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 ›
Maximillion Thero is a brilliant physicist. He is also mad and suffering from a split personality. He has figured out how to tap into zero point energy, an almost limitless energy source present in all molecules. At first, the research was meant to be a power supply to replace oil and coal. But the perceived slights by several countries caused him to switch his research to weapons.
Enter Kurt Austin. On vacation in Australia, trouble seems to find Kurt. He and Joe become involved in the race to stop Thero before he uses his weapon to destroy Australia, and eventually Russia and the United States.
This book follows the same form as all the other NUMA files books. A lot of action, narrow escapes, and saving the world in the end. There was nothing special in this book, but it was full of action and a fun read.
