An investigation into the sudden deaths of a pod of gray whales leads National Underwater & Marine Agency leader Kurt Austin to the Mexican coast, where someone tries to put him and his mini-sub permanently out of commission.

Meanwhile, in South America’s lush hills, a specially assigned NUMA team discovers a murdered body—a member of a mysterious local tribe who live like ghosts beyond a five-part waterfall the locals call the Hand of God … and are rumored to be led by a mythical white goddess. Now they are in danger from a vicious cadre of bio-pirates intent on stealing medicinal discoveries worth millions.

Soon Austin and his crew realize that they’re working opposite ends of the same grand scheme—and must race against time to save the world’s freshwater supply from a twisted eco-extortionist. But every step toward salvation takes them deeper into a dense jungle of treachery, blackmail, and death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Plenty of heart-stopping action, random acts of murder and mutilation, and even a little romance. Great pacing, plenty of gadgets, a strong narrative, and bigger-than-life heroes and villains. If you’ve run out of summer action flicks already, make your own popcorn and curl up with Blue Gold instead.”

    " Decent Cussler novel. Story revolves in a mega-corporations attempt to monopolize all of the world's fresh water. It is up to Austin and Zavala to interrupt this malevolent scheme. Settings range from the Amazon to Baja California and Lake Tahoe. Decent ending. Middle of the road for Cussler. Glad I read it. "

    " Quick read - predictable, not one of his better books. "

    " Thanks Caroline, for bursting my fantasy bubble with reality. This is another Clive Cussler filled with fantasy, some science?, and adventure. It is a book to kick back with and not have to think. Since I know very little about science and left reality behind long ago I enjoyed the mix of science, winning of battles against all odds, and being chased by ancient Indian tribes deep in South America. Also I was glad to hear that my eight glasses of water a day are safe due to the fearless efforts of Kurt Austin and NUMA. "
