Synopsis

Oceanographer Dirk Pitt traces a lost ship's mysterious cargo to a scientific discovery that could reverse the dangers of climate change in this novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling action adventure series.

When an act of sabotage aims to slow down a technological breakthrough in American clean energy, it puts the United States on the brink of war with one of its closest allies. Tension boils on the homefront, too, as gas prices surge to an all-time high. To prevent global catastrophe, Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk Jr. and Summer, must piece together what little records remain of the initial experiment. They may not know how it was done, but they know what their scientists were trying to accomplish: a solution for global warming.  

Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission. And if Pitt, his family, and his buddy Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them…and the world.

About the Author

During a very active, interesting life, author. Clive Cussler became interested in writing. He was in the Air Force during the Korean War followed by a career in advertising writing award winning commercials. In 1996 he wrote his first notification work, The Sea Hunters. From that work he was awarded a Doctor of Letters degree, with his work being accepted in lieu of a thesis. Then, in 2002 he was awarded the Naval Heritage Award for his efforts in the subject of marine exploration. He is also a Fellow in three prestigious marine organizations.

In keeping with his marine interests, his books revolved around character, Dirk Pitt, who was a marine engineer, government agent, and adventurer. His first two novels were more traditional maritime thrillers, but the third, Raise the Titanic, established his iconic style.....a blend of high adventure and high technology involving villains, sunken treasure, and beautiful women.

Cussler writes in the style like fellow authors, Michael Crichton, creating techno - thrillers that do not depend on any certain settings with great spectacular and outlandish plot devices. He has had more than seventeen titles on the New York Times fiction best seller list.
