Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

In the final pages of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he had never known, 23-year-old fraternal twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer, is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a marine engineer. And now they are about to help their father in the adventure of a lifetime.

There is a brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua. The twins are working in a NUMA underwater enclosure, trying to determine its origin, when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient; and the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight not only for them but also for a luxurious floating resort hotel square in its path.

The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable, and, desperately, Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA crew rush to the rescue, but what they find in the storm's wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and the brown tide is only a by-product of its plan. Soon, its work will be complete, and the world will be a very different place.

Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place. Download and start listening now!

    " Pretty typical Dirk Pitt action going on here. I find these books really entertaining, but I have to agree with my boyfriend (who's the reason I read this) that Cussler made a mistake having Dirk Pitt age throughout this series. If he had made Dirk more of a James Bond type character, going on endless missions while never aging it would have been way better. Now these books just feel like a bad soap opera, with Dirk Pitts long lost, never-even knew-had-them kids running around solving crimes with him. And it's pretty obvious Cussler must have realised he needed a young Dirk to fit the bill, since his son, also named Dirk, just happens to look and act exactly like his father...how convenient. "

    " This potboiler is the sort of bad writing that comes of too much, or too easy success that leads one to think he or she can just knock out a book over a weekend or two and a bottle of Scotch. Just in the first part, there is a hurricane barreling towards the Caribbean heading "due east." This is repeated several times. Hurricanes do not and cannot barrel due east. Especially from Africa. Hello? Then there is the scene in which intrepid hero Dirk Pitt arrives to rescue a battered floating hotel in the eye of the worst hurricane ever. This hurricane, with winds of supposedly 225 mph, has just torn apart a dozen ships and a Coast Guard hurrican hunter airplane. No matter. Pitt arrives by helicopter, no problem. Is that cool or what? "

    " Fun and interesting storyline, but it felt too long. It could have easily been 2 different books the way it was written. Certainly a series I would enjoy getting into more though. "
