Clive Cussler is the author of many "New York Times" bestsellers, most recently "The Kingdom" and "The Race." He lives in Arizona. Graham Brown is the author of "Black Rain" and "Black Sun." A pilot and an attorney, he lives in Arizona.
Here is another suspense-filled Cussler novel in the "NUMA" series featuring Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA special assignments team. A brutal African dictator has kidnapped the top superconductor experts from around the globe in order to build a powerful weapon to threaten major world powers. Actor Scott Brick, who has narrated previous "NUMA" audiobooks, does an excellent job reading this exciting installment to the series. He captures perfectly the Russian accents and the romantic repartee between Kurt and the beautiful Russian scientist he is trying to protect. -VERDICT Recommended for Cussler's numerous devotees and under-water adventure fans. [The Putnam hc, published last November, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Ilka Gordon, Siegal Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland (c) Copyright 2012.
