Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 14th incredible Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler. 

Tracking a notorious Chinese smuggler's activities leads Dirk Pitt from Washington State to Louisiana, where his quarry is constructing a huge shipping port in the middle of nowhere. Why has he chosen this unlikely location? 

The trail then leads to the race to find the site of the mysterious sinking of the ship that Chiang Kai-shek filled with treasure when he fled China in 1949, including the legendary boxes containing the bones of Peking Man that had vanished at the beginning of World War I. As Pitt prepares for a final showdown, he is faced with the most formidable foe he has ever encountered....

Brick is Brilliant!

Great story, Dirk is full of fun and Al as well. Loved hearing the Oregon story. Please get the other dozen or so books on audible as soon as possible.

What a FABULOUS book - Clive Cussler at his BEST!

Scott Brick was absolutely at the top of his performance! Adventure after adventure - WOW! I love Clive’s little performance - really clever! His mind is an ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT! How can one human being imagine all the tales? He is certainly ONE OF A KIND!

I was a bit confused, but then, it’s a re release

Juan Cabrillo is in this one too, and he had both legs....for a while. A 486 computer was dating it so now I knew something was up. Looking back it I found out it was first released 9-97. That being said it was a very good listen, just think prequel if you didn’t read it before and you’ll be fine.

Unnaturally predictable

Scott Brick at his usual best
Unfortunately the story line was not the normal cussler.
Yes, some great moments
Yes, the usual laughs
But the heroin - talk about a naive women unable to read the writing on the wall. And dirk pitt seems to fall for her anyway - despite losing his love just 1 month earlier.

Most cussler stories start with some historical reference, or even an Archeological find - not this one. In flood tide we get right into the evil provacateur and his evil ways, only to have the major archeological discovery come, and get wrapped up in a chapter or two near the end.

Still love cussler, and if this is the worst it gets, then I'm grateful

easy listening

good story and performance although rather predictable plot, that's all I wanted to say but it insists on 7 more words.

Awesome.

I've received read many Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novels in the past I, Flood Tide needed to be added to the list. Scott brick has the ability to narrate a novel and it's like going to the films absolutely awesome. as always Clive Cussler is on form as many people say of his earlier works. I however enjoy all of it. I highly recommend this book as an exciting adventure story and the audible as a very necessary companion to swap and change amongst read/listen.

Dragged out story line.

Story is good although dragged out in places.

Especially the efforts to stop the ship. One carefully placed air to ship missile would have would have stopped it.
