Dirk Pitt returns, in the thrilling new novel from the grand master of adventure and number one New York Times best-selling author.
While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous - a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings them both to Cuba as well - and squarely into harm's way. The three of them have been in desperate situations before... but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.

Needs a different narrater
Pretty good story
Pitt, the senior because he's been around longer and he seems quite attractive.
For 4/5 of the book, he spoke in such a slow, affected manner which was not natural. It bothered me so much I had to struggle to pay attention. Finally, for some reason in the end of the book, he started speaking naturally and it made all the difference.
My extreme reaction was for the narrater.

Poor! Poor! Poor!
Better story, better writing, better reader.
From Clive Cussler's newer books. He used to be great.
Absolutely no energy, too matter of fact, inability to use different voices.
I have always loved Clive Cussler's books, but this is the last one I will read due to the following:
The story is predictable and boring without any inner development of the characters. It is poorly written, seems like a high school student wrote it.
I would like my money back as this was a total waste of time. It is a book for a non-thinking person. Cussler should read some Baldacci to get a feel for how a book should be written a character be developed.
He needs to reread his earlier books and then try to write something new. It seems as if he has helpers who are writing his books on a computer by pasting sections together. The laboratory sequence is the most boring and poorly written I have heard of his work.
