Publisher's Summary

Clive Cussler, "The Grand Master of Adventure", sends his intrepid heroes Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino on their wildest, boldest mission into the ancient world, unlocking extraordinary secrets and solving hideous crimes. Another fabulous story from the most beloved series from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.

The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador.... A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit.... An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile.... Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father 3,000 years ago.

During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and will threaten everyone and everything he knows - most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. 

Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.

What the critics say

“The scene settings are colorful, the characters appealing or despicable as needed....One darned thing after another keeps the Pitts in peril and will keep readers turning the pages.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Really not my cup of tea.

This book felt like a bad action movie. I found the plot beyond ridiculous and that made it hard to get draw into the narrative.

Very Disappointing- Celtic Boredom

I was hoping this story would be an expansion of the Fabulous Celtic Odyssey hinted in Polar Drift. Instead it was just a very forced formula book that was just OK. This one gets a “C”.

Scott Brick was his usual great reader of Cussler tales. But even he couldn’t save this one.

I waited for months hoping for a tale of Celtic Empire pre-history. Instead I got an average tale of modern greed and predictable pablum.

Always enjoy listening to Scott Brick

Excellent delivery, as usual by Scott Brick. I'd imagine that his job is made easier by the excellent work by Clive Cussler (and as of lately, his son Dirk)!
