NEW BOOKS: Odessa Sea by Clive Cussler
The latest Dirk Pitt adventure has Dirk in the Black Sea responding to a distress call from a freighter near him. By the time Dirk and Al Giordino get there, there are only dead bodies to be found and thus begins the most hazardous case in his life, but not just for Dirk. While exploring a shipwreck, Dirk's two kids end up on Dirk's case. Although the three of them have been in sticky situations before, this one might prove to be their last.
