“The twist ending fits neatly into the Cussler canon. Series fans will be pleased.” Publishers Weekly

Cussler and Brown concoct a nifty plot with disparate, sometimes over-the-top twists that will make even hardcore adventure fans say ‘Wow!’…This is fast-paced, nonstop fun. Cussler fans will gobble it up.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Entertaining and diverting…invok[es] the classic feel of James Bond re-imagined as an oceanographer.” Associated Press, praise for the series
