Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Fabulous!"
    If you could sum up Ghost Ship in three words, what would they be?

    A great yarn!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott is a steady presence and a favorite of mine. With these works he does tend to over dramatize some of the dialogue, though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Throughout the book I was thinking, "this isn't your father's Cussler book."


    Any additional comments?

    Great story and very well crafted!

    "GHOSTLY OUTSTANDING"
    Where does Ghost Ship rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of the list! One of the best Kurt Austin books. Must read novel!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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?


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Narrator did outstanding job!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I enjoyed it from frustrating beginning to end"

    Good grief. They're dead, they're alive. They're here, no they're there. I nearly always enjoy Cussler's books but this is one of my favorites. There are no "givens" other than the fact that Joe would be a hoot to get into trouble with. And the magnetic legs climbing up the side of the yacht. Lots of wonderful fantasy ideas but much reality comes from fantasy!

    "Great as Always"

    Scott Brick is by far my favorite narrator and the combination of him with one of my favorite authors is always a success. I much prefer the Fargo adventures but the NUMA series is beginning to grow on me. I love the sense of adventure and espionage that is readily available in any Cussler story. I purchased another one to start on next!

    "Goast Ship is an excellent listen."

    I am forever a fan of the books written by Cussler. As campy as they are.
    However, this book was nit campy. It had hot sauce all over it.
    The good guys win.
    That's what I want.

    Story
    "send in the cavalry"

    Story was a bit too far fetched with story of an old vessel overgrown with a crocodile on it...
    Otherwise lots of twists and turns. Guessed the girl was not related to the bad guys early on.

    "Always a good time!!"

    I love the series because I always learn something new reading these! However, I wish Scott Brick wouldn't use his animosity tone so much. I really don't think it is necessary for all conversation with evil geniuses or rivals.

    "Not bad"

    I enjoyed the book, narration and story line. However, I didn't enjoy the cliche and predictable dialogue between the characters. It seemed like the writer was trying to write words the characters might have said in other books but it was often sappy. The humor wasn't funny. The dialogue seemed unoriginal. I found it quite annoying. But otherwise it wasn't a bad listen.
