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!

    Story
    "for a change of pace,"

    One of Cusslers better recent books, the story is unique in the NUMA universe as the plot DOESN'T have the entire planet in immediate peril. It's closer to a spy/intrigue novel than his typical apocalypse averted yarn.

    Kurt Austin FINALLY has some level of depth to his character other than a Dirk Pitt clone. He enters the story carrying a full load of baggage and personal injury, and seems drawn into the plot rather than shoehorned in by circumstance as is often the case.

    The introduction of a new female character as a foil to Austin, with an atypical resolution, was actually one of the better elements to this story. This wasn't another "the bad guys get their comeuppance in the end" Cussler ride (although some do), Characters are revealed to be more than two dimensional firing range targets.

    I liked it. I hope to see more of the newly introduced Characters in more than just a passing manner.

    Story
    "I wanted to like it but....blahhhhhhh"
    What would have made Ghost Ship better?

    It could have never been written. That would have made it better.
    I could only listen to a few hours. But the story just was so....stupid. I was hoping to like the author. But now i don't even want to pick up another book just to give him a shot. Mr. Cussler is obviously popular, but this book just sucks.


    Has Ghost Ship turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has turned me off to the author. I really wanted a great adventure novel but this was all around dumb.


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s voice?

    I don't recall his voice.


    What character would you cut from Ghost Ship?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Move along. There is nothing to read here.

    Story
    "interesting but Cheesy"

    The concept of a group or government being able to wreak havoc on the earth through manipulation of computer systems is all too real and scary in today's world but the story line seems to follow an unrealistic but predictable path.

    The dialogue between characters is cheesy and old school with the attempt at humor reminding me of a cross between the old "Batman " television series and a John Wayne movie.

    As always, Scott Brick is the consummate professional.
