It contains some kind of germ warfare. Now years later, some group wants to use it for their own ends. The Dirks Pitt and company have to save us all again! Pretty exciting. Most of the book focuses on Dirk Jr. View 1 comment. May 14, Kat Powell rated it did not like it. You know what you're getting with a Clive Cussler novel.

The format's all a bit 'cut and paste' - whoever is introduced in the first section will die and leave behind some dastardly way of destroying the world, then NUMA will stumble across it and almost avert disaster but the baddies will win round one and then all the same cat and mouse will happen again but this time NUMA will save the world in the nick of time. Still usually the series is a good escapist read but this one was just F You know what you're getting with a Clive Cussler novel.

Far, far too long and drawn out, with long dull breaks in the action. When there was action, although as unbelievable as ever, it lacked the humour and character development to pull it through. One of my main irritations with this book is that Cussler has written himself in as a character. View 2 comments. In the 's, during the days of World War II, a Japanese-class Submarine carrying a deadly bio-virus, is approaching the United States, planning to unleash the virus on the unsuspecting US.

They successfully reach the US Northwest Coast, but are stopped by the Navy before they can carry out their attack, and the Sub is sunk along with the virus, not seen again for many years to come.

As they grow closer to what they're dealing with, they realize they're up against more than they've bargained for, a deadly virus lost at sea for many years, and a ruthless Japanese terrorist group who themselves are searching for the sunken wreckage. Nothing new for Clive, just another fun-packed action-adventure!! And once again Clive Cussler himself makes a cameo, as he has in many of his other books! Sep 10, Matt rated it it was amazing.

    A fun- but long- adventure story, written in true Clive Cussler fashion. North Korea, biological weapons and space rockets highlight this novel. Like all Cussler novels it has a truly satisfying ending. Jun 22, Christian D. More entertaining the second time around I enjoyed "Black Wind" more on this go-around than I did the first time I read it circa , partially because the plot line seems more timely than ever now with North Korea being such a major news item, but there are still some technical gaffes explained below and the lack of edginess so prevalent in the classic Cussler novels of the s and 80s that prevent me from giving the novel a full 5 stars.

    So, even back then and in non-U. Lookup "Laissez le bons temps rouler? Our own steel tariffs may still get in the way of an agreement. Or does Dirk actually know how to read Kanji?

    Black Wind A Dirk Pitt Novel Dirk Pitt Adventure

    Cheesy beyond all reasoning. If you like seeing super-classic evil dudes with nefarious plots waging war against chivalrous, daring, uber-lucky, hyper-intelligent when they aren't putting themselves in danger for absolutely no reason , lady-killer heroes who can do everything James Bond can without any of the training even make corny puns, like "I was the one who was shaken and stirred" after escaping a wrecked submarine and considering the appeal of a cocktail If you like realism or being surprised once in a while, maybe not.

    Another fun read from Cussler with the usual cast of characters and all the action and adventure you expect. These are always interesting books. I enjoy the history melding with the current time. The characters are always fun. The narrator did an excellent job as well. Jun 26, Fredrick Danysh rated it liked it. A North Korean agent has become a billionaire in South Korean. Hundreds of thousands of lives are at stake.

    Sep 11, Cameron rated it it was ok. I read a lot of Clive Cussler books many years back and remembered thoroughly enjoying them so decided to pick one up again. I don't know if my tastes have changed or these books were always so predictable, but Black Wind was eye rollingly bad.

    The outcome was apparent from page 1 and all the characters are infallible super heroes. May 19, Dale rated it liked it. Predictable - near death at every corner but a box cutter and bowling ball took out a tank and a nuclear bomb. Jul 24, LadyCroft86 rated it really liked it. Another Dirk Pitt adventure but this one was a little different in that Dirk Pitt Jr is the main character.

    Dirk Pitt Sr is almost a secondary character, which is a fine way of aging him and allowing him to pass on his adventuring legacy to his son and daughter. There was a little bit of confusion with both the Dirks in the book, mainly knowing which one was which when they were both together. For the most part, "Dirk" is referring to junior Pitt and "Pitt" refers to the senior Pitt. I also like Another Dirk Pitt adventure but this one was a little different in that Dirk Pitt Jr is the main character.

    I also liked that Giordino made an appearance in this book as well, since he is my favorite character and I thought he wouldn't really be in the books anymore. Summer Pitt is also a somewhat major character although she doesn't do much. I was hoping that Dirk Pitt Sr having a daughter would be a great reason to have a tough, badass female character as part of the series, but it doesn't seem to be the case with Summer.

    I don't know if that is because Cussler doesn't know how to write for a strong, stand-out female character or if he just doesn't think women can kick as much as as the men in his books. In any case, at least there is a female character that isn't just another flat and boring politician or bad guy. Dahlgren, Dirk Pitt Jr's friend is almost an exact copy of Giordino, which is good in some parts, since Giordino is my favorite character and bad in others mainly that he is just a copy of another character. This seems to say to me that Cussler has a hard time coming up with unique characters and is content just making copies of characters that he already has and giving them different names.

    The action and excitement in this book is about the same as the other books, nonstop and very unrealistic.

    Black Wind (Cussler novel) - Wikipedia

    It certainly makes for a very entertaining read, but if you want reality I would go ahead and skip the whole series. The Pitts, Giordino and Dahlgren have so many close calls as to be ridiculous. They almost always escape but not without the excitement of possibly dying. Which, of course, you know they won't die. This is definitely not for everyone, it is basically and action movie on paper. The bad guys are stereotypically bad, the good guys are very good and always have some trick up their sleeve that allows them to win. Almost all of the Dirk Pitt books follow the same pattern and it can almost be said that if you have read one of them, you have read them all.

    However, this is what I like about these books, they are just a fun, exciting, if predictable ride that allows you to escape from the monotony of everyday life. In this particular book, Korea is looking to get unified but without the United States interfering.

    Black Wind: Dirk Pitt #18

    So they come up with a nefarious plot to release a deadly virus to distract the US while a Korean bad guy tries to unite and take over his country. There are car chases, deep sea dives, SEAL team missions, gun fights and lots of intrigue and mystery. Overall 4 out of 5 stars.

    One of the more exciting Dirk Pitt books from the series so far. Mar 04, Britt Lovelady rated it liked it.

The Cussler men figure this out and come close to being killed but eventually save the day and Dirk gets to go on a date with one of the women he saves. Well, some things never change. I give it a B-. Feb 27, Jenn rated it did not like it Recommended to Jenn by: nick. Ok, now that I've gotten that out of my system, let's be a little more coherent, eh?

    Black Wind would have been a decent book if it werent for the author himself.
