Clive Cussler writing with Paul Kemprecos
A confrontation between a radical environmentalist group and a Danish cruiser has forced Kurt Austin, leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team, and colleague Joe Zavala to come to the rescue of a shipful of trapped men.
But when the two of them investigate further, they discover that something far more sinister is at work. A shadowy multinational corporation is attempting to wrest control of the very seas themselves, no matter what havoc results, and killing anyone who attempts to stop them. When Austin's boat blows up and he only barely survives, it seems certain that he is the next in line to die, but he cannot stop now. For the environmental disaster has already begun, and only he and NUMA stand in the way.
