Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second very nearly is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.
What's so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top secret scientific project that could change the world forever.
And that's before the surprises really begin . . .
Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler's hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive's best yet.

Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire. He lives in Arizona.
Paul Kemprecos has coauthored all five previous NUMA Files novels with Cussler and is a Shamus Award-winning author of six underwater detective thrillers.
The Jeffersonian code? A hidden message from the early president to Merriweather Lewis may reveal the age-old secret that links a Phoenician statue to the legend of the Queen of Sheba. Solving that riddle may save the life of a UNESCO representative. Richard Ferrones tough, gravelly voice adds an extra layer of menace to action scenes and description, making the abridgment move swiftly. However, Ferrone makes some accents a little too thick. Theres also a long setup, which makes it seem like it takes heroes Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala too long to turn up. The plot involving a secret message may be familiar, but the latest National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) adventure moves briskly enough to satisfy adventure fans.
