Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times best seller. 

The 14th incredible Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler. 

Tracking a notorious Chinese smuggler's activities leads Dirk Pitt from Washington State to Louisiana, where his quarry is constructing a huge shipping port in the middle of nowhere. Why has he chosen this unlikely location? 

The trail then leads to the race to find the site of the mysterious sinking of the ship that Chiang Kai-shek filled with treasure when he fled China in 1949, including the legendary boxes containing the bones of Peking Man that had vanished at the beginning of World War I. As Pitt prepares for a final showdown, he is faced with the most formidable foe he has ever encountered....

What a FABULOUS book - Clive Cussler at his BEST!

Scott Brick was absolutely at the top of his performance! Adventure after adventure - WOW! I love Clive’s little performance - really clever! His mind is an ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT! How can one human being imagine all the tales? He is certainly ONE OF A KIND!

I was a bit confused, but then, it’s a re release

Juan Cabrillo is in this one too, and he had both legs....for a while. A 486 computer was dating it so now I knew something was up. Looking back it I found out it was first released 9-97. That being said it was a very good listen, just think prequel if you didn’t read it before and you’ll be fine.

At 19+ hours, it's a very long book that seems like it will never end; however entertaining. The bad guy, a Chinese megalomaniac capitalist, smuggles Chinese into the USA and searches for a ship containing Chinese historical treasures. Dirk and Al team up with Juan Cabrillo for a time. Dirk's love interest is an INS agent--Chinese American. Cussler also appears as an old guy in Louisiana. Fun read, many plots on a single theme--illegal immigration.

clairvoyant

it is the year 2020 and I am listening to a 30-year-old book and it is fantastic how accurate all the predictions and premises within the story are allegedly 20 to 30 years later period an excellent story continuing on in the Clive way.

easy listening

good story and performance although rather predictable plot, that's all I wanted to say but it insists on 7 more words.

Awesome.

I've received read many Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novels in the past I, Flood Tide needed to be added to the list. Scott brick has the ability to narrate a novel and it's like going to the films absolutely awesome. as always Clive Cussler is on form as many people say of his earlier works. I however enjoy all of it. I highly recommend this book as an exciting adventure story and the audible as a very necessary companion to swap and change amongst read/listen.

Dragged out story line.

Story is good although dragged out in places.

Especially the efforts to stop the ship. One carefully placed air to ship missile would have would have stopped it.

Dirk Pitt and Al - What a Combination

Once again a great yarn with lots of adventure, excitement, history, classic cars and some sentimental moments. I recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure.
