Medusa is Clive Cussler's eighth NUMA files novel featuring hero Kurt Austin. In the Micronesian Islands, a top-secret US undersea lab vanishes...At the same time, off Bermuda, a bathysphere operated by NUMA and overseen by Kurt Austin is attacked and becomes stranded half a mile below the surface. Only quick thinking and bold action will save the crew - which includes the head of a certain, now-missing undersea lab - from a watery grave. Austin is convinced both events are connected, and he puts NUMA on the case. Soon he's uncovering some hideous medical experiments and evidence of a terrifying virus that could be used to create a worldwide pandemic. Behind it all lies an ambitious Chinese criminal organization prepared to commit mass murder to achieve its ends. Now Austin must put his life on the line in order that millions will be saved from death...Clive Cussler, author of the best-selling Dirk Pitt novels Arctic Drift and Trojan Odyssey, and co-author Paul Kemprecos put their hero, Kurt Austin, at the forefront of a battle against time and global pandemic in Medusa, the eighth novel of the action-packed NUMA Files series.

Publishers Weekly, 2009-08-31 In the eighth Kurt Austin adventure, a lethal flu virus emerges in China, and the Chinese and American governments join together to search for a vaccine to prevent a global pandemic. Research suggests the sea holds the cure, but when the vital deep sea research laboratory goes missing, NUMA's Special Assignments Team with Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala pursue leads into danger to recover the invaluable resources. Scott Brick adds texture to one of Cussler's deep sea adventures; the timbre and tone of his voice are pleasing-even as he ratchets up the tension to the story's memorable climax. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 20). (June) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly, 2009-04-20 In the prologue to the winning eighth Kurt Austin adventure from bestseller Cussler and Shamus-winner Kemprecos (after The Navigator), 18-year-old Caleb Nye, a farm boy on his first sea voyage in 1848, finds himself a modern-day Jonah after being swallowed by a whale and then cut from the stomach, alive but forever changed. In the present, a Russian captain sees his Typhoon-class submarine sold to an unknown buyer, and in China, Dr. Song Lee, who's been banished to the countryside, gets orders to return to Beijing to fight a deadly SARS epidemic. Meanwhile, off Bermuda, Kurt Austin and the stalwart crew of the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) lower a bathysphere to the ocean depths, where something big snaps the cables connecting the vessel to the mother ship. Soon enough, the disparate plot lines converge in an action-packed tale that snags readers and drags them racing through heavy seas and high drama. 600,000 first printing.
