I admit it. I oftentimes buy my books at flea markets and yard sells. What is awesome is when the wife is dumping her husbands book collection. Talk about a gold mine for an avid addicted reader and a lover of suspense, action and 'secret agent' types. This particular yard sell endeavor yielded me a BOX FULL of paperback and (got to love it) Hardback! copies of Clive Cussl ...more
“Night Probe!” is the third Cussler novel I have ever read, and it’s the sixth to feature his beloved action hero, Dirk Pitt. It’s clear to me now why so many people love the Pitt series.
Strange name aside, Dirk Pitt is a pretty lovable hero. Tough but funny, charismatic but serious when he needs to be, Pitt is basically an American James Bond minus a ...more
Dirk Pitt gets involved, as a treaty may be in a sunken ship. Plenty of spy jinks and high adventure.
I had a problem with the ending where a Naval officer is rewarded for telling secrets, which got people killed. Sure they were fictional characte ...more
Despite enjoying this book most of the way through I can only give it 3 stars because of a couple of annoyances. One character behaved like a naive and gullible idiot and the ending left me wondering how Cussler is going to go forward with the ...more

In my opinion, Night Probe (pub. 1981) is the best of Dirk Pitt's earlier novel and byy earlier, I mean before books set before Treasure... for no particular reason except I feel that by Treasure, the tone and style of the novels has shifted more to his contemporary style.
I re-read Night Probe! because of my love of the deep water recovery scenes and the exciting locomot ...more
I have read that this is one of the best early Dirk Pitt novels - apparently Treasure is the dividing point. I did enjoy it quite a bit, especially the underwater scenes. I also read that Brian Shaw was ...more

For me, Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series is like that restaurant (except that Clive Cussler doesn’t know me—at least, I don’t think he does). I have read all but the last two Pitt books—and am rereading them ...more

Although Raise the Titanic broke Cussler into superstardom, this book was, to this reader, his best.
Nowadays with his co-written books on the best seller list monthly, its a good idea to go back and read the books that got him there.
This book is again another exciting book in the Dirk Pitt series. Has some of the typical plot lines but also some twists that are not easily predicted. ...more
