Bestseller Cussler's electrifying 12th NUMA Files adventure (after 2013's Zero Hour, also coauthored by Brown) takes Kurt Austin, director of special projects at the National Underwater Marine Agency, across the globe in search of Sienna Westgate, the long-lost love of his life, and the world's preeminent expert in cybersecurity. Pronounced dead after her family's yacht sunk in the Indian Ocean, a revived Sienna may have surfaced in the shadows of the Iranian black market. Notorious smuggler Rene Acosta is eager to trade her talents to any number of foreign governments for a huge sum, but the nefarious Brevard clan is also vying for control over the brilliant Sienna. Trusty colleague Joe Zavala and Dirk Pitt, NUMA's director, provide assistance as Kurt uses a range of advanced technology in the hunt for the woman whose disappearance haunts him day and night. Cussler delivers all the usual twists and turns on the way to the explosive climax. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (May 27) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

In the latest book featuring Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, the Trouts, and the NUMA crew, the team discovers a ship covered with vines and vegetation floating in the ocean. The ship's mysterious past is connected to a sinister crime family who are now human traffickers, bank robbers, kidnappers, and computer hackers whom Kurt believes were responsible for drowning his former fiancÃ©e. Scott Brick does an excellent job reading the book. He captures the excitement of the action and the wisecracking repartee between Joe and Kurt. Verdict Highly recommended for all Cussler and underwater adventure fans.-Ilka Gordon, Aaron Garber Lib., Beachwood, OH (c) Copyright 2015.
