From the Back Cover
A NUCLEAR PEARL HARBOUR
Buried in the depths of the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Japan, lies one of the greatest drowned secrets of World War Two – a crashed B-29 bomber that was carrying a third atomic bomb to Japan in 1945.
Its deadly cargo, lost in the sea for nearly fifty years, is at the heart of this latest Dirk Pitt adventure thriller, in which a small group of Japanese nationalist fanatics, dreaming of a new Nipponese Empire, set out to neutralize and blackmail the USA – with nuclear weapons planted strategically in the country’s major cities …

Other than that it's a thoroughly enjoyable action adventure novel.
Sadly in creating Dirk Pitt as an action man who is loved by all, he has created a hero who makes comic-book superheroes seem deep. It is true that the tortured hero is in itself a cliche, and there is an aegument for avoiding that well-worn route. But sadly Mr Cussler has gone overboard in creating a can-do, ordinary guy, who is never perlexed or confused or challenged by anything that he faces. And it makes for a dull read.
I laughed out loud at many points in this book - but not, I think, at places which Mr Cussler intended.
A nautical stinker to be avoided.
