A Mysterious Plague in the Antarctic...

NUMA agent DIRK PITT® is investigating the baffling deaths of thousands of Antarctic marine animals when he stumbles on something even more chilling. The passengers and crew of a cruise ship all died simultaneously and instantly, leaving stranded on a remote island whaling station a small party of tourists led by the beautiful Maeve Fletcher. And the carnage is just beginning, as Pitt's investigation leads him to Maeve's estranged father and sisters, owners of the global diamond cartel Dorsett Consolidated Mining. From a chilling escape at a high-security Canadian mine to a tiny boat adrift on lonely, shark-infested seas, the ingenious Pitt is racing to thwart Dorsett's ruthless plans -- before an unthinkable disaster claims millions of innocent lives!

Review:

In this explosive Dirk Pitt novel by the author of Inca Gold, Pitt meets the most intriguing and sinister villain of his adventurous and legendary career--a billionaire Australian diamond king with whom he must wage conflict above and below the sea for the survival of vast numbers of sea creatures and more than a million human beings. Only Clive Cussler--the Grandmaster of Adventure--could have written a story this suspenseful.

From the Publisher:

On an expedition to find the source of a mysterious plague killing the seals and dolphins of the Weddell Sea, Dirk Pitt makes a surprise discovery -- a party of cruise ship passengers, apparently adandoned on an icy Antarctic island with no hope of escape. Pitt rescues the party from certain death, dut soon discovers a connection between the underwater slaughter and one of the passengers, whose family has built an immense tropical diamond dynasty in the wake of a 19th-century high sea tragedy. In a deadly race against time, only Dirk Pitt can stop the family's murderous mining operations and head off a disaster that will kill millions -- and face down the most intriguing and sinister villain of his legendary career.
