Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler delivers another swashbuckling NUMA adventure featuring a financier turned treasure hunter who vanishes mysteriously—and only Dirk Pitt can prevent an international incident that threatens to start a war.

A wealthy American financier disappears on a treasure hunt in an antique blimp. From Cuban waters, the blimp drifts toward Florida with a crew of dead men—Soviet cosmonauts. Dirk Pitt discovers a shocking scheme: a covert group of US industrialists has put a colony on the moon, a secret base they will defend at any cost. Threatened in space, the Russians are about to strike a savage blow in Cuba—and only NUMA’s Dirk Pitt can stop them. From a Cuban torture chamber to the cold ocean depths, Pitt is racing to defuse an international conspiracy that threatens to shatter the earth!

I wasn't thrilled with this installment. For me, it was more Tom Clancy than Clive Cussler. Too much politics, not enough adventure! And it was missing that special brand of humor that usually peppers a Cussler novel. I was quite blah about it.

This was one of my favorite Clive Cussler books so far. I am a person who reads 4 or 5 books at a time but when I started this one I couldn't put it down, I put away all the others in order to finish this one.

I thought this book was one of the better ones Cusslers writen. Although, I was'nt quite sure about the plot at first. It was a great book though.

I thought this was a wonderful book, hard to put down. Cussler sure had me fooled thinking that Dirk Pitt was finally done with, only to emerge in the end. I found the title a bit misleading however. As there were really two stories within the same book. The space adventure and the hunt for the La Dorada. But was another wonderful adventure with Dirk leading the pack. At times I felt like I was reading a non-fiction book, only to realize that the whole idea behind Castro's wake-up call was fiction. Again, "bravo" to a fast moving and intense adventure.

This is one of my favorite Dirk Pitt adventures yet! Cyclops is fast-paced, fun and full of action. The plot in these Dirk Pitt adventures are usually very intricate and hard to explain. There's a lot going on in Cyclops. The story involves a shipwreck, a secret moon base, the lost La Dorada treasure, a Cuban torture chamber, and of course, the Soviets. I won't go into how all of this ties together, but suffice it to say, it's quite a ride! I love the adventure most of all in Cussler's books. Well that and Dirk Pitt of course. And Dirk Pitt and adventure go hand in hand. Cussler has a way of bringing that adventure to life. While reading, I always feel I'm right there in the story diving on a sunken shipwreck or sneaking through enemy lines. That's why I just finished my 8th Dirk Pitt adventure and ready to begin my 9th. Bring on the danger and excitement!
