'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail

The thirteenth adrenaline-filled Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.

A hundred and forty years after a British ship wrecks on the way to an Australian penal colony and the survivors discover diamonds on the tropical island where they wash up, Maeve Fletcher, one of their descendants, is stranded on an island in Antarctica with a party of passengers after their cruise ship seemingly abandons them.

Dirk Pitt, on an expedition to find the source of a deadly plague that is killing dolphins and seals in the Weddell Sea, finds Maeve and the passengers and rescues them from death. When Pitt later uncovers the cause of the plague, he discovers that Maeve's father, Arthur Dorsett, and her two sisters are responsible because of their diamond-mining technology. A deadly race develops to stop Dorsett from continuing his murderous mining operations and to head off a disaster that will kill millions. Pitt's struggle to foil Dorsett's ruthless plan to destroy the market for diamonds and thus gain a monopoly of his own takes him from harrowing adventures off the west coast of Canada to being cast adrift in the Tasman Sea.

    I am not a reader that will read hours at a time but this is one that I could pick up and read for a short time then get back to it several months later and still keep track of the story line

    If you enjoy Cussler, you will. It be disappointed with this novel. E joyed it from start to finish. Something always happening. Never boring with to many useless details. Hated to get to the end.

    I have throughly enjoyed this book. It had exciting moments where I could not put it down. I was glad to see Pitt in love. Of course seeing him and the big Italian once again get out of trouble. I thought we had lost Pitt and wanted to cry.
  • Infantile, shallow, boring

    Never read Clive, now i know why. Enjoyed the movie Sahara, so I decided to give this book a try. Movie was written much better. The Dirk Pitt of the novels is an idiot. Plain and simple. Dont bother.
