Cussler's multitude of fans arrive at the table expecting a roiling stew of seafaring adventure, exotic travel destinations, cutting-edge science, a splash of romance and insider tips on food and drink. In this latest starring series hero Kurt Austin (Fire Ice; Blue Gold), readers will find all their expectations extravagantly fulfilled. The bronzed, rugged Austin, leader of the NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency) Special Assignments Team, and his partner, Joe Zavala, are called in to free survivors trapped inside a Danish warship sunk after a collision with the flagship of the radical environmentalist group Sentinels of the Sea. After a successful rescue, Austin's investigations lead him from the haughty environmentalists to the Oceanus Corporation, a shadowy fish farming organization: "A miasma of pure evil seemed to hang over the Oceanus operation." Austin sneaks into one of the fish farms on a solo recon and is nearly killed by the swarthy, black-clad, facially tattooed Eskimos of the evil Kiolya tribe who guard the company's many operations. The Kiolyas are led by albino madman Toonook, a genius fish geneticist who has engineered members of the harmless salmon family into a breed of 10-foot, piranha-like Frankenfish. All the villains have satanic smiles and pitiless eyes, and snarl their dialogue. If it all sounds highly preposterous, it is, but Cussler manages with his usual aplomb, impressively juggling his plots and bringing everyone home in an action-fueled, rip-roaring finale in which evil doers are soundly defeated and swashbuckling heroes reign supreme. Who would have guessed that the world of high-stakes fish farming could be so thrilling?

One of my favorite Clive Cussler books!

Another Clive Cussler winner--a Kurt Austin adventure. As usual, Cussler tells a unique tale, weaving in events from past centuries and decades and relating them to the current tale. Fast moving and fun to read.

I love when Cussler writes with Kemprecos. You get the same high thrills and adventure without the cheese. Thanks P.K.

This author' stories remind me of James Bond on the water. Cussler's new hero Kurt Austin is almost as good as Dirk Pitt, my long time favorite hero.

Kurt Austin adventure where a corporation threatens the oceans.

Kurt Austin is probably my favorite over-the-top action hero. He can (and does) do everything imaginable and some completely unimaginable stuff too. He's a great hero and he always gets the girl. His pal (and partner) Joe Zavala is another real good thinks-on-your-feet kinda guy. The adventures these two get into and out of are truly amazing.

This one involves a horn and sword from the 1500s which was stolen and passed along through a family of crazy Indians. The main crazy is Tunuk and he has serious delusions of gradeur. He is genetically enhancing fish on his conglomerate of biofish farms to be perpetually hungry and savagely viscious. He plans to release these fish into the wild to get the monopoly on the fish industry and rule the world. Obviously, Kurt and Joe (and NUMA) can't let this happen. As usual, the adventures are world-wide and involve characters from previous books.

As always Clive takes a little known piece of history and turns it into a great story line. This one involves a WW 2 blimp form the Nazi's which was lost on in Ant-Arctica, a group of vicious Eskimos, and Mr. Pearlmutter helps add the information to make the story seem real. Thios is another book co-authored by Paul Kamprecos. I like he's style of writing. I am so glad the Clive decided to help other writers a chance to continue his legacy.

Clive Cussler keeps coming up with interesting characters in his various series of books. How does he do it? Time after time in book after book he takes you to the ends of the earth with fabulous characters. Keep 'em comin'
