More About the Author

Clive Cussler began writing novels in 1965 and published his first work featuring his continuous series hero, Dirk Pitt(R), in 1973. His first non-fiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York, considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May, 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, (NUMA) a 501C3 non-profit organization (named after the fictional Federal agency in his novels) that dedicates itself to preserving American maritime and naval history. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered more than 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites including the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, the Confederacy's Hunley, and its victim, the Union's Housatonic; the U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; the Cumberland, which was sunk by the famous ironclad, Merrimack; the renowned Confederate raider Florida; the Navy airship, Akron, the Republic of Texas Navy warship, Zavala, found under a parking lot in Galveston, and the Carpathia, which sank almost six years to-the-day after plucking Titanic's survivors from the sea.

In September, 1998, NUMA - which turns over all artifacts to state and Federal authorities, or donates them to museums and universities - launched its own web site for those wishing more information about maritime history or wishing to make donations to the organization.

In addition to being the Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is also a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London. He has been honored with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.

Cussler's books have been published in more than 40 languages in more than 100 countries. His past international bestsellers include Pacific Vortex, Mediterranean Caper, Iceberg, Raise the Titanic, Vixen 03, Night Probe, Deep Six, Cyclops, Treasure, Dragon, Sahara, Inca Gold, Shock Wave, Flood Tide, Atlantis Found, Valhalla Rising, Trojan Odyssey, Black Wind, Treasure of Kahn and Arctic Drift (the last three with his son, Dirk Cussler) as well as The Chase; the nonfiction books The Sea Hunters, The Sea Hunters II and Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt (R) Revealed; the NUMA(R) Files novels Serpent, Blue Gold, Fire Ice, White Death, Lost City, Polar Shift, The Navigator and Medusa (written with Paul Kemprecos); and the Oregon Files novels Sacred Stone and Golden Buddha (written with Craig Dirgo) and Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship and Corsair (written with Jack Du Brul).

Clive Cussler lives in Arizona.

This is Cussler doing what he does best

Global climate change poses a threat in Clive Cussler's exciting 10th Kurt Austin / Joe Zavala thriller. When everyone aboard a NUMA research vessel is killed after running into a mysterious black oily substance in the Indian Ocean, As usual the poor selfless Numa experts were helping the planet and investigating water temperature anomalies when this occurred, Kurt and plucky partner Joe Zavala rush to find out what happened.
As you would expect with an action packed adventure from Cussler we have a new bad guy hell bent on mischief, this time in the form of Wealthy Yemeni Jinn al-Khaif, who's behind the killings, has dumped billions of microbots into the sea to cool it and create weather patterns that will throw the planets eco system into chaos as usual these plans are economically based and take no account of the human cost. Our heroes Kurt and Joe plan to stop him, and, as always, the fate of the world rests in their hands. This book as ever for Cussler has a nice clever twist at the end one that shows that Clive Cussler is still at the top of his game in the action adventure world.

Good fun as always

A good read as ever with Cussler. As the Head Lie says I found he story far fetched and that detracted from the read. Usually he has a better grasp on the reality of his stories.

Cussler has produced a riveting read. Fast-paced forceful action with never a dull moment. Full of incident and head first exploits. The brief prologue describes a 'Fast Freighter',in 1943, 'SS John Bury' captained by Pickett attacked by Japanese and last seen on fire sailing at full speed never to be seen again. Apparently the cargo was valuable.

In 1967, Tariq Al-Khalif's family is slaughtered by bandits in North Yemen. His son survives( Jinn) who becomes a wealthy consortium leader. His father tells him not to show pity to adversaries as it is a sign of weakness. He seeks revenge.
Forward to June 2012 when a Catamaran is recording data for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) in the Indian Ocean encounters a charcoal coloured particulate swarm that spreads lethally from the ocean onto the deck. The three crew members die.
Dick Pitt, director of NUMA, puts Special Project Branch agents Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala on the investigation. Off to the Maldives where they meet fellow agents Paul and Gamay Trout.

Jinn is head of a powerful consortium aiming to alter water and air temperatures to produce world wide famine by whatever means. No conscience. Driven by power and money.
The procedures of factfinding results are exhilarating, energetic and hazardous non-stop activity full of death defying incidents in the Houidini style.

Cussler has produced a novel of tremendous page -turning narrative. Strong well-developed characters with twists are there. Humour between Kurt and Joe are evident as is their care for each other. The story contains so many elements of surprise and develops in an easily readable style. No disappointments for Clive Cussler fans nor of this genre. Extremely enjoyable and recommendable.

I haven't read all of this book yet, but the part I did read was very exciting, and up to Clive Cusslers' usual standard - EXCELLENT!
I don't understand how someone can keep writing books that are so enjoyable, keeps you on the edge of your seat and with characters that you really care about, I'm only glad that he does.
The death of the crew on the original NUMA boat was very sad, but I am sure that the next crew will be able to get to the bottom of what is happening, after some cliff hanger moments, and the world will be a safe place again.
The pairing of Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala is an excellent choice, even if they are make believe characters, and I can't wait to find out what has happened in the book, and how Kurt and Joe deal with the propblem.
As a Clive Cussler fan from his first book, I have collected all of his novels up to date, then just when I think he cannot 'top' his last book, he does it again!!
Give this one a try, if you haven't already become a fan, as you will really enjoy it, I'm sure.

The two heroes are on the move again, with adventures that exceed any that have gone before. Who.has heard of Microsoft's and floating islands coupled with WW2 soldiers still existing on an island in the Indian Ocean. A few words had me puzzled. One in particular - nonnatives. Even this Kindle does not want to accept that word. I can get used to it and coworkers, for the sake of the riproaring adventures.
