Time and time again, Dirk escapes near-death experiences completely unscathed. From thrilling aerial dogfights to heart-stopping hand-to-hand combat, Dirk Pitt follows a trail of blood, treachery, and terror into the depths of a cavernous undersea labyrinth. Air Force base, nearly destroying its fleet of F Starfire jets. With a fast-paced plot rife with action, The Mediterranean Caper is a gripping novel unlike any other.

This is not the first Dirk Pitt story, but it was the first published. Whichever way you want to look at it though, one thing is for sure, this was the first step into stardom for both Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt. Waste of time. Very fast. It was far better. AnnaHernandez Oct 17, Mayday!

This information helps us design a better experience for all users. However, what ends up on Pitt's radar is a massive international smuggling operation, including, among other things, drugs and human trafficking, led by a man known by one name Bruno Von Till but is, in The Mediterranean caper book, the former commander of the Nazi transportation fleet during WWII, who then used that experience to establish and run a fleet of cargo vessels. I had some problems with their lack of depth and the outright sexism really bothered me. First of all, the emotional responses of the characters don't ring true. These acts include the great Spanish gold theft in which nearly toppled the Spanish economy; the mysterious disappearance of 85 high-ranking Nazi officers from Germany at the end of World War II and their sudden reemergence in Buenos Aires ; and the abduction of a bus full of teenage girls in Naples, Italy who were sold into white slavery in Casablanca.

Whichever way you want to look at it though, one thing is for sure, this was the first step into stardom for both Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt. I will warn you that Dirk Pitt is very James Bond-esque. Dirk has been sent to the Aegean to meet Commander Rudi The Mediterranean caper book, captain of the NUMA research vessel First Attempt, to try to get to the bottom of the recent spate of mishaps on its current assignment.

In that situation, Cussler's action is perfect. Waste of time. My Italy is rocky Perugia of the windy winters, magnificent Florence whose streets are paved with sculpture, and something more than a handful of infinitesimal volcanic peaks rising like greeny-brown icebergs from the Tyrrhenian sea north of Sicily.

By reading the books, you can actually see the growth of both the author and the character Dirk Pittwho is a loveable character in all regards. At least I think that's what it was.

Except The Mediterranean caper book the really obvious ones that I spotted ages before the main character seemed to catch on. Dirk and Al save the day when the plane makes it's first attack on the AFB and end up getting in a lot deeper than they planned.

See more Ugh. The adventure part at least I can see growing on me. I also was disappointed in the mystery aspect, since it didn't take much for me to figure out what was going on at least the main partbut then a bunch of extra details were thrown in at the end that came out of nowhere.

This is a man that gets shot in the leg and looks down as if an ant has nipped him and carries on with the task at hand. Use of stem cuttings avoids high variability in terms of production and quality.

The action starts within the first 3 pages and doesn't stop until the very last. If there is a choice of file format, which format is better to download?
