This is part of the NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency ) Series, with our hero being Kurt Austin. However, a few other Cussler favorites make cameos including the famous Dirk Pitt. Long time Cussler fans will enjoy these drop-ins.
We start with a boat crash and helicopter battle right outside the Sydney Opera House, and the action rarely leaves off. There's a mystery to solve, the world to be saved, and Kurt is just the man to do it.
Fun & readable.
But before that can happen a small motorized boat is heading at a very high rate of speed towards the shore where Kurt is standing. The boat is being chased by a helicopter and the men in the copter are shooting at the boat. The boat crashes on to shore and throws one of it's occupants out, the other is caught in the wreckage. Kurt rushes in to try and save the driver, but he is stuck and before Kurt can do anything another round of bullets from the helicopter end the drivers life.
Kurt turns his attention to the passenger to see Ms. Anderson running through the melee to drag the man to safety. Kurt does his thing in finding a way to dispatch the helicopter, unfortunately he sends it crashing into the Sidney Opera House (this will make some people unhappy). Now the authorities show up and the real adventure starts.
It turns out the Aussies were tracking these men and hoping to meet with them to get the low down on a "mad scientist" who has developed a machine called the Zero Energy Machine that can harness great stores of energy from the earths core and deliver it anywhere in the world he wants to bring about major destruction, such as earthquakes.
Well, for Austin the vacation is over.Read more ›

I wanted to like this book, but it seemed kind of cheesy to me. I tried giving another Clive Cussler novel a try, but just couldn't get into it. Not for me.Published 18 days ago by Jen

Great read. Clive Cussler keeps you interested from start to climatic finish.Published 19 days ago by James C. Shepherd
Not bad, just underwhelming. The original books were more fun and more believable. These latest ones are a bit over the top and not as creative. Still, entertaining.Published 1 month ago by Baycap
