Poseidon’s Arrow by Clive and Dirk Cussler reprise protagonist Dirk Pitt and his trusty and talented sidekick Al Giordino for another thrilling adventure. Old and new submarines provide the backdrop for this novel, in which Dirk and Al engage in enough acrobatics and close calls to stretch a reader’s willing suspension of disbelief to the point of breaking. That, of course, is part of the comfort and fun of this series: the good guys perform heroic feats to defeat the bad guys. Readers who like adventure novels will read this one quickly. I finished it rolling my eyes and feeling slightly entertained. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Poseidon’s Arrow from amazon.com.
