A deadly tide of poison flows into ocean waters. A ghost ship drifts across the empty northern Pacific. A luxury Soviet liner blazes into a funeral pyre. The Presidential yacht cruises the Potomac night—and the President disappears without a trace.

Dirk Pitt takes on a sinister Asian shipping empire in an intercontinental duel of nerves. In his most dangerous, fast-paced adventure, he fights to save the US government—and to seize one desperate moment of revenge!

Lackluster and dull at many points. ( )

I really enjoyed the battle between the bag guys and the Confederate soldiers- that was surprisingly entertaining. Otherwise, this was not one of Cussler's best novels. The neuroscience stuff was odd and dated, and thus really hard to buy into for the sake of the story, and the whole story seemed just a bit too far-fetched and clumsy, compared to Cussler's better books. It was still fun, but I know this author can write better books. Granted, this was a novel from the 80's, but that only is a partial excuse. ( )

One of the better books I have read in a long time, excellent thriller. You have just got to love how Cussler pulls all these seemingly random strands together. ( )

Review "IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN." -- Houston Chronicle "ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER." -- People "GRIPPING." -- United Press International Product Description A ghost ship drifts across the northern Pacific.... A Soviet luxury liner burns like a funeral pyre.... And the U.S. President's yacht is heading for disaster.... Somewhere off the coast of Alaska, a sunken cargo poses a threat of unthinkable proportions. Potentially, the lost shipment of chemicals could destroy all life in the ocean -- and perhaps the world -- unless DIRK PITT can find it first. But time is running out for the NUMA agent and his team. Pitt's main target is just one deadly component of a vast international conspiracy fueled by hijacking, bribery, and murder. And at the center of it all is a powerful Korean shipping empire with a chilling political agenda -- to kidnap the President of the United States.... ( )
