Dirk Pitt se enfrenta a una siniestra y sofisticada conspiración soviética: ejercer el control mental del presidente de los Estados Unidos. El misterio de un barco que, al hundirse, provoca una mortífera corriente venenosa, el secuestro del presidente norteamericano a bordo de su propio yate y la desaparición de los principales miembros de su gobierno, son algunos de los elementos que Clive Cussler utiliza para transportar al lector desde las profundidades marinas hasta las cumbres secretas del poder en Washington y Moscú.

This was one of the books in my previous mentioned 'Gold Mine' at a yard sell purchases.
I will not freak Mr. Cussler out on what I paid for this gem. However, I often wonder what went on behind the closed doors of the woman who sold them to me after her husband found out. Hmmm
This was definitely on of my top favorites on the Dirk Pitt series.
The intrigue, to me, seemed more in depth then the previous books of his I had read.
I think I still secretly hold a slight crush on both Al Giordino and Dirk Pitt to this day.
Great, fun reads. Intrigue and super spy/hero shenanigans. ( )

With each Dirk Pitt novels, the world Clive Cussler is building seems to get more and more intense and diverge further from the world we live in. We started with simple salvage and simple enough (although extensive) smuggling and drugs. And then they raised the Titanic. And found a treaty to add Canada to the United States.

[b:Deep Six|41698|Deep Six (Dirk Pitt, #7)|Clive Cussler|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1400897211l/41698._SY75_.jpg|1064794] is certainly no exception, with a primary plot essentially resolving around kidnapping and mind controlling the President of the United States. As one does.

One thing I do appreciate though is how internally consistent these books have been so far. The North American treaty is found and Canada is merged into the United States. Is that written out of the story? Nope. It's not a huge plot point, but it's stuck to. And it's interesting to see this entirely parallel reality taking shape.

Another interesting point is reading this book decades later, with various changes to the office of the president and their powers. Executive privilege has expanded far beyond what was considered ridiculous in this book and impeachment is once again in the news. It's interesting to see that from an older point of view.

I think my biggest negative with this book is that it was really about salvage, which is my favorite part of the books. It's more action and political espionage than anything. Still a fun enough read.

Final bit: There's a cheeky line that basically says Pitt's life "reads like a novel." I'm amused. ( )

There is a plot to take over the US Government and Dirk Pitt must save the day. An international corporation and USSR are the bad guys and the plots run together. Dirk saves the world. The way Pitt disposed of the villain wasn't typical -- that makes for intriguing listening. ( )
