Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Invok[es] the classic feel of James Bond reimagined as an oceanographer.” Associated Press
“An action-adventure for the age of climate change…Plenty of action and drama. Fans will not be disappointed.” Charleston Post and Courier
“One of the best recent novels to bear the Cussler name… The writing here is spot-on…and the story is first-rate, with just enough of a ripped-from-the-headlines feel to it that we imagine it could actually happen. A fine entry in an always-popular series, and a sure bet for those who crave high-concept adventure.” Booklist
“An adventurous mix of archetypal mysterious substances, futuristic technology, ancient legends, and global ecological disaster…Readers are deep in Cussler territory, and the water’s fine.” Publishers Weekly
