For after the pirates scuttle the ship they fought so hard to take, their own corsair suddenly bursts into flames mid-getaway.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-10-03 Sierra Leone's ambitious dictator, Djemma Garand, has coerced Alexander Cochrane into constructing "a directed-energy weapon of incredible power," which can cook people from the inside out in the action-packed ninth Kurt Austin adventure (after 2009's Medusa) from bestseller Cussler and new collaborator Brown (Black Rain). A test of the weapon on a cargo vessel happens to occur near a ship transporting Austin and his NUMA (National Underwater Maritime Agency) Special Operations Team to the Azores. Austin's rescue attempt of the stricken boat brings him into direct conflict with Andras, a vicious thug in Garand's employ. Both men escape to battle another day in a James Bond-like plot that includes an attractive Russian scientist, Katarina Luskaya, who becomes both love interest and hostage. In the end, Andras conveniently gives Austin a fighting chance to escape a death trap. Thriller fans who aren't too picky about credibility will be most rewarded. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
