Publisher's Summary

The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times best-selling series from the grand master of adventure.

It is called zero point energy, and it really exists - a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however - until one scientist discovers a way.

Or at least he thinks he has. The problem is, his machines also cause great earthquakes, even fissures in tectonic plates. One machine is buried deep underground; the other is submerged in a vast ocean trench. If Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala and the rest of the NUMA team aren't able to find and destroy them, and soon, the world will be on the threshold of a new era of earth tremors and unchecked volcanism.

Now, that can't be good.

    "Typical Cussler"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Good book, but it is so projected as most of Cussler's are you know what the end will be.

    "What a Ride!"
    What made the experience of listening to Zero Hour the most enjoyable?

    I've read many Clive Cussler books and this one didn't disappoint. A thrilling ride right to the end. Scott Brick is exceptional, again. His voices make the characters come alive.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kurt Austin is a great character and so was Joe.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is phenomenal. He even managed to impersonate a character with a burned out voice box. Incredible. Even the female voices are believable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Keep it Zero Hour.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read. Thanks.

    Story
    "Cussler strikes again"
    What did you love best about Zero Hour?

    I have never been disappointed when reading Cussler, from the first book, Mediteranian Caper, all the way thru his vast collection, he holds your interest. I have been found by my wife, sitting in the driveway after arriving home from work, still listening, not wanting to turn it off till the chapter ends. Way to go Clive!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Hour?

    Can't choose just one.... They all roll together into one fantastic tale!


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill has an amazing voice, but the first book I listened to that Scott Brick narrated, I realized that he was made to read Cussler.... Awesome!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely

    "predictable"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The zero energy premise is interesting, but the story was really predictable. Still a satisfying listen.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Scott Brick does great with all the characters.

    "Zero Hour - Best Kurt Austin Book Ever"
    Where does Zero Hour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Hour?

    Bringing Tesla into the story. So few people know what a genius he was and how he got screwed over by Edison.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Joe Zavala


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, Absoloutely


    Any additional comments?

    Clive Cussler is my favorite autor ever since I read Raise the Titanic. He started to get repetitive and predictable. His style came back with the Bell Series. They are wonderful and now he has brought Kurt Austin back into the fold.
