In 1898, in Havana Harbor, someone removes a crate containing a valuable artifact from the deck of the sinking American battleship the USS Maine. In the present day, Dirk Pitt, National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) director and star of Cussler's long-running series of adventure novels, is looking into a series of dead zones, areas where no organic life can survive, in the Caribbean Sea. Meanwhile, Dirk's daughter, Summer, and his son, also named Dirk, are searching for an Aztec artifact that could point the way to an ancient treasure. Their investigation and their father's takes them to Cuba, just as the political upheaval that has spread in the wake of Fidel Castro's death threatens to get seriously bloody. The Pitt series achieved formulaic efficiency many books ago, and new entries keep going by way of accumulated momentum and familiar characters, but at least it's a formula readers can count on to deliver the goods. You know what to expect going into a Dirk Pitt novel, and you're never disappointed.--Pitt, David Copyright 2014 Booklist

After 40 years of nautical derring-do, Dirk Pitt is still going strong, as shown in bestseller Cussler's winning 23rd novel featuring the underwater expert, the sixth coauthored with son Dirk (after 2012's Poseidon's Arrow). In 1898, Ellsworth Boyd, a Yale anthropologist who specializes in native Caribbean cultures, arrives in Cuba with something in a crate that he excavated in Jamaica. Unfortunately, Boyd boards the USS Maine with his prize shortly before the warship explodes and sinks in Havana Harbor. More than a century later, Pitt and his two grown children, Summer and her twin brother, Dirk Jr., seek to retrieve Boyd's mysterious discovery. Subplots aplenty involve venal Cuban politicians, the release of poisonous mercury from the sea bottom, uranium ore going to North Korea, and a fabulous Aztec treasure. Some critics consider Isaac Bell the new go-to Cussler hero, but no one should count out the Pitts and their seagoing gang of adventurers. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (Nov.)
