I always get excited when a new Clive Cussler novel is coming out. But I ask myself, "Can he do it again and pull off another fascinating story?" I also ask myself, "What Global Topic hasn't he covered?"

Well, here it comes. The world has grown so dependent on computer systems that we don't fully understand just how vulnerable that can really make us. We all know that hackers are out there and they are stealing identities from people every day and ruining credit scores and lives.

But what if the hackers were to actually hack a "Government" and steal that "Government's" identity? How devastating could that really be, and is it really possible.

Add to that some detective work, some advance bioengineering issues and you have a novel that is fun to read, fast paced and typical Cussler good times.

Kurt Austin is struggling as we start the book. He has appeared to have an emotional melt down. He is seeing a psychiatrist to try and get himself back in the game. Really, come on, Kurt Austin? He is our hero of hero's, how can he have a mental breakdown. But it is true and those around him are concerned about his ability to function.

Throw into the mix that he answers a rescue call for a ship in distress to discover that it is an old love, Sienna, who is on the ship with her husband and their children. When he and Zavala get there the boat is sinking. He goes aboard (in a huge storm) to try and effect a rescue. But all he does is see the floating body of what is most likely one of Sienna's children. He then is knocked out cold and has to be rescued himself.

When he comes to, he accepts the fact that Sienna is dead and moves on. But is that true Kurt Austin fashion?

I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to read a Clive Cussler novel, it is right up my alley – military/scientific action taking place predominantly at sea. I love all books that discuss the sea – I have always been bored by fighter jets, but intrigued by submarines and warships. And Ghost Ship certainly had nautical themes in spades. Despite not reading any of the previous books in this series, I could still relate to the characters, and mentions of backstory were small or simply inconsequential things that didn’t jump out to someone who hadn’t read any of the older books.

The plot is action packed, and far fetched (just how I like my military thrillers, thankyou.), and there was a sprinkling of humour and morality that just lifted the story. The plot was quite easy to follow, and even though the turns weren’t surprising, the journey was thorougly enjoyable.

The characters were a good ensemble cast, which is suprising as these books usually have one ‘hero’ character. It’s nice to see people working as a TEAM!. My personal favourite character of this novel was Duke – everytime he said something, I laughed out lout. Especially when things were in a bit of a crisis state.

I am unable to compare this book to any other Cussler novels, as previously mentioned, this is my first foray into his works, but it was enjoyable enough reading experience. Maybe when I have hunted out some of the older Cusslers I will be able to see how different this book is his, when compared to his standalone works.

Lying on the deck, exhausted and half surprised to be alive, Kurt looked around at his rescuers. “Is everyone okay?”

El Din nodded. Joe flashed a thumbs-up. “We’re fine,” Joe said. “What about you?”

“Never better,” Kurt said.

“You’re bleeding,” El Din pointed out.

Kurt checked the wound. It was superficial. Another crease in the sheet metal. “Cut myself shaving,” he joked. “Have to be more careful.”

Joe laughed. He was glad to see Kurt’s sense of humor had returned.

Or how about this:

By that, everyone knew Duke was referring to himself. Duke looked like a surfer: young and muscular, with bronzed skin and a mane of blond hair. Even now, he had his shirt off. He was humorous and cocky and pretty good at everything he did to back it up.

And this:

Five foot ten, with hair the color of red wine, and smooth pale skin, Gamay was an athlete and in fantastic shape. She had a sharp wit that was usually used in jest, though you didn’t want to be on her bad side, as she didn’t suffer fools lightly.

As they circled around the port side of the Ethernet, Gamay caught sight of lights dropping down through the black water on the starboard side. “Duke, is that you? Or are we being visited by UFOs?”

“You can all relax,” he replied. “The Duke is on the job.” Gamay rolled her eyes. “Glad you could join us. We’ll work the port side, you work the starboard. That way, we keep our comm lines from getting tangled.”

Or how about:

“Who were you speaking to on the phone?”

She didn’t reply, but she ran her tongue across the bleeding lip, seeming to enjoy the taste of her own blood like some kind of vampire princess.

“I asked you a question.
