Novidade, falar-se várias vezes de Portugal e de portugueses. Is it connected to the kidnapping of a top scientist from the streets of Geneva? Or the discovery of an extraordinary underwater graveyard of ships and planes littered across the seafloor? We start in the Azores with Hudson Wallace great name! I did kind of expect that Cussler could afford a copyeditor, but with all the articles that were missing in this story. O presente livro captou-me a atenção por ver envolvido o nome dos Açores e também porque o nome do autor já me havia despertado alguma curiosidade, decidi então empreender a leitura do livro. Today's literary marketplace seems to have some growing trends that make it harder for readers to find their way.
Enter a megalomaniac African dictator, a ship's graveyard next to a magnetic anomaly, missing cargo and kidnapped scientists. Kurt Austin is such a hero. It just takes one mistake to set the good guys on the bad guys. Those in power are more interested in feathering their Swiss bank accounts than in helping their fellow countrymen. A fitting climax to the story.
Be sure to read the Prologue. I'll always be a Cussler fan. The novel focuses on a power-hungry tyrant that controls the African country of Sierra Leone - to the detriment of its people and his opposition - who has bought or kidnapped scientists connected with electromagnetics to work on his direct-energy particle weapon. Only Kurt recognizes one of the pirates as a mercenary from his past. Is it connected to the kidnapping of a top scientist from the streets of Geneva?

Then there's the corruption that's almost more a part of life than life itself in third world countries. Someone Kurt has had previous dealings with long ago. But you're worth every penny. Co-written with , this installment is the ninth of that series which features the main character Kurt Austin. From the blurb: A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azores - when it bursts into flames.
The bad guy is out to destroy or control the world and the hero of course, saves it! Hardly do principles of superconducting, particle acceleration and inexplicably powerful compounds make for compelling reading. I have been a fan every since and look forward to each and every book in any of the series. This one I actually put down every once in awhile as my mind wandered. The series are which use and action elements. A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azoreswhen it bursts into flames.
Jump forward a few years and a ship is destroyed by some mystery weapon, the surviving crew shot and the wreck sent to the bottom of the ocean.

Because Michaels didn't write it either. I guess I should've known.
