Publisher's Summary

NUMA crew leaders Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala must beat the clock to stop the world's most dazzling new technological advance from becoming mankind's last in this action-packed thriller from the New York Times best-selling grand master of adventure.

When the most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are drawn into a deadly contest to locate the fallen machine. Russia and China covet the radical technology, but the United States worries about a darker problem. They know what others don't - that the X-37 is carrying a dangerous secret, a payload of exotic matter extracted from the upper reaches of the atmosphere and stored at a temperature near absolute zero. As long as it remains frozen, the cargo is inert, but if it thaws, it will unleash a catastrophe of nearly unthinkable proportions.

From the Galapagos Islands to the jungles of South America to an icy mountain lake many believe to be the birthplace of the Inca, the entire NUMA team will risk everything in an effort to avert disaster...but they may be caught in a race that no one can win.

    Story
    "Just okay for me."

    Unfortunately, Cussler is getting boring. This is the same story with the same gorgeous genius working with the gorgeous NUMA people and of course she's keeping some sort of secret. There's also the submersible getting stuck under water, the bad guy who reveals his diabolical plot before dying, and whatever else has been in every NUMA File book. That said, the space plane plot was sorta fun and the ending was a bit humorous. It's not horrible but not awesome. Listening while gardening or doing chores works with this story.

    Story
    "not up to par"

    I generally love the NUMA stories and was eager to start my summer with this one.
    Joe and Kurt had their usual banter but much felt canned. The story just didn't have the meat of previous ones. seemed a bit too contrived and a but far fetched, even for NUMA. New characters didn't get developed to a point that you really cared one way or another about them.
    lt waa okay but I hope the next will be more like previous books with great New characters and plenty of the NUMA family.

    Story
    "Love Clive Cussler"
    Would you listen to Nighthawk again? Why?

    No. I am not good at listening or reading a book a second time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like all of Clive Cussler's books. they are well written and keep you interested.


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

    He was easy to listen to and the book was interesting. However, at times he actually sounded like he was reading and not telling a story as some of the others that I have listened to.


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

    No. It takes me a while to listen to an entire story, as I only listen when I am driving or working out.

    Story
    "You know what you're getting, but it's still very satisfying."

    As a long time Clive Cussler fan, i've always known that I would have to suspend a significant amount of disbelief in order to enjoy his work, so that's exactly what I do. And I still enjoy the stories. Yes, some of the physics and science involved are pretty shaky, but it's fiction, right? Another very engaging story, with solid narration. As a narrator of several books on Audible myself, I've always enjoyed Scott Brick's interpretation of Cussler's work.

    "Nighthawk is a book to read/listen"

    Bravo! Another  Cussler masterpiece. The narrator was able to keep the listener on the edge of their seat showing emotions that kept you riveted to the story. The idea of getting anti-matter from earths magnetic field was a stroke of genius. It was an excellent balance of drama and comedy which brought the story  to a delightful and sarcastic conclusion.
