Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of the big American authors who has joined the franchise business and let others write from his outlines, but this is the genuine article and stars his larger-than-life superhero Dirk Pitt. The co-author is his son whom I understand is being groomed to take over his father’s mantle with Dirk. How long before son goes solo I don’t know but for the present the collaboration is seamless. This is up to standard. High action adventure that doesn’t let up.

Comparison: Stephen Coonts, Chris Ryan. Matthew Reilly.
Similar this month: Jeff Rovin (Tom Clancy), Geoffrey Archer.

If you like Clive Cussler you might also like to read books by Jack Higgins, Steve Berry and Robert Ludlum.

Synopsis

Black Wind by Clive Cussler

In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure - a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of biological virus. Neither sub made it to the designated target. But that does not mean they were lost.

Someone knows about the subs and what they carried, knows too where they might be, and has an extraordinary plan in for the prize inside - a plan that could reshape the world as we know it. All that stands in the way are three people: a marine biologist named Summer, a marine engineer named Dirk, and their father, Dirk Pitt, the new head of NUMA.

Pitt has faced devastating enemies before, has even teamed up with his children to track them down. But never has he looked upon the face of pure evil ... until now.

Filled with dazzling suspense and breathtaking action, Black Wind is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.
