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
Once again...like an over the top campfire story. Too much fun.
I think I've read every Cussler now.

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.
