In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames.
A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there on the smoldering hulk of the ship will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known: a plan to permanently alter the weather on a global scale. It will kill millions... and it has already begun.
Filled with the boundless invention unique to Clive Cussler, this is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

Many Cussler books are easy to follow as the pattern is the same in all of them. Every now and then he throws in a few surprises.
No. The only book that I have ever relistened is Quantum of Solace. Ian Flemming.
Marchelli, The first new main character that I can remember.
When Kirk landed on the Island and was introduced to to the pain machine.
Just another great Clusser novel.
Microbots were a bit of a streach.
The historic aspects as well as the possible future science. Great fun.
Funny imitation arabs
either i did not download the entire book (2 sections) or this story just abruptly ends. what a disappointment.
yes, but depends on the ending
am i missing part of tbe book? sure seems like it.
I spend about four hours per day on the road. Audio books make my commute go by much faster and make it somewhat enjoyable.
This was my first listen from this author. I was very impressed and will buy more books by Clive Cussler in the future!
Did not care for the story, and found the dialog trite and similar to a C-rated movie script!
Will not choose this author again.
Not to my thinking. It was pretty much a waste of time. Did I learn anything? No. Did I experience anything new? No.
Even though I like Sci-Fi this book was not my cup of tea.
I really enjoy the talents of Scott Brick as he reads the book and brings the characters to life.
The other Cussler "NUMA Files" novels are similar to this one
His talents for giving each character their own personality and voice, really helps the listener follow the story and understand what's going on.
Love Audible! Besides that, have a great husband, 3 married kids and 5 perfect grandchildren! Live in Houston and love STL Cardinals!!!
This audio book kept me on the edge of my seat. I was fascinated by the concept, and just a little bit frightened of the plausibility.
Another wonderful, improbable Cussler story!! If you like NUMA stories you should love this one. Probably too close to someday reality.
