Overview

Shock Wave (Dirk Pitt Series #13) by Clive Cussler


A Mysterious Plague in the Antarctic...
A Diamond Empire Run by an Evil Genius...
A Devastating New Technology...


NUMA agent DIRK PITT® is investigating the baffling deaths of thousands of Antarctic marine animals when he stumbles on something even more chilling. The passengers and crew of a cruise ship all died simultaneously and instantly, leaving stranded on a remote island whaling station a small party of tourists led by the beautiful Maeve Fletcher. And the carnage is just beginning, as Pitt's investigation leads him to Maeve's estranged father and sisters, owners of the global diamond cartel Dorsett Consolidated Mining. 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!

I have read almost all of Cussler's amazing repetoire of books. I have never enjoyed a series more and wait with baited breath for the arrival of the next. Although some say that the endings of his book are obvious and there is no real internal conflict (both of which I disagree with) it's really the carrying out of the amazing feats that awe me. Cussler's intricate webs and subtle foreshadowings leave all readers I've talked to with their jaws agape. I can literally stay up through the night (ignoring my homework until the wee hours of the morning) just to finish one of his books. And this had to be one of my two favorite books of all time.

I just finished reading Shockwave. What a great story. I couldn't put it down for a week. There is so much going on in this book, diamonds, disaster, conspiracy, and heroisim. I cried when Al Gordino had to leave Dirk and Maeve on the yacht and again as Dirk held Maeve in his arms and sang 'Moon River' for the last time.
