The Storm

NUMA Files #10




A nerve-shredding Kurt Austin thriller from the top ten bestseller Clive Cussler

A deadly, unstoppable force has just been unleashed on the world . . .

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel spots what the crew believe is a slick of oil. But as their boat sails into this liquid they quickly find that it is something far more deadly. In moments everyone aboard is killed, and only a flaming wreck is left.

Quickly, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala of NUMA are dispatched to investigate. What they find on recovering the smoldering hulk leads them to the discovery of an audacious scheme to permanently alter the earth. It will kill millions - and it is already well underway.

Who could be behind it, and why? Questions Austin and Zavala must answer if they are to somehow prevent murder on a global scale . . .

Clive Cussler is the author of over twenty-five internationally bestselling books, including the Dirk Pitt adventure series, the NUMA Files novels and the Oregon Files Adventures.

He grew up in Alhambra, California. He later attended Pasadena City College for two years, but then enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War where he served as an aircraft mechanic and flight engineer in the Military Air Transport Service. Upon his discharge, he became a copywriter and later creative director for two leading ad agencies.

Cussler began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. Because of this work the Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May of 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is the founder the National Underwater & Marine Agency, (NUMA), a non-profit organisation that dedicates itself to American maritime and naval history. In addition to being Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London.

A noted collector of classic automobiles, Cussler owns 85 of the finest examples of custom coachwork and 50's convertibles to be found anywhere. They are garaged near Golden, Colorado. Today, Cussler divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.
