I apologize if I offend anyone with this post,but the fact that
in "Pacific Vortex" Pitt never makes love to Summer Moran. Either one
of them is unconscious at all of their meetings,or so injured that
lovemaking would be impossible.
I have just finished the LARGE Print edition of PV,just to check if I
had missed anything in the regular print publication. Apart from the
large print using English spelling (colour) and expressions (good show )
LP only described Pitt's fight with Summer on the beach and in the
hotel room,Summer's sneaking a knife to him when Delphi's men try to
kill him in the same hotel room,Pitts' finding Summer's sleeping
quarters inside the seamount ( and immediately passing out on the
carpet),awakening to find himslf in the clutches of Delphi,escaping the
seamount with Summer through the golden pool where they briefly
embraced and exchanged vows of love and Pitt immediately leads her by
the hand to the exit to the sea,Summer's insistance that Pitt exit
first,then Summer's intentional return to the seamount to be with her
Using Pitt's remarkable perception and logic,I suggest that Summer
returned to find her true lover,not to be with her father. Not being
able to find him,she managed to escape,bear and raise the lover's twins,
never making contact with Pitt ,but telling the twins that Dirk was
thetheir father. And,of course,they went to him when Summer Moran died.
It could be,of course,that author Cussler had no inkling of creating
the Pitt twins until much later on in the series,and he simply could
not publish and addendum to Pacific Vortex.
Just to allay any suspicions that I'm trying to criticize author
Cussler,I read avery book he writes as soon as they become available
and I enjoy the way in which he plays with our heads. Besides,any man
who has the automobile collection he does is by that fact alone,and
incredible person indeed.
