It is July 2003. In the middle of its maiden voyage, the luxury cruise ship Emerald Dolphin suddenly catches fire and sinks....
What's so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top secret scientific project that could change the world forever.
And that's before the surprises really begin.
Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler's hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive's best yet.
I first read of NUMA in Polar Shift. The Navigator grabbed me just as hard and fast. I love the adventure. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The background created was very detailed. The characters interesting and diverse. Sometimes confusing as to whom they are. All together it is an engrossing book and keeps you in suspense all the way until the end. All the build up and drops the ball at the end. Rushed through that does not compare to all the rest of the material.I do recommend this book, even though Mr. Cussler has better.

It seems that listening to Mr. Cusslers books one must be prepared to hear of some great feats by the main characters or situations. This book requires a giant imagination of both! I have listened to many of Clive's books and have thoroughly almost almost all...! This one I really must give just an "OK"....

If you could sum up The Navigator in three words, what would they be?
Exciting, action and awesome
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes. The reading by Richard Ferrone makes it that way.
What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Emotion and varying voice controls
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?

Hey!! I wanted to listen to Ferrone. Your description said the narrator was "Richard Ferrone", but the down load I got was by Scott Brick. Not the same. ??????????????????????

Not a fan of putting a hair brained spin on King Solomon or the 10 commandments or Moses.. It's bad enough Cussler puts all that millions of years garbage in most all his books. Otherwise it could've been a great book.
I was disappointed with the lack of thrilling ends for the bad guys. Luring somebody, bad guy or not, under the water then trapping him is murder. Not the best effort on character development. I liked the overall storyline.
I was on an Issac Bell kick for a bit and it made me long for the brash, come hell or high water attitude of Kurt and Numa. love how they make it happen.
Loved it, as usual, Custler takes a bit of history and crafts a masterful story around it.
A James Bond style story with some totally improbable decision making to put our hero into action. Could have been a decent story with some interesting history as background. But then the hero agrees to exchange himself for the damsel in distress, with virtually no backup. Why?
I haven't read any other of his books, and don't think I'll bother.
The reader had the annoying approach of trying a Mexican accent for gevala. Sounded more like a comic imitation of a Mafia wise guy.
