For seven books, Clive Cussler has dazzled readers with the “spine-tingling adventures” (Chicago Tribune) of Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team, but in Medusa, the NUMA team faces what may be its most perilous mission of all.

In the Micronesian Islands, a top secret, US government–sponsored undersea lab conducting vital biomedical research on a rare jellyfish known as the Blue Medusa suddenly disappears. At the same time, off Bermuda, a bathysphere is attacked by an underwater vehicle and left helpless a half mile below the surface, its passengers—including Zavala—left to die. Only Kurt Austin’s heroic measures save them from a watery grave, but, suspecting a connection, Austin puts the NUMA team on the case. He has no idea what he’s just gotten them all into.

A hideous series of medical experiments … an extraordinarily ambitious Chinese criminal organization … a secret new virus that threatens to set off a worldwide pandemic. Austin and Zavala have been in tight spots before, but this time it’s not just their own skins they’re trying to save—it’s the lives of millions.

Filled with the high-stakes suspense and boundless invention unique to Cussler, Medusa is the most thrilling novel yet from the grand master of adventure.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 2/12/2014

    " Started 11-3-09. Slow start.... But a good one. I am always highly amused with the exceedingly liberal use of adjectives in these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dmcconkey | 2/12/2014

    " Another great read from Cussler - excellent change of pace & relaxing reading from studies "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Womack | 2/1/2014

    " This one didn't seem as fun... something was just a little off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Cook | 1/26/2014

    " First sentence - "In all his years sailing the world's oceans, Captain Horatio Dobbs had never known the sea to be so barren." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mason | 1/17/2014

    " Another good story by Cussler. I really like these characters and can't wait until the next book about the NUMA Files. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/15/2014

    " Even thought the formula is similar in all of his stories, they are still fun and entertaining. I like the historical tie-ins in the beginning and don't have to worry about bad language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/13/2014

    " Actually listened to this on a long car trip. Narrator was generally engaging and the story was excellent, albeit cheesy in a couple of spots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Frazier | 12/27/2013

    " Loved It. Once again Kurt Austin and his team go into improbable situations and save the day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin Walsh | 12/20/2013

    " Nice gripping story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/12/2013

    " Clive Cussler is always a treat, especially in the case of adventure. Kurt rallies the group in order to find a vaccine to a potential pandemic... Seems to be a reoccuring concept in Clive's books, but that's very okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 12/9/2013

    " This "Kurt Austin" novel was pretty good. I was wishing for more under sea adventure, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R.J. Vaccarelli | 7/26/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 6/1/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Klundeen24 | 3/19/2013

    " Pretty good, rollicking, Cussler fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 June Seymour | 3/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 1/20/2013

    " An action packed thriller. Seemingly realistic scenes and situations. This book is registered at bookcrossing.com "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/15/2013

    " another cussler novel - lots of interesting stuff about marine and military engineering and of course the usual fast moving action plot, where the world is saved by one of cussler's alter egos. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 11/8/2012

    " I really enjoy reading Clive Cussler. I have always thought that his Dirk Pitt adventures were the best, but this Kurt Austin tale turned out to be one of my favorites. The NUMA gang in Cussler's books rival "secret agents" anywhere! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 11/7/2012

    " NUMA thrillers are so much fun. Neptune's Eye by Paul Kemprecos was one of my all time favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 7/25/2012

    " Clive Cussler is the father of adventure novels. He never fails to have the man save the world, walk out of the sea in a tux and get the girl. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 2/28/2012

    " This was spell binding! Kept me reading-hard to put down. Murder, mayhem and espionage-what more could you ask for! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/26/2012

    " This is another great Kurt Austin adventure by Clive Cussler with lots of action, drama, intrigue, a dash of romance, and good suspense, dealing with a bit of a medical thriller hint, above or underwater. You'll be at the edge of your seat for every page-turning twist and turn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 6/29/2011

    "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
