Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Classic Cussler – a terrific plot, lots of action and a satisfying sub-plot to keep you on your toes. It’s a Pitt family NUMA adventure. Here they are examining the causes of mercury poisoning in the sea when they come across secret machines working 700 feet below the surface … uranium! There appears to be a deal between Cuba and Korea but far more intriguing to the Pitts is an ancient Aztec stone cut in half. Finding the second part is vital.

If you like Clive Cussler you might also like to read books by Robert Ludlum, Matthew Reilly and Michael Cordy.

Synopsis

Havana Storm by Clive Cussler

Dirk Pitt returns in Havana Storm, the thrilling new novel from the grand master of adventure and No.1 New York Times bestselling author, Clive Cussler. While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous - a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings the pair both to Cuba as well - and squarely into harm's way. Pitt father, son and daughter have been in desperate situations before ...but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.
