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 cybercrime, 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. But where he will ultimately end up, even he could not begin to guess.… (more)

This is about Kurt's former fiance and an old ship found floating in the Indian ocean. How are they connected? ( )

Ghost Ship by Clive Cussler is the type of writing we expect from the number #1 adventure author out there. After the let-down of The Tombs (read review here), I can understand if readers are hesitant to get their hands on the rest of Cussler's work, but like everything in life: "Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose." It just so happens that Ghost Ship is one of the winners again. The twelve book in the NUMA Files lived up to my expectations with a gripping adventure, exciting twists and turns, and well-written characters. That's what we want, after all, and by God we got it.

Now, as most of Cussler's books are these days, this one was also co-written. Graham Brown brings something fresh to the table, and yes Cussler and Brown work well together. Also, Graham Brown is not too shabby to look at (just thought I'd mention that somewhere ... look ... http://grahambrownthrillers.com/meet-graham *waves* Hi Graham, you're really pretty to look at. Have anyone told you that recently?).

Anyway, back to the review ...

If you enjoy high-octane action, adventures and thrillers, not to mention some nifty gadgets, then boy, oh boy will you love this book. I mean, it's a freaking roller-coaster from beginning to end.

In other words, I loved it.

I recommend the NUMA Files series to anyone who likes a bit of nitty-grittiness in their literature, some tongue-in-cheek humour added to their adventures, a generous amount of suspense, and a few heaped teaspoons of excitement.

This is a Kirk Austin adventure; however, other Cussler characters are in this book, but the main emphasis is on Kirk and Joe. Once again, Kirk and Joe (and Numa) are off to save the world. This time it is from the Brevard family who has kidnapped an old friend of Kirk's, Sienna and her two children. Sienna is the architect of some powerful security software which will destroy the world's economy if not stopped.
I enjoyed listening to the audio version while driving. ( )

Lively entry in this good series as a NUMA team tries to rescue a fair lady and prevent a massive attack on worldwide computer operations. Venues change rapidly as Kurt and Joe pursue the Indian Ocean based kingpins of this deep and well-planned plot. ( )
