Preview — Poseidon’s Arrow by Clive Cussler. It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades — an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. 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.
What is going on? And what does it cusslsr to do with an Italian submarine that itself disappeared inlost at sea? What they discover at the end of it is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined. Audio CDUnabridged14 pages.

Ann asked Pitt “Is it in the water? Pitt said it was behind the barge, where the Navy admirals seemed to be focusing more of their interest.
This cusler weird to Mrs. Pitt because the North Dakota already had its sea trials, and why was that barge interesting? See all 5 questions about Poseidon’s Arrow….
Lists with This Book. Pretty good, the cusslsr was a bit slow, but it got better as the story progressed. You notice quickly that Cussler follows the same pattern in every book if you have read some of his books, but it works often even if one rarely gets surprised.
But I do enjoy reading a Cussler book now and then. View all 4 comments. Jan 30, Ken rated it did not like it. I use to like Clive’s books but lately they have become really hard to like. Dirk Pitt is his original character but this book had so many plot holes cjssler stupid oversights that I just could not get into it. Dirk is sent to investigate cliv disappearance of a secret fi system.
They of course find the shipwreck but over look the mysterious ship that just “happens” to be hanging around. The bad guys steal fouco system from Dirk and crew. After a chase of course Dirk recovers the girl and manages to d I use to like Clive’s fhoco but lately they have become really hard to like. After a chase of course Dirk recovers the girl and manages to destroy the prototype drive system.
However the US government is so inept that they don’t think to send someone to search the scientist’s lab and home. But of course this urgent search can wait for Dirk to take the girl for a dinner date and then a leisurely drive out to the home.
They find the scientist’s research albx just before the bad guys show up to steal them. After a chase Dirk manages to get the notes back only to turn them over to a FBI agent that is so dumb he puts the everything in the back of his car and then takes time to drop off the girl at her home.
Clive is really asking us to believe that the US Government is so inept that it cannot protect vital defense research from a group of 3rd rate thieves and black market crooks.
I think this will be the last Clive Cussler book that I read.
Sep 12, Jerry rated it really liked it. Exciting and fun, even if I didn’t understand all of it. It’s been a few years since I have read a Dirk Pitt novel.
They’re fun, but not too much deep, except for the diving: Navy is developing a superfast, super quiet submarine. A crazy Austrian steals the plans and the prototype as part of his plan cusslre create a monopoly on rare earth elemnents along with the Chinese.

As always, this is far fetched, and just when things are bleakest, help appears from nowhere to saeve Dirk, his friends, or his family. View all 8 comments. Mar 05, John rated it it was ok. I have read all the Dirk Pitt novels and have really enjoyed them, until this one.
Most of fukco novels catch your interested from the 2nd or 3rd page. Most have very well written and researched plots that are believable. The fun part was always the historical secondary plot that made the stories unique.
Usually once I start the book I have a hard cusslerr putting the book down. Not so this time, I let the book set se I have read all the Dirk Pitt novels and have really enjoyed them, until this one. Not so this time, I let the book set several days while I watched re-runs on T. You can read all the other reviews to get the book cover info about this addition of the Dirk Pitt series.
The problem is that when you read all the other stories in the series, you know that Dirk is not stupid. If a major new weapon system is stolen he is going to take security precautions. In this adventure he never does, he bumbles around like he has no enemies in the world. In past stories these type of obvious plot holes would never have happened.
I have told my brothers to wait til they can find it in a used book store. I know that Pitt is going to survive but Cussler’s books are still a fun read. Dec 09, James rated it really liked it.
Suspend belief and enjoy the ride! The elements of the Cussler style for the Dirk Pitt adventures are all here – the damsel in distress, events on opposite sides of th globe being linked, a huge build up to a quick finale, and a bit player named Clive Cussler.

Add to this Dirk Pitt Jr and his sister Summer who follows in the grand tradition of Scrappy Doo, Muppet Babies, and every other story teller who has run dry of original ideas for his main character so adds the main characters cusselr to continue the adventures and one gets an increasingly frustrating series.
It’s all formulaic but the telling is done well and moves at a decent pace.
What makes the Isaac Bell series seem more fresh than the Dirk Pitt stories? Is it the co-author? Or a tiredness the author himself has with the characters. Pitt and Giordino are on the trail of the left of rare earth elements which is affecting the U.
Pitt starts off in Chile, spends time in California and Idaho and is finally kidnapped in the middle of the Pacific to end up in Hawaii. With stop offs in Mexico and Alha.
Did someone say rare earth elements because, what a coincidence, off Madagascar Summer and Jr stumble upon a mystery involving them too.
The family is reunited for shootout ending and the solving of yet another sea mystery. Nov 23, James Hein rated it liked it. Apart from that a fairly classic Dirk Pitt adventure. A bit more disjointed than usual and the feeling I got was the book was a little rushed. It was entertaining and for the most part reasonably workable. Dirk Pitt has been a part of my life for the past twenty years.
I once looked forward to the next swashbuckling adventure to come hot off the keyboard of Clive Cussler, however, much like John Grisham, the plots started becoming highly formulaic, ergo predictable; and I felt that the series had become more of a ‘must get bestseller out by Christmas’ approach rather than the thoroughly thought out and well researched they once were.
The introduction of Dirk’s twin children Dirk Pitt Jr and Summer Pitt in Valhalla Rising was quite an emotional climax to a fantastic series, but they now serve little purpose in the latter books other than bolster the flagging plot lines.
I was bitterly disappointed in Poseidon’s Arrow as Cussler, like Clancy before him with the Jack Ryan series has eked the character out well beyond his use-by date. If you consider that Dirk Pitt must be well into his sixties by now, he is certainly energetic for someone who is entitled to a bus pass! If you want a good Cussler book, I would recommend picking up one of the Isaac Bell series, or take a trip down memory lane and re-read some of the earlier Dirk Pitts.
