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.

As always, Clive Cussler proves he is fantastic at what he does. By that I mean keeping you sitting in your chair or lying on the bed, reading until you have finished the book. Do not miss this book! It is well worth the read!

The two story lines that you will follow can be confusing at time. Especially, when both stories branch to develop a new plot line before going back to the main character. You have to be an active reader to keep all the twist and turns straight. However it all comes together at the end. I do enjoy Clive Cussler's books and will continue to be a fan.

The plot lines were a little difficult to keep up with, who was gunning for whom and I did have to go back a few pages a couple of times to pick up the thread of the story line. I enjoyed the book very much and perhaps I was just reading it to fast to keep all the players straight in my head. That said the story keeps pulling you back in as the action never stops and I couldn't put this book down. Buy it, read it, and you will enjoy it just make sure there isn't anything else you need to do during the day as you aren't going to be able to get to it as you charge through this story.

Yet another NUMA Files adventure of the intrepid Kurt Austin and his equally intrepid best friend and sidekick Joe Zavala, and yet another action-packed non-stop page turner by Clive Cussler.

This time, Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team (to include the hubby-and-wife duo of Paul & Gamay Trout, new supporting characters Duke and Elena, plus Dirk Pitt and Hiram Yaeger in a most behind-the-scenes role) must deal with the murderous Brevard family, a multigenerational family of wealthy gangsters living in their posh compound/palace in Madagascar; mastermind Sebastian, brothers Egan and Laurent, and mysterious sister Calista (is she really a member of their family or not?). The Brevards are making use of both a mind-control technology and the kidnapping & extortion of super-hackers and technology experts from around the world to advance their criminal enterprise.

Among the victims of the Brevards' mind-control technology is none other than Kurt Austin himself; did he or did he not really see his friend and former lover, technological genius Sierra Westgate, perish in the sinking of a luxury yacht, and if she did survive (which nobody else but Kurt is initially inclined to believe), is she now in fact a pawn of the Brevards (and other villains like a certain Mr. Acosta)?
