Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kurt Austin and his NUMA team roar into action in this latest installment of the long-running NUMA Files series. Tasked by the president of the U.S. to find out what could have caused the devastating firestorms that demolished three oil rigs, Austin makes a startling discovery that leads him to an evil genius with plans to control the world's energy supply. It's fairly formulaic stuff, but that's no surprise; the NUMA files novels are pretty much identical structurally only the details change. But give the authors full credit for making their evil genius a woman. This isn't a spoiler: Cussler and Brown drop this revelation quite early on. Female villains of the evil-genius type are few and far between in the high-concept-adventure subgenre, and it's refreshing to find one here. And the writing goes less by the numbers than in some of the recent NUMA Files books. Cussler's devoted readership will find this among the better entries in the series.--David Pitt Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kurt Austin and the other members of the National Underwater Marine Agency must once again save the world in bestseller Cussler's solid 16th NUMA Files novel (after The Rising Sea, also with Brown). In the present, Tessa Franco, a "wealthy and brilliant designer who'd been called a modern-day Howard Hughes," and Arat Buran, a "shadowy but important player in the oil business," rediscover a deadly bacteria that feeds on oil and forms a sludge that blocks oil wells, originally found by a secret joint Franco-Israeli research project on a Mediterranean island in 1968. Franco and Buran plan to infect most of the globe's oil wells with the organisms, which will cause oil prices to soar, whereupon Buran will corner the oil market with his own uninfected wells, and Franco will supply the planet's energy needs with a new alternative energy device she has invented. Only Austin and company can stop their nefarious plot. Cussler fans know who will win in the end, but it's always fun to watch the NUMA guys and gals implementing their clever plans.
