Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second very nearly is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.

What’s so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top-secret scientific project that could change the world forever.

And that’s before the surprises really begin …

Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler’s hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive’s best yet.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 2/19/2014

    " Definitely my least favorite Cussler novel. The character motivation was staged, conversations were linear, driving straight to make a plot point without any realism, and the adventure was equally staged. Blah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 2/18/2014

    " A Dan Brown type of novel that links secrets from Phoenician times with Jeffersonian America and the modern USA - so well researched and written that it could be true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 2/13/2014

    " Well what can I say, this is definitely entertaining and a page turner but a bit of a yarn. It's not Tolstoy but it is educating and entertaining, as all Clive Cussler novels are. This particular book is part of the NUMA Kurt Austin series and so should be regarded as such. It's a stand alone novel and you don't have to read any of the others. If you like plot twists aplenty, campy intrigue, action and over the top fun, this is your book. Try the used book store before you drop $10.00. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/7/2014

    " I love Clive Cussler - his books follow exactly the same plot every time yet I can't stop reading them. His formula is the same and amusing yet page turning every time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerwin Jn | 1/25/2014

    " like #thisis40 long but exceedinly enjoyable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney Kofoed | 1/16/2014

    " I was spellbound through the entire book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caeseria | 12/24/2013

    " Not a bad book... having read as much Clive Cussler as I have, it's very formulaic but still is a lot of fun ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Morris | 12/24/2013

    " Cole gave me this for my birthday. He saw a ship and thought I'd like it because of ClipperShip Travel. I didn't think it was my cup of tea - but it's not too bad so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 11/17/2013

    " Fun adventure read as most of this prolific writers's work are. Friends who have read more tell me this is among his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 10/2/2013

    " An ancient Phoenician statue, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, ancient mariners, modern day heros, are part of this book. Action/adventure, once again the search is on for the artifact. Will the good guys win? Middle East setting, mostly. Kept me entertained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 9/11/2013

    " Nice tie in of action, adventure, romance and historical fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich Merchant | 7/13/2013

    " Clive Cussler is an old old favorite of mine. My mother and I used to read his books when I was barely a teen. His books are great when I am unimpressed with anything new and need a book to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 5/28/2013

    " Fun and entertaining story! However, I have never read a book with as many typos! I was amazed at the poor editing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 5/16/2013

    " My favorite of Cussler's Novel's so far. It weaves together history, adventure, weird ancient cultures, and intriguing action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 5/9/2013

    " First 450 pgs were great , very exciting..... last 50 or so got a little too over-the-top. Entertaining read, though .... Cussler has an easy casual way of writing that I enjoyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee Haddrill | 4/28/2013

    " At other great adventure for Kurt Austin and his Special Projects Team. Again, this had everything we've come to expect from a Cussler novel - lots of history, action and a great story, and of course, a beautiful woman to snag Kurt for a few days. It was a very enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 1/13/2013

    " Learned a little history about Thomas Jefferson and about the sons of Solomon and Sheba. The book kept my interest with the adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dirk | 1/6/2013

    " It was ok as entertainment goes. Nice read, a bit short, not the best from Cussler, but solid work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Hager | 11/4/2012

    " I have read most of Cussler's books. For me there were two difficulties with this one. First, it seemed to take more chapters that usual introducing one character after another before weaving them together. Second, he it seems like he took two bookable concepts and rushed them into one book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 shannon | 7/14/2012

    " The usual, which means I liked it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaroslav | 5/2/2012

    " nearly throuthfull story...:-)..and no fiction...except Austins` performance "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 2/29/2012

    " The old works were by far better started out interesting but lost steam. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 1/31/2012

    " Basically a comic book, somewhat entertaining, but not gripping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 1/20/2012

    " Good read by one of my favorite authors "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanna Zeiner | 1/7/2012

    " Not one of his better reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Goh | 12/23/2011

    " More about the Phoenicians. Typical Kurt Austin landing himself a female interest in Mechardi; the villain died way too easily after so much hyped building its characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jani | 12/21/2011

    " Started out pretty slow, but it was good by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/30/2011

    " An interesting story taken from the Solomon theories, and to mix it in with Jeffersonian rumors and conspiracies was really intriguing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheryl | 10/23/2011

    " Great read! This was my first Clive Cussler book. Loved the history in the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave | 8/17/2011

    " It reminds me of the Novel Tom Selleck's character is writing in the movie "Her Alibi". The Plot and story are good. The telling of it just gets over the top sometimes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney | 6/8/2011

    " I was spellbound through the entire book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. | 4/20/2011

    " Great character development in this mix of history and fiction. It is a page turner and kept me on the edge of my seat. I have two more of Cussler's novels in my to read list and will start another one today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 4/17/2011

    " My first Clive Cussler book and the start of many more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 3/15/2011

    " I like the NUMA series, as well as its cousin, the Dirk Pitt series. Both of them, however, are more Bro-mance than real mystery. And, they certainly have an environmentalist agenda. Each novel speaks to a specific environmental issue. But, they are fun reading, and the characters are well-written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jani | 1/25/2011

    " Started out pretty slow, but it was good by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 12/27/2010

    " Yet another classic from Mr. Cussler. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 9/12/2010

    " First Cussler book for me. Listened to most of the book, so maybe that is why I couldn't get passed the cheese factor for the first few discs. Ended up being a pretty good book. Not my usual, but I might just read another one. "
