Publisher's Summary

Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

In the final minutes of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he had never known, 23-year-old fraternal twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer, is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a marine engineer. And now they are about to help their father in the adventure of a lifetime.

There is a brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua. The twins are working in a NUMA underwater enclosure, trying to determine its origin, when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient; and the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight not only for them but also for a luxurious floating resort hotel square in its path.

The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable, and, desperately, Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA crew rush to the rescue, but what they find in the storm's wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and the brown tide is only a by-product of its plan. Soon, its work will be complete, and the world will be a very different place.

Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place.

Critic Reviews

"This novel offers precisely what listeners have come to expect from a Dirk Pitt adventure: danger, heroics, villains, heroes." (Booklist)
"The action never flags, the heroics never halt, and the bodies pile up as Pitt and Co. take on the villains; some big changes in Pitt's personal life close the book." (Publishers Weekly)

Trojan Odyssey

In the wonderful style of Clive Cussler, this book is fast paced- a "can't put it down" book. Ron McLarty is an excellent reader, making the characters come alive. A fully enjoyable ride.

I Maybe Hooked

My first Dirk Pitt book. It was pretty good story and characters. The focus is very nautical based on my limited knowledge on the topic it seems accurate. I'm definitely getting book #18!!

Happy Day!!!!
