In Medusa, a series of seemingly unrelated events combine into a cold, calculated scheme which will kill millions of people and dangle the fates of nations in the hands of a few Chinese madmen. The story begins in 1848 on the whaling ship, Princess, when the crew falls under a strange illness while sailing the Pacific. The strange potion that cures them is remarkable and most of the men live to a ripe old age, relatively free of disease. Years later, a strain of the virus which afflicted the men of the Princess, rears its ugly head again. Ruthless experiments on human patients test a cure of sorts, but the virus threatens to leap the bounds of containment and it's finally time to destroy the evidence - the patients themselves. A disgraced Chinese physician, Dr. Song Lee, is plucked from the remote countryside and rushed to assist with the research for a cure. Unfortunately, research performed at Bonefish Key is linked to a savage attack on a bathysphere, stranding two men on the bottom of a very cold, dark ocean. Rescue barely comes in time and the researchers struggle to understand how the two events are connected. Meanwhile, a Chinese criminal group with ties all around the world, disguises itself behind Pyramid, a huge organization with great power and influence. Dr. Lee's successes in working toward a cure for the virus threaten Pyramid's plans to allow a worldwide outbreak, with Pyramid holding the only vaccine. As such, Pyramid could name its price for the vaccine, enslaving governments desperate to save their people. Dr. Lee cannot be allowed to continue. A ruthless assassin closes in to silence Dr. Lee once and for all! Fast paced and frighteningly real, this book is a real page turner. Crisp details of massive submarines, undersea laboratories, government politics and twisted, insane minds are interwoven with the bonds of friendship, technical expertise, love and desperation into a riveting account. From the moment you crack the cover, you won't want to put this book down. Worthy of a second read, to catch some of the details.

I stopped reading this book about halfway through. It isn't a bad book - I simply lost interest. It is still worth giving it a go, though.

It had been a while since I read a Clive Cussler novel. I read the first chapter in the store and bought the book to finish it. The first chapter is vintage Cussler. It grabbed me instantly. The rest of the book was an enjoyable high seas adventure.
