Description
Shock Wave by Clive Cussler
A MYSTERIOUS PLAGUE IN THE ANTARCTIC...
A DIAMOND EMPIRE RUN BY AN EVIL GENIUS...
A DEVASTATING NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT THREATENS TO ANNHILATE MILLIONS!

Tasman Sea, 1856. A British clipper ship bound for Australia's penal colony is crushed in a raging typhoon. A few pitiful survivors wash up on a deserted island. Among them are Betsy Fletcher and Jess Dorsett, who discover an immense supply of exquisite diamonds....

Seymour Island, Antarctica, 2000. DIRK PITT rescues Maeve Fletcher, a descendant of Betsy and Jess, after an unknown cataclysm kills thousands of marine animals plus nearly two hundred people aboard a cruise ship. Pitt traces the carnage to the global diamond operations of Maeve's father, Arthur Dorsett, and her callous sisters. 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!
