Description


Everywhere, waters are rising--and that's just the beginning of the world's peril unless the NUMA crew can beat the clock in this thrilling #1 New York Times-bestseller from the grand master of adventure.

An alarming rise in the world's sea levels--much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt--sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers. What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined: a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power--and in the process displace as many as a billion people.

A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of five-hundred-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin - from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

Graham Brown grew up in Illinois, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, moving often with his family. As far as he knows they weren't in the witness protection program or part of any top secret government agency, but then, would they really tell him? A former pilot and lawyer, and later part of a start up health care firm, Brown decided he hadn't had enough different careers yet and decided to become a writer. A huge fan of Clive Cussler, Michael Crichton, Stephen King, and television shows like The X-Files and Lost, Graham's first novel, Black Rain, debuted in January 2010. He now cowrites the NUMA Files series with Clive Cussler. Their second collaboration, The Storm, debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List.

Praise For…


“Another entertaining and diverting read from a true legend in the adventure business. . . . invok[es] the classic feel of James Bond reimagined as an oceanographer.” --Associated Press

“An action-adventure for the age of climate change. . . Plenty of action and drama. Fans will not be disappointed.”--Charleston Post and Courier

“One of the best recent novels to bear the Cussler name… The writing here is spot-on… and the story is first-rate, with just enough of a ripped-from-the-headlines feel to it that we imagine it could actually happen. A fine entry in an always-popular series, and a sure bet for those who crave high-concept adventure.” --Booklist
