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.

"A compelling read....as good as you would expect"
Another compelling story line which draws the reader onto the expected world of good v bad but prompts some thinking about the potential for this plot being a real threat in our world. The characters are believable and well defined and it is very hard to put down!!
Another winner Mr Cussler.
"Great story, could not wait to hear more."
Smashing story, loved every bit, kept me wanting to hear more but sadly had to go to bed at some point.
"another cracking read from this exciting author."
I've read 15 books by Clive Cussler and they've all been good. This one is a great story and has a place on anyones list. There is no gratuitous sex as in a lot of stories, characters that are believable and you find yourself rooting for the good guys and hating the bad ones. Scott brick narrates with feeling, humour and keeps up a pace that enthralls the listener drawing you into the plot. For a story that takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the worlds oceans and deserts chasing bad guys and incredible machines, this one is right up with the best.
