Synopsis

Everywhere, the waters are rising--and that is just the beginning of the world's peril, unless the NUMA crew can beat the clock. The thrilling new NUMA Files novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure.

An alarming rise in the world's sea levels--much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt--sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers. What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined: a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power--and in the process displace as many as a billion people.

A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of 500-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin - from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

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.
