Typical Cussler brand entertainment, typically excellent execution. Only (minor) complain is a pair of glaring editing errors that slipped through in the span of 6 pages - two different paragraphs were duplicated with slight wording variations on pages 413 and 419-20. ( )

From Amazon:

When Kurt Austin is injured attempting to rescue the passengers and crew from a sinking yacht, he wakes with fragmented and conflicted memories. Did he see an old friend and her children drown, or was the yacht abandoned when he came aboard? For reasons he cannot explain, Kurt doesn’t trust either version of his recollection.

Determined to know the truth, he begins to search for answers, and soon finds himself descending into a shadowy world of state-sponsored cyber-crime, and uncovering a pattern of vanishing scientists, suspicious accidents, and a web of human trafficking. With the help of Joe Zavala, he takes on the sinister organization at the heart of this web, facing off with them in locations ranging from Monaco to North Korea to the rugged coasts of Madagascar.

My Thoughts:

I have read Clive Cusslers's NUMA series for years and always enjoyed them. Somehow in spite of the great number of them he always presented an exciting adventure with real-to-life characters...except for the fact that they always saved the world. This one just didn't have the feeling of the others. While not a bad story, Kurt Austin spent the majority of the book searching for a woman that he was once engaged to and who wasn't very likable in the first place. Is it worth the time to read? Yes. Three stars instead of the usual 4 or 5. ( )

Good story line as usual. Up to date with computer virus and hacking included in the plot line. Nicely done. ( )

When one of the best characters of all time goes down hurt, your heart breaks a little. When it shows up that he's being altered by modern medicine, you want to throw your arms up in frustration. Cussler's characters leap of the page at you and make you excited and sad and angry and when it all ends, you almost need a vacation. Love this author, love this book. ( )
