Cussler the elder could always be counted on to serve up an action-packed Dirk Pitt thriller. Now, with help from his son, also named Dirk, and accomplished narrator Scott Brick, the action is ratcheted up to a frenetic pace. In this eighteenth Pitt adventure, a villain has harvested a deadly toxin from two sunken WWII Japanese submarines, intending to release the substance on a sleeping world. How Pitt and his family (his daughter is also involved) save mankind this time is not for the telling. Suffice it to say that Brick's slick performance does justice not only to the plot, but also to the assortment of foreign characters whose accents ring true. His voluble reading makes the hours of listening fly by. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
