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.

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!
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.
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 liked the different characters and action packed.
I am always a sucker for the "Good Guys" winning.
Yes, Cussler is a expert at keeping you on edge of seat.
Scott Brick is one of my favorites. In fact, often I will go to audio books he has narrated.
He always brings the characters to life.
There were a lot of moments. There are many likeable characters and others you just hate!!!
I liked the touching moment at end with Olivia and the possibility of redemption.
Calista's meeting with Kurt in the stateroom on D'Costa's yacht. Couldn't figure out how that one would turn out til the last second.
Everything! Scott's the man. Great dialects and mood creation.
You saw it. Or did you?
Creative twist for the NUMA crew. Some of the history of the ship got a little tedious, but hey.. it's Clive! And that's Clive's love! Plot was interesting, and tied together very well at the end.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
I love the way cussler writes and have for years, is this one of his best books, no, but its a good book. much better book than a lot of other books out there. A cussler book is like coming home to friends.
The Ghost Ship by Clive Cussler is another in his Numa series that takes the reader worldwide in solving the mystery of missing Numa personnel, ancient artifacts, espionage and even more. Always a good read, Cussler starts the book running and doesn’t stop until the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Yes, I believe this book was an exception to the writing excellence of prior Cussler books.
I listen to many authors and had enjoyed the tales of NUMA.
The author included too many quips between the main NUMA characters that were distracting and equally unrealistic.
The story was interesting but labored. Scott Brick makes the most of a story line that is distracting.
