In this tenth entry in Cussler's "NUMA Files" series, a National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) research vessel in the Indian Ocean mysteriously burns and its experienced crew is lost. The agency sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the usual team members to investigate. Kurt and Joe clash with a maniacal, power-hungry villain intent on controlling the world's food supply by altering the ocean's temperature. Award-winning audiobook reader Scott Brick ably brings the characters to life and is equally adept at interpreting male and female personas. VERDICT Cussler fans will be happy to have another familiar adventure to digest. Thriller lovers and those interested in nautical adventures also will enjoy it.
