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.

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.

Pretty good story

I like how the author tied historical facts into the story. Lots of action, reminds me of James Bond type story. Scott Brick is an OK reader, his delivery can be too dramatic.

Cussler does it again

What made the experience of listening to The Rising Sea the most enjoyable?

Great plot that that never really slows down, a history lesson in every book, better than any school class.

Even when the action was slower the comedy relief was there to keep the interest high

Samurai, Robots and Rising Oceans...oh my!

The audible Cussler books are family favorites. Exciting adventures laced with scientific and technical detail and read superbly...what's not to like?
