Publisher's Summary

Everywhere, the waters are rising - and that is just the beginning of the world's peril, unless the NUMA crew can beat the clock. It's the thrilling new NUMA Files novel from the number-one New York Times best-selling grand master of adventure.

An alarming rise in the world's sea levels - much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt - sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers. What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined: a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power - and in the process displace as many as a billion people.

A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of 500-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin - from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

Numa

Another great story from Clive Cussler regarding the crew from NUMA.
I have read most of the series written by Clive Cussler and his assistants, and have enjoyed them all.

Hollywood Movie

It is like a 007 movie where the main characters knows to do almost everything from driving fast cars to use weapons and of course to fight Mano a mano.

Fun, but not nearly one of Clive Cussler's best.

I've read just about all of Clive Cussler's books. Some I've read two times. a few, I have read 3 *one book I read four times. This book is a one read. it is still better than anything on TV.

Not really classic Cussler

Pretty weak story line with factual missteps. I have read a lot of Cussler. This was the weakest by far.

Science so so

Geology is weak but but story was good . A bare wire wrapped around a metal nail—- really?

Excellent yarn for the season

Clive Cussler brings another page turner to Life with The Rising Sea. All of the characters we as readers have come to live are once again brought to life in adventure and suspense. Would love to see this tale on the big screen. Another win for Kurt and his team.

Cussler et.al. never disappoints

Once again Cussler and friends take you on a roller coaster ride with action every minute. excellent story and a very believeable scenario.
