Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area. What begins as a snake hunt leads Cabrillo onto the trail of a far more lethal quarry - a deranged militant and his followers who plan to unleash the devastating power of nature itself against all who oppose them. In his latest bestseller, Clive Cussler, the Grandmaster of Adventure, shows once again that when it comes to page-turning action, he's the man to beat.Read Less

The book came in bad shape, most of the cover was missing and the pages torn and wrinkled. The book itself was good.

If this combination of authors ever come up with a bad book, I will find it impossible to believe. Both of them are fine authors, and Cussler has been a favorite since he began, many books ago. This is an excellent plot and it moves along at a pace that only Cussler readers understand. I have almost all of the books that Cussler and his associate authors have written. I am losing my vision, and want to finish them all prior to having the please of reading them, over hearing them. I hope these two produce more books, and when they are printed, I will read them. My thanks to both men, who write the way I would, that is if I could. Grandpa Ron... P.S. I have yet to read a Cussler book that I would not rate five stars.
