Someone is stealing ships from the oceans of the world. They just vanish, along with their crews and cargoes. If anyone can unravel this maritime mystery it's Dirk Pitt and NUMA. But Vice President Sandecker has another job for Dirk: discover who has stolen the plans for the world's most advanced submarine. Is there a connection between the mysteriously missing ships and the hijacked sub plans? If you're a Cussler fan, you already know the answer. You also know that this is just the tip of the Cussler iceberg. Dirk's son and daughter are kidnapped, rare earth mines are being destroyed, and a sinister Austrian is lurking in the shadows. Cussler's adventure stories are in great hands with reader Scott Brick, who uses his theater-trained voice and lack of artifice to move the story along to its action-packed conclusion. verdict Libraries know that a Cussler book is a solid purchase, and this one is no exception. Highly recommended.-Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
