Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

What begins as a snake hunt leads Cabrillo onto the trail of a far more lethal quarry - a deranged militant and his followers who plan to unleash the devastating power of nature itself against all who oppose them.

Great story! As always, Clive writes a page-turner that you just can't put down.

Cussler has to be praised for his consistency if not for his originality. Once you've read a couple of his books, you've read them all. Only the locations and the name of the villains change.

Hey guys. Listen up.
This is my third Cussler Novel. My first was so long ago I can’t remember much about it --- just so much pap for the action starved brain. Everybody wants pap every now and then, right? But within a couple of weeks now, this is my third Cussler novel. It could best be summed up in that memorable quote from one of those two guys on the discovery channel: “Let’s blow something up”.
‘Cause that’s what happens in a novel that bristles with AK-47s, RPGs, M-4As, M-16s, Glocks and Uzis, FN-FALs. And that’s just the half of it.
The men in this novel are REAL MEN sculpted out of titanium --- they literally defy death. And the women, one or two in the novel, are almost as though. There’s neither love nor sex nor any of that yucky stuff --- the most we get is a chaste peck on the cheek about two pages from the end of the book. These guys don’t have time for any of that sort of stuff --- they’re too busy saving the world from the antics of a wide-eyed, unbelievably wealthy eco-terrorist who figures he can get the world to pay attention to the planet’s ecological mess by creating a super hurricane and spinning it to towards the American coast. But even this challenge is no problem for the Corporation and its feisty collection of superheroes --- it’s the kind of assignment they can knock off before morning coffee-break.
Is it a good read you say guys? Oh yea. Would it make a good action game? Yea. It would probably blow up your Blackberry for a grand finale. So when are they gonna turn this into an action movie?
