    1. So, I m berating myself that I have only recently discovered the joys of reading Clive Cussler Seriously, Clive, where have you been all my life Night Probe is the third Cussler novel I have ever read, and it s the sixth to feature his beloved action hero, Dirk Pitt It s clear to me now why so many people love the Pitt series.Strange name aside, Dirk Pitt is a pretty lovable hero Tough but funny, charismatic but serious when he needs to be, Pitt is basically an American James Bond minus a politi [...]


    2. In May 1914 two couriers disappear in twin disasters taking the only two copies of the North American Treaty with them The governments of the United States and Great Britain order a cover up so it is as if the treaty never existed In February 1989 Heidi Milligan, a stunningly beautiful of course naval commander discovers an obscure reference to the long lost document which is now worth billions of dollars The race is on to rescue one copy of the treaty from the bottom of the ocean I have a soft [...]


    3. I ve read all of the Dirk Pitt books except perhaps some of the newest ones and this definitely ranks as one of my favorites.In my opinion, Night Probe pub 1981 is the best of Dirk Pitt s earlier novel and byy earlier, I mean before books set before Treasure for no particular reason except I feel that by Treasure, the tone and style of the novels has shifted to his contemporary style.I re read Night Probe because of my love of the deep water recovery scenes and the exciting locomotive storyline [...]


    4. Dirk does it again, folks The superhuman stamina and luck Cussler gives this guy always overwhelms me I would never have accused either of them of having romantic tendencies, but the wonderful ending of Night Probe why does he end every title with an exclamation point proved me wrong This is the best novel in the series so far.


    5. You know that one favorite restaurant of yours Sure you do the one that you go into so often that they know you on sight, and where you order pretty much the same thing every time so that you almost don t have to order they just bring it to you And it is always so good You know the place For me, Clive Cussler s Dirk Pitt series is like that restaurant except that Clive Cussler doesn t know me at least, I don t think he does I have read all but the last two Pitt books and am rereading them now so [...]


    6. an early dirk pitt but giordino does put in an appearance small 1914 2 top diplomats hurrying home by sea and rail each carrying a document of world changing importance a north american treaty however, both the train and the ship are sunk and they die, together with their documents fast forward 3 4 of a century and with energy a top priority these documents could make a huge difference enemies and allies alike fight to find them first and in the process many people good and bad die was surprised [...]


    7. This is a superb example of Cussler s oeuvre It has action, great scenes, suspense and even a homage to James Bond.Although Raise the Titanic broke Cussler into superstardom, this book was, to this reader, his best.Nowadays with his co written books on the best seller list monthly, its a good idea to go back and read the books that got him there.


    8. In 1914 the United States, Canada, and Britain sign a secret treaty selling Canada to the United States When two couriers carrying copies of the treaty disappear a cover up takes place Decades later when world energy supplies dwindle, the American president renews efforts to find and enforce the treaty despite the efforts of both the British and a radical French Canadian group.


    9. It had a lot of action I thought that it was very good Clive Cussler does a very good job at writing the Dirk Pitt collection In this book Dirk has to find a treaty that has been buried in the sea for a long time, but the British don t want him to.


    10. This Dirk Pitt adventure was a dangerous one for our hero With a high body count, corrupt politician s imagine that , and a retired British spy called back in to service This had the feel of a spy novel, with the action of a Pitt novel Fun read.



    11. Heidi Milligan discovers of an old crumpled letter in a university archive which leads into obscure and long lost document of North American Treaty In early 1914 the British were aware that war with Germany was just around the corner Britain was scraping the bottom of its treasury when it entered World War I The Prime Minister Herbert Asquith and King George V out of desperation approaches President Woodrow Wilson with a proposal of selling Canada to the US for 1 billion dollars Richard Essex, U [...]


    12. This is a book that brings me both enjoyment and frustration It is a fast book not as fast as Vixen 3, but still fast and it still manages to be interesting It also has James Bond appearing opposite Dirk Pitt Ironically, this is my third or fourth copy of the hardbound edition I bought my first copy at a thrift store, loaned it out, and never got it back Same with the second copy The third copy I bought at a used book store, only to have it magically disappear from my shelves either I loaned it [...]


    13. Planes, trains, and automobiles may have been a favorite of Cussler s having read through many of his books I m reading through several of his series Pitt, Fargo, Oregon, and Bell and have begun to notice the great love he has for the aforementioned vehicles.This book is again another exciting book in the Dirk Pitt series Has some of the typical plot lines but also some twists that are not easily predicted.


    14. Before Clive Cussler and his co authors worked themselves into a several books a year publishing schedule, as much as three years would elapse between the adventures of National Underwater and Marine Agency scientist, adventurer and Square Jawed Hero Dirk Pitt So although Night Probe came out eight years after Pitt debuted, it s only the fifth Pitt adventure and we can see Cussler still working on his storytelling groove.Set in 1989, seven years after the publication date, we find a United State [...]


    15. My Rating Scale 1 Star Horrible book, It was so bad I stopped reading it I have not read the whole book and wont2 Star Bad book, I forced myself to finish it and do NOT recommend I can t believe I read it once3 Star Average book, Was entertaining but nothing special No plans to ever re read4 Star Good Book, Was a really good book and I would recommend I am Likely to re read this book5 Star GREAT book, A great story and well written I can t wait for the next book I Will Re Read this one or times [...]


    16. 5 in the Dirk Pitt series Published in 1981, this series entry takes place in the near future of 1989 after a 1914 prologue Dirk Pitt series May, 1914 Two undercover couriers plummet to watery deaths in twin disasters, taking with them the only two copies of the North American Treaty, a precedent shattering secret pact between the United States and Great Britain On both sides of the Atlantic, stunned heads of state immediately order all mention of the treaty obliterated forever February, 1989 In [...]


    17. OkayI m Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel Actually, I was going to visit a friend, but he was at a meetingd in case you don t know, pool areas in Vegas that have swim up gambling are open to the public Seriously And I start giggling uncontrollably Is it the aluminimum bottled Bud Lights they are bringing on demand and I was demanding The tackiness of the pool area and people there No It was from reading Night Probe It s a Dirk Pitt novel I ve somehow missed, and it s one of the most over the top and [...]


    18. This was the very first Clive Cussler book I ever read cover to cover, back in 1986 at the tender age of 10 Read it a second time at the age of 28, and now for the third time at the age of 38 The book, classic old school Cussler, hasn t lost its magic both the regular characters like Dirt Pitt and Al Giordino, and the guest characters like the lovely Commander Heidi Milligan, the diabolical Foss Gly, and the suave British MI6 agent James Bo er, Brian Shaw, are among the most memorable of any Cus [...]


    19. This one was a little too cloak and dagger for my tastes And Dirk Pitt didn t even enter the story except for a brief one night stand until 100 pages in I did love the conspiracy and how Dirk figured it all out A thrilling read once Numa and Pitt entered the story I did have issues with the heroines sleeping habits but that s on me and not the story itself without it things wouldn t have gone as planned I think later books in the series are better written and enjoyable.


    20. Superb suspense This is one of the best in the Dirk Pitt series, and I really think you should stop reading this rubbish review and get this book.I ve read nearly all of the Pitt books now missing a few later ones , and I think this and Vixen 03 are the best I love the ending here, and the suspense around the train.Cussler really starts to hit you with his surprise endings around this book, a great formula he d follow for some time to come.Pick this upw


    21. The best Cussler novel I ve read to date A novel of alternate and secret history, that encompasses numerous story lines that intermingle with each other throughout Pitt, Cussler s main character, does not appear meaningfully until well into the story, a change from Cussler s normal style from what I ve read so far from him I would recommend this to any Cussler fan and would recommend this as the one to read for a non Cussler fan.


    22. Clive Cussler is a great writer Although I ve only read three of his books all of which were about Dirk Pitt his writing style is great he provides enough information when needed and always seem to find a way to bring pleasure to readers through expected and unexpected plot twists His characters and their different personalities can bring variety to the mix I love the suspense of how no matter how much Dirk finds out his antagonist is not far behind.


    23. Night Probe by Clive CusslerI m a massive fan of Clive Cussler and all his works, especially Dirk Pitt, Kurt Austin and the new Isaac Bell stories As expected, Night Probe is a great addition to the collection It s classic Cussler, spans over years and is full of action and adventure.


    24. It was okay I felt the storyline was somewhat a stretch in the sense of having a treaty that combines USA and Canada together Wonder how Canadians would have felt about it The details were good the focus being the relations and politics between USA and UK Would have been interesting if there were some twists and turns at the end.


    25. Dirk Pitt searches for copies of a lost 1914 treaty signed by the United States and England Of course, if he finds it there will be political tremors This adventure involves two underwater wrecks a ship sunk in the St Lawrence River and a train buried beneath the Hudson River A really fun read


    26. Not bad A bit of a knockoff as Cussler attempts to rope James Bond into things the secret agent is now retired, approaching 70 and under an assumed name so the Russians won t come after him The plot is rather scatter shot as well But, still the typical Dirk Pitt romp around the globe and through a variety of impossible hijinks Woo.


    27. Another fun outing with Dirk Pitt This adventure involved a missing treaty between the US and England that gave Canada to the United States Two copies were written one is at the bottom of St Lawrence River, the other went down with a train when a bridge collapsed Dirk must find the document so that the president of the US can created a United States of Canada Lots of fun.


    28. 07 12 This one was I think my favorite of the Dirk Pitt ones so far Its weird though that we ve been part of the United States of Canada for a couple decades now and no one knows it Mostly I remember reading this one while riding my motorcycle over East Canyon Pass then down the Jeremy Ranch Rd, then down I80 home.


    29. It s a Clive Cussler novel So you are going to get a rollicking adventure story with an enjoyable protagonist This is one of my favourite Cussler novels as the premise of the North American treaty is a enjoyable idea for a story Reading Clive Cussler is like watching a Hollywood blockbuster, it may not be a life changing experience but you will probably be smiling for most of the ride.
