    While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery - but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artefact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt - but only one can win.

    Overall this book has been a good read and for fans of Clive Cussler it's certainly worthwhile in the collection. That said however, I found Scott's voice to be a little monotone at times but overall he did a good job with the book. His accents were 3 out of 5 but when portraying female characters it was not the best - at time I had to force myself to imagine a woman behind the strong male toned voice.

    As for the story line this was a little weak for me especially compared to what I have come to expect from such a great best-selling author like Clive Cussler. That said, however, I did enjoy the book and am glad I purchased it.

    Following on from the bestselling Next, Michael Crichton's new novel will repeat the winning formula established with novels such as Jurassic Park: to identify future trends in science and imagine the most astonishing - and terrifying - possibilities that they hold for Mankind. Always interesting, often controversial, Next and State of Fear put him straight back in the headlines - and bestseller charts - and reaffirmed his position as the thriller master.

    Overall

    When I first decided on this book I was a bit skeptical. Being a big pirate-genre as well as historical-genre fan I'm always on the lookout for a great fiction read which still contains the historic details that make the era which one is reading about so much more interesting. This book does just that. Michael Crichton has once again written a book which will become a permanent fixture on many book shelves. Intrigue, suspense, action, adventure, amazing depth of personality in each of the characters made this book a 5 star read for me.

    The narration by John Bedford Lloyd deserves a further 5 stars. His amazing talent at defining each and every character in this book left me truly amazed, especially when it came to the swift yet smooth changed between both characters and the various accents required.

    If you enjoy a good adventure read, something as good as Jurassic Park, then this is the book for you!
