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....

Great story, Dirk is full of fun and Al as well. Loved hearing the Oregon story. Please get the other dozen or so books on audible as soon as possible.

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.

Enjoyable Classic Cussler!

I'm on a Clive Cussler tangent right now using up all my Audible credits on The Dirk Pitt and the NUMA series. I guess there is something special about the line of escapism and adventure these stories offer during the COVID pandemic. I really only have one (or two) pet peeves in all of these books: I feel horrible when they never have time to heal their wounds before getting all banged up again and they rarely have time to eat to keep up their strength. Please, FEED these characters!!! They need fuel in their bodies and healing in their bones so that they can continue to save the world in extraordinary ways! I do love these books, though. Especially the consistent sense of humor. I frequently laugh out loud, which is a nice break in the tense moments.

easy listening

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

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.
