A diabolical plot to change the climate of the Northern Hemisphere is intertwined with an historically significant discovery with one man finding himself in the middle of it. Trojan Odyssey is the seventeenth book in Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series which sees the titular hero, his best friend, and his two grown children take on a multinational corporation in the Caribbean and Central America.

The book opens with a fictional historical overview of Homer's Odyssey as told by Odysseus, who withhold details. In the present day, Dirk Pitt, his son Dirk Pitt, Jr., his daughter Summer Pitt, and friend Al Giordino are involved in the search for the source of a brownish contamination around the waters of the Caribbean. While searching off the coast of the Dominican Republic, the Pitt twins find bronze Celtic items leading to the finding of a burial of an important druidess resulting in NUMA concluding that Iman Wilkes’ theory of the Trojan War occurring in England and Odysseus’ journey occurring in the Atlantic is correct. Meanwhile Dirk and Al search around the coast, rivers, and lakes of Nicaragua leading to them finding out about a diabolical plot by the multinational corporation Odyssey and China to divert the Gulf Steam through four tunnels to the Pacific and freeze North America and Europe while selling them newly created fuel cells at massive profits. Dirk and Al foil the plot then rescue the twins when Odyssey’s leadership captures them and attempt to sacrifice them in a neo-druidic ritual, afterwards they decide they are too old to continue saving the world. Al plans to transfer to another NUMA department or quit depending on Admiral Sandecker’s response, however Sandecker tells Dirk he will be nominated for Vice President and has set things in motion to make Dirk the new Director of NUMA. Finally, Dirk and Congresswoman Loren Smith get married.

Utilizing the theory presented in Iman Jacob Wilkens’ Where Troy Once Stood, Cussler creates two mysteries that intertwine but are relatively independent from one another. Dividing the ancient and the modern mysteries between the Pitt twins and the team of Dirk and Al brought a better narrative flow as well as allowing Cussler to develop the newly introduced twins that will carry the series going forward. While the Gulf Stream diversion plot is unique, it was easy for it to be foiled given that one of the interconnected tunnels runs right next to a volcano that is set off by a bomb. Odyssey’s leader mysterious lead who happens to be the druidic high priestess who disguises herself as a overweight man was pretty underwhelming. Cussler attempted to put back the retcon genie he unleashed in the previous installment, but unfortunately created another when he resurrected Loren’s father for the wedding. Through there really is not an antagonist and Cussler focused on developing the Pitt twins, this book read a whole lot better than the previous installment though again not up to the quality he achieved a few books ago.

Trojan Odyssey is the last book of the Dirk Pitt series that Clive Cussler solely by himself, while not his best work it is an improvement over the previous installment. It will be interesting to see if Dirk Cussler will help the overall quality of the series going forward. ( )

Another great Cussler! ( )

Dit 17e deel uit de Dirk Pitt serie is weer een typisch Cussler verhaal; makkelijk te lezen, ongeloofwaardig verhaal, grappig.

In dit verhaal maken we kennis met de twee volwassen kinderen van Dirk Pitt, kinderen waarvan hij het bestaan niet wist, tot ze voor zijn deur staan na het overlijden van hun moeder.

Dirk Pitt and the gang remain one of my favorite guilty pleasures, even though I've fallen a few books behind in the series. The plots are far-fetched, the plot holes are sometimes gaping, and the dialogue is often stilted. (Someone in this day and age referring to something as "heavenly"? Or a 24-year-old woman saying "I shall"?) But there is always some interesting science and speculative fiction behind the main plot, and this one is no exception. This time around, the historical question centers on whether the modern-day Turkey location is the true site of the ancient city of Troy, along with some interesting discussion of the ramifications of an alternative theory that gets presented as part of the narrative. And another thing that this one has, given that it's the 17th outing in the series, is some serious character development. In the last outing, Pitt met a couple of people whose existence had been unknown to him. This time around, there are more changes taking place in his life and the lives of some of those closest to him, as well. So that's all good. But honestly, the bad guy(s) in this one are silly, and their motivation is even sillier. And lastly, the whole thing reads as if it had originally been two (or more) separate stories that were cobbled together into one narrative. Not only because some of the transitions are awkward, but because, on more than one occasion, the reader is told the same thing that he has already been told earlier in the book. Several characters, for example, reappear later in the story and are introduced as if they were new characters. Pitt's home and its environs (an aircraft hangar filled with vintage automobiles and interesting knick-knacks) is a setting twice, and each time gets a similar introduction. Weird. It just seemed as if I was reading two (or more) separate and partial stories tied into one complete novel with some particularly bad editing, or else there were two writers writing different parts of the thing.

In the final pages of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he had never known-twenty-three-year-old fraternal twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer, is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a marine engineer. And now they are about to help their father in the adventure of a lifetime. ( )
