The dazzling new novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling series from Clive Cussler, the grand master of adventure.
When Kurt Austin is injured attempting to rescue the passengers and crew from a sinking yacht, he wakes with fragmented and conflicted memories. Did he see an old friend and her children drown? Or was the yacht abandoned when he came aboard? For reasons he cannot explain, Kurt doesn't trust either version of his recollection.
Determined to know the truth, he begins to search for answers, and soon finds himself descending into a shadowy world of state-sponsored cybercrime, and uncovering a pattern of vanishing scientists, suspicious accidents, and a web of human trafficking. With the help of Joe Zavala, he takes on the sinister organization at the heart of this web, facing off with them in locations ranging from Monaco to North Korea to the rugged coasts of Madagascar. But where he will ultimately end up - even he could not begin to guess.

Top of the list! One of the best Kurt Austin books. Must read novel!
Enjoy the factual descriptive narration from the simple facts from the storyline, to the breakdown of the contents there were discovered upon to go ship?
Narrator did outstanding job!
NOTHING! WOW, so many outstanding story lines. I liked how the female combatant interacted with Kurt Austin on and off through the book. Scott Brick makes the characters come to life and you can visualize the events as the storyline goes along.
If you're hesitant about reading a Clive Cussler book, this surely is a can't miss for first or long time readers of the Numa files... I rate this work right along with IQ 84, and Sycamore Row, as some of the top audible performances that I have in my library.
A great yarn!
This was a more sophisticated story from Cussler. His books are always entertaining but this one didn't require the total suspension of belief that most do.
Scott is a steady presence and a favorite of mine. With these works he does tend to over dramatize some of the dialogue, though.
Throughout the book I was thinking, "this isn't your father's Cussler book."
Great story and very well crafted!
the story never really picked up into the heat and excitement of his other titles.
I would have covered more of the ghost ship. It was not a big enough part of the story

I am in my private world while listening to a Cussler book narrated by Scott Brick. I have listened to, or read many Clive Cussler books, and have not once been disappointed. Ghost Ship is one of the best. I was sure several times that Kurt Austin was a goner, but somehow he managed to stay alive to save others in mortal danger. Can't go wrong with this one!
Inventive fantasy based on history. enjoyed the mix of believable characters with villains with unbelievable demonic whims. I like the way the main characters play off each other with endearing sarcasm and yet respect.
I have a great passion for life and enjoy books that make you think
The story had many twists and kept you engaged! Scott Brick is always a great narrator!
I always enjoy Clive Cussler's books. Kurt's character head gotten emotionally stale, and though he seems to be developing in that regard, his story plots now seem somewhat predictable.
Scott Brick's narration is superb as always, though he doesn't have a voice for children's characters, unfortunately.
It is only occasionally that you find a combination so perfect that you can't imagine a time when one was without the other...peanut butter and jelly, Tom & Jerry, Cussler & Brick! While no one would accuse Clive Cussler's books of being overly sophisticated and certainly not pretentious; they are, however, consistently entertaining, full of fun plot twists, and informational enough to let you learn a little about obscure historical events and cutting edge technology (without being a Tom Clancy-ish thriller)! And what more needs to be said about Scott Brick, although many don't like him, I feel that he has become apart of my family and daily routine and there isn't anyone that I would rather have reading Cussler's books than him!
