In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure - a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of biological virus. Neither sub made it to the designated target. But that does not mean they were lost. Someone knows about the subs and what they carried, knows too where they might be, and has an extraordinary plan in for the prize inside - a plan that could reshape the world as we know it. All that stands in the way are three people: a marine biologist named Summer, a marine engineer named Dirk, and their father, Dirk Pitt, the new head of NUMA. Pitt has faced devastating enemies before, has even teamed up with his children to track them down. But never has he looked upon the face of pure evil...until now. Filled with dazzling suspense and breathtaking action, Black Wind is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.

From AudioFile:

The chimera virus, a genetically mutated deadly brew, is released in a remote Alaskan village. Dirk Pitt and his sister, Summer, learn that Kang, a South Korean industrialist, is the culprit, and their death-defying pursuit of him ensues before Kang can loose more of the virus on the continental United States. Ron McLarty uses his versatile vocal range to flow easily between Asian and American accents, giving the impression of multiple narrators. When Dirk and Summer are captured and left to drown, he portrays their desperation with riveting bursts of staccato dialogue. This cunningly crafted thriller, filled with action and suspense, begins fast and only accelerates. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
