Ghost Ship by Clive Cussler, Graham Brown
  

Lovereading view...

The 12th in the NUMA series and one of the best. They are a state of the art marine research organisation with a great team led by Kurt Austin. They tend to hark back to some historical disaster, here in 1909 in South Africa. In the present day we are off to investigate a capsized yacht and the disappearance of a computer genius, a former love of Kurt’s. The action is furious, the plot tight, the tension terrific, the modern weaponry pretty terrifying. A great adventure yarn. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Ghost Ship by Clive Cussler, Graham Brown

Ghost Ship is the latest action-packed novel in the No 1 New York Times-bestselling NUMA Files series from the grand master of adventure, Clive Cussler. When Kurt Austin is injured while rescuing the passengers and crew of a sinking yacht, he wakes up with conflicting memories of what he saw. Did he witness an old friend and her children drown, or was the yacht abandoned when he came aboard? For reasons he cannot explain - yet - Kurt doesn't trust either version of his recollection. Determined to seek out the truth, in his hunt for answers, he soon descends into a shadowy world of state-sponsored cybercrime, where he uncovers a pattern of suspicious accidents, vanishing scientists and a web of human trafficking. Now, he must take on the sinister organization behind this conspiracy, facing off against them from Morocco to North Korea to the rugged coasts of Madagascar. But where this highly dangerous quest will ultimately take him, even he could not begin to guess...Clive Cussler, author of recent New York Times bestsellers The Tombs, Poseidon's Arrow, and The Striker brings us the knuckle-whitening doomsday materpiece, Ghost Ship.
