welt, wie wir sie kennen. Seit er 1973 seinen ersten Helden Dirk Pitt erfand, ist jeder Roman von Clive Cussler ein 'New-York-Times'-Bestseller. Auch auf der deutschen SPIEGEL-Bestsellerliste ist jeder seiner Romane vertreten. 1979 gründete er die reale NUMA, um das maritime Erbe durch die Entdeckung, Erforschung und Konservierung von Schiffswracks zu bewahren. Er lebt in der Wüste von Arizona und in den Bergen Colorados."
