Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Medusa, Clive Cussler and Paul Kemprecos's suspenseful thriller from the NUMA Files novels. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.

In the Micronesian Islands, a top-secret, US government-sponsored undersea lab conducting vital biomedical research on a rare jellyfish known as the Blue Medusa suddenly disappears. At the same time, off Bermuda, a bathysphere is attacked by an underwater vehicle. Stranded half a mile below the surface, its passengers are left to die. Only Kurt Austin's heroic measures can now save them from a watery grave.

Austin, suspecting a connection between the two mysterious events, puts the NUMA team on the case. He has no idea what he has just got them all into - a hideous series of medical experiments... an extraordinarily ambitious Chinese criminal organisation... a secret new virus that threatens to set off a world-wide pandemic.

Austin and NUMA have been in tight spots before, but this time it's not just their own skins they're trying to save - it's the lives of millions.

Pretty Much the same as all the others

I enjoy listening to these novels by Clive Cussler, they follow a predictable curve usually and the padding on the descriptions, convoluted histories and sardonic Americanisms just add to the surreal sense of not missing much.

If you own one of these books you own them all.

One of the best prologues of the Clive cuddled books

Sometimes these books are great just for the prologues and then the story let's it down but this one is a all rounder. Had actually read it before but still enjoyed listening to it.
Scott Brick has a great voice smooth and mellow with subtle accents so you can chill and absorb the story, sometimes actors over act particularly when reading female parts - Mr Brick does it just right
