Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames.
A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there on the smoldering hulk of the ship will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known: a plan to permanently alter the weather on a global scale. It will kill millions... and it has already begun.
Filled with the boundless invention unique to Clive Cussler, this is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

An action packed Curt Austin book

I have found that most of the Austin books are a slower read than the Oregon Files and some other of CC's books. Don't get me wrong, I love them all and Clive Cussler is one of my very favorite authors. I think this is the most action packed Curt Austin book he has written. It is definitely worth a credit :) Scott Brick does his usual excellent job as narrator.You either love or hate his style. Personally I think he brings books to life.
