A TRAIL OF VICIOUS MURDERS... A MAZE OF STOLEN CARGOES... A PLOT AS COLD AND RUTHLESS AS THE SEA!
A deadly tide of poison flows into ocean waters. A ghost ship drifts across the empty northern Pacific. A luxury Soviet liner blazes into a funeral pyre. The Presidential yacht cruises the Potomac night--and the President disappears without a trace.
Dirk Pitt, the swashbuckling hero in Cussler bestsellers from Raise the Titanic! to Pacific Vortex, returns in an intercontinental duel of nerves with a sinister Asian shipping empire. In his most dangerous, fast-paced adventure, he fights to save the U.S. government--and to seize one desperate moment of revenge!
