Clive Cussler, author of over twenty consecutive New York Times bestsellers, brings back beloved hero Dirk Pitt in this electrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Japan, 1945: Two US bombers take off with atomic bombs. Only one gets through.

The Pacific, 1993: A Japanese cargo ship bound for the United States is instantly, thunderously vaporized, taking with it a Norwegian vessel. Japanese fanatics have developed a chilling plan to devastate and destroy the Western powers. From the ocean depths to the discovery of cache of lost Nazi loot, Dirk Pitt is untangling a savage conspiracy and igniting a daring counterattack. While Washington bureaucrats scramble, a brutal industrialist commands his blackmail scheme from a secret island control center. And Dirk, the dauntless hero of Sahara and Inca Gold, is taking on death-dealing robots and a human-hunting descendant of samurai warriors. Pitt alone controls the West’s secret ace in the hole: a tidal wave of destruction waiting to be triggered on the ocean floor!

From the Publisher:

Deep beneath the Pacific lies the greatest secret of World War II -- a crashed B-29 bomber, and the nuclear payload it carried toward Japan in 1045. Now, a group of Japanese extremists are placing nuclear devices in compact cars shipped to strategic U.S. cities. While America is held hostage, Dirk Pitt is called on to spearhead a desperate counterattack. From Washington to the Orient -- this is his most explosive adventure yet!
