Cyclops, by Clive Cussler
His desire to save perfect strangers embroils him in a plot that has bigger secrets than any he has ever encountered before. His ability to see through subterfuge, his calm in stressful situations, and his unique way of approaching problems make Pitt the perfect addition to a plot that threatens possession of the moon, of Cuba, and the very principles and strengths of America.
Because of his vast aircraft experience combined with his NUMA expertise, Pitt is a logical choice to retrace the route last taken by financier Raymond LeBaron. It is his blimp that appeared in front of Pitt during the race, and now Pitt is a passenger, heading toward what he believes to be sunken treasure.
He believes they are looking for the Cyclops, and cusslre treasure aboard, the La Dorada. They are taken close to the shores of Cuba.

They are prepared for xyclops event, and while they are in the vicinity, they dive down to the Cyclops to see if her treasure is still aboard. Back on the surface, they face a hurricane, a treacherous boat ride to a nearby island, and a very unfriendly greeting from the Soviet military who are part of a top secret military installment on an island just a couple hundred miles off the coast of Florida.
Pitt escapes back to the U. They are just in time to save the lunar colonists who have secretly created Jersey Colony on the moon, a colony the Russian intend to seize. The Russians are foiled on the moon, and then Pitt further ruins their plan by reaching the space shuttle before she attempts to land in Cuba and be shot down by friendly fire.
Cyclops Summary & Study Guide
Once his friends are rescued, Pitt and Jessie head back to the military ship, but Jessie has other ideas and with a gun at his chest, they turn toward Cuba. Once the two men are out of office, the Russians intend to take over Castro’s regime and establish a Soviet foothold in the Western Hemisphere.
Because Dirk Pitt is involved, the Russian plan does not go as planned. There is an explosion, and while it does kill a few people, it does not cause the vast devastation that is required for the Soviets to take over Cuba. Finally, Pitt is able to continue his search for La Dorada, the fabled female statue that is to have the heart of a ruby and a head and hair of an emerald. Once Pitt saves the world, he can finally finish his initial task of locating La Dorada.
