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.

Another exciting adventure for the Pitt's.
For some reason I was not that familiar with the Cuban history as I thought. It was interesting to get some details of Cuba.
Always hard to put the Cussler books down. I listen on my drive to work, and never want to park my car because then the action has to pause until quitting time.
I very much recommend this book for Cussler fans.

If you want to read Clive Cussler, I would recommend his earlier works, My husband and I like to listen to an audio book on a long drive that we have been making often to visit his elderly parents. Clive has been a favorite author of books we read (not listened to) in the past and thought we would try Havana Storm. To us it was just a repeat of the same old story, and were very disappointed with it. It was predictable and boring, and lost the old Clive excitement. We both found Scott Brick to be annoying, and I don't think I will waste my time listening to him narrating any other book (my first experience of him was Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged). Maybe we would have found Havana Storm more enjoyable if there was a different narrator. I guess it's hard to keep a good thing going.
