An enzyme that could dramatically prolong life has been discovered in the North Atlantic - under two thousand feet of icy water in an area known as the "Lost City." But why are the people attempting to harvest its secrets dying mysteriously? Why are scientists from a remote Greek laboratory disappearing one by one? And what does all of this have to do with a body found frozen in the ice high up in the Alps?

To a family of ruthless French arms dealers, the Lost City is the key to world domination. To Kurt Austin, leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team, and his colleague Joe Zavala, it's clear they have their work cut out for them. But this job may be even bigger than they think - in fact, it may be their greatest, and deadliest, challenge of all. . .

"Cussler twist fact and ficition into a rope of tension that will leave you dangling until the last page!"

Another Clive Cussler win, this book is a great read and one you don't want to put down. It has plane crashes, glaciers, underwater action, and strange things happening. If you need a thriller and a book to lose yourself in, this is the one.

This is yet another superb action/adventure story from the pens of Cussler/Kemprecos. Pens sounds better than word processer/computer, right?
The story framework is a good one about a substance found 2000 feet down in the Atlantic Ocean that prolongs life. There is plenty of murder and mayhem along the way to keep the usual familiar cast of characters busy battling the bad guys.
A good entertaining read!

if you have read cussler's dirk pitt character then you will like kurt austin. the book is thick but a real page turner. so many plots go round til they are all caught up and resolved.
This is about eternal life, bad guys,threat to the worlds seas, beasts and scientists dying in droves . this is a great adventure read.

Another fun book in the Kurt Austin series. While the premise is perhaps a bit far-fetched, the pace is good, the story is engrossing, and the plot has the ususal twists and turns one comes to expect from Cussler. I recommend it to all fans of NUMA and the usual characters who populate the Cussler books.

I may have just lost interest, but Cussler's work is becoming repetative. Lost City will help pass an evening.

Another good one , this one is more updated with Dirk in Admiral S's
place in NUMA . So it's a little different. Still a world threatening
plot.
