A Sunday Times best seller.

The 11th classic Dirk Pitt novel, where the adventurer is drawn to a secret in the burning African desert, which could destroy all life in the world's seas. 

Deep in the African desert, Dirk Pitt discovers that a top secret scientific installation is leaking a lethal chemical into the rivers, threatening to kill thousands of people - and to destroy all life in the world's seas.  

To warn the world of the catastrophe, Pitt must escape capture and death at the hands of a ruthless West African dictator and French industrialist and undertake a long, perilous journey across the merciless Sahara....

Great story but has a technical issue

The story is very good and Scott Brick does a great job. I would give 5 stars but I’m only giving 4 because chapter 39 is incomplete. If that is fixed then I will adjust my rating

absolutely great.

I listened while driving a trash truck and it's the only time that I wish I could work longer than a usual 12.5 hour day.

From Lee

The narrator of any book on tape makes the entire adventure come alive. This narrator does just that. Thank you.

A waste of a free credit

Though an interesting concept, the story, plot and worst of all the characters are just awful.
This is a rare case wherein the film is far superior to the book upon which it is based.

The characters are two dimensional at best, and tired, racist/sexist stereotypes at worst. The main character of Dirk Pitt apparently has every skill and obscure bit of knowledge known to man, as well as being an unresistable Adonis to men and women alike. I would say that Clive Cussler is projecting himself onto Pitt except for the awful moment in which he actually inserts himself, name and all, into the narrative as a Deus Ex Machina that essentially saves the day and points the protagonists in the exact right direction.

If you like American exceptionalism and cultural whitewashing then this is the book for you.

I really enjoy the dirk Pitt Srries

I really have enjoyed the dirk Pitt series, the humour, action and stories have been remarkable.

Unfortunately it’s been annoying waiting for books to come out on audible in the right order, having to wait for earlier stories to come out after the latest book has been released is more than annoying.

This book has been superb, I have been waiting for this one for a long time, and it’s been worth the wait. Now it’s just waiting for the rest of them!!

Thank you for a great series, great characters and fantastic adventures.
