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.

Always an Adventure

Even though the basic storylines for most Clive Cussler books are predictable (historical backstory, modern problem, bad guys bent on world domination, insanely awesome protagonist, etc.), the books are always an enjoyable listen. This story in particular discussed the Chinese and Japanese cultures and history as a premise for the historical background. Even though Kirt Austin is going to win and be awesome while doing it, the story has some unique twists and turns. All-in-all, I loved being a part of the adventure.

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.

This is a fantastic book

The Rising Sea has to be one of my favorite Cussler books. It kept me interested all the way through. I’m only one reviewer, but I’d recommend this one.

Good adventure!

Lots of fun! I like that Kurt Austin isn't infallible and actually fails at stuff.
