A mysterious plague in the Antarctic...

A diamond empire run by an evil genius...

A devastating new technology that threatens to annihilate millions!

Tasman Sea, 1856. A British clipper ship bound for Australia's penal colony is crushed in a raging typhoon. A few pitiful survivors wash up on a deserted island. Among them are Betsy Fletcher and Jess Dorsett, who discover an immense supply of exquisite diamonds...

Seymour Island, Antarctica, 2000. Dirk Pitt rescues Maeve Fletcher, a descendant of Betsy and Jess, after an unknouwn cataclysm kills thousands of marine animals plus nearly two hundred people aboard a cruise ship. Pitt traces the carnage to the global diamond operations of Maeve's father, Arthur Dorsett, and her callous sisters. From a chilling escape at a high-security Canadian mine to a tiny boat adrift on lonely, shark-infested seas, the ingenious Pitt is racing to thwart Dorsett's ruthless plans -- before an unthinkable disaster claims millions of innocent lives!

Review :

In this explosive Dirk Pitt novel by the author of Inca Gold, Pitt meets the most intriguing and sinister villain of his adventurous and legendary career--a billionaire Australian diamond king with whom he must wage conflict above and below the sea for the survival of vast numbers of sea creatures and more than a million human beings. Only Clive Cussler--the Grandmaster of Adventure--could have written a story this suspenseful.

From the Publisher :

On an expedition to find the source of a mysterious plague killing the seals and dolphins of the Weddell Sea, Dirk Pitt makes a surprise discovery -- a party of cruise ship passengers, apparently adandoned on an icy Antarctic island with no hope of escape. Pitt rescues the party from certain death, dut soon discovers a connection between the underwater slaughter and one of the passengers, whose family has built an immense tropical diamond dynasty in the wake of a 19th-century high sea tragedy. In a deadly race against time, only Dirk Pitt can stop the family's murderous mining operations and head off a disaster that will kill millions -- and face down the most intriguing and sinister villain of his legendary career.
