Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second very nearly is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.

What's so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top secret scientific project that could change the world forever.

And that's before the surprises really begin...

Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler's hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive's best yet.

Review:

"Fans of action-hero Kurt Austin of the National Underwater and Maritime Agency expect imaginative plotting, but it never comes down the chute in this seventh NUMA Files novel from bestseller Cussler and Shamus-winner Kemprecos (after Polar Shift). Austin and his team are hunting icebergs when they chance upon a pirate raid aimed at stealing a priceless Phoenician antiquity launched by a stereotypical megalomaniacal villain, Viktor Baltazar, who believes he's a descendant of King Solomon. Baltazar and Austin joust continually (once, literally!) over the antique, which may be connected to the lost ark of the covenant, Thomas Jefferson and the suspicious death of Meriwether Lewis. Sequences including the attempted human sacrifice of the requisite gorgeous female U.N. investigator are all too predictable, and the writing ('The Filipino's lips curved like slices of liverwurst in a frying pan') is often less than Cussler's best. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The compelling, well-organized plot...includes such disparate but ultimately workable elements as a foiled hijacking, a secret scientific project, pirates, a beautiful woman....Cussler's multitude of fans will undoubtedly eat up this new novel just as they have previous ones." Booklist

Synopsis:

For six books, Cussler has chronicled the adventures of Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA special Assignments Team, in "spine-tingling" (Chicago Tribune) stories. His new tale, however, is the most audaciously imaginative of all.

Synopsis:

In the seventh novel of the NUMA Files, Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team search for an ancient Phoenicians statue that could change history and are led on a hunt for the truth that few will survive. Available in a tall Premium Edition.

Synopsis:

The most remarkable novel yet in the number-one New York Times-bestselling series.

Synopsis:

A search for a relic that could change history?

A hunt for the truth that few will survive?

I'm giving this book 5 stars and recommending it to all my friends because even though it is a big book it is fast paced and very exciting. It covers everyone and everything from Thomas Jefferson and Merriwether Lewis to submersible corvettes ( that's subvettes to you and me). All these are tied up in an intriguing mystery about a statue called The Navigator.
