This is possibly the last in Cussler's series of Dirk Pitt adventures. Pitt and his sidekick, Al Giordino, investigate the origins of a black tide, rescue those caught in a mega-hurricane, and puzzle over artifacts unearthed by Pitt's twin son and daughter. Scott Brick is excellent at conveying the excitement that builds in each chapter as heroes battle villains in continuous action fraught with danger. Characters' voices are well drawn for the most part, though Brick's French accent leaves a little to be desired. There's not much suspense here as the good guys always win and the evil-doers are vanquished, but an enjoyable listen nevertheless. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
