Beneath the Pacific Ocean a volcano surges upward, carrying in its fiery heart a mineral more powerful than uranium. When the volcano breaks the ocean's surface, nations will battle to control what is known as Vulcan's Forge - a source of limitless, clean, nuclear power.The secret of Vulcan's Forge begins to unravel when Mercer, a man of many talents now working for the US Geologic Survey, learns that the daughter of an old friend is in danger. Saving her takes Mercer from the Oval Office to a secret submarine off Hawaii. On the islands, a secessionist movement has turned violent and the US trembles on the brink of a civil war, while behind the scenes, shadowy figures jockey for control of the emerging volcano.

Pretty good

I downloaded this because Du Brul co-writes with Clive Cussler and I wanted to see what his work is like by itself. It is a good mystery novel, albeit, basic. He goes into a lot of detail justifying and explaining what is going on. It's missing that extra WOW that Cussler adds. That being said, it is worth the download.

Cussler wannabe

I chose this book because Mr. Du Brul has co-written with Clive Cussler on several books. However, the style is exactly like Cussler's--minus the good taste and talent of Cussler's books. There is absolutely no reason for the foul language and sex scenes. They added nothing to the book--and took away from an already mediocre work. The character is a beer chugging tiresome shadow of Dirk Pitt. Don't waste your time or credit with this one.
