"NUMA crew leaders Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala must beat the clock to stop the world's most dazzling new technological advance from becoming mankind's last in this action-packed thriller from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure. When the most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are drawn into a deadly contest to locate the fallen machine. Russia and China covet the radical technology, but the United States worries about a darker problem. They know what others don't--that the X-37 is carrying a dangerous secret, a payload of exotic matter, extracted from the upper reaches of the atmosphere and stored at a temperature near absolute zero. As long as it remains frozen, the cargo is inert, but if it thaws, it will unleash a catastrophe of nearly unthinkable proportions. From the Galapagos Islands to the jungles of South America to an icy mountain lake many believe to be the birthplace of the Inca, the entire NUMA team will risk everything in an effort to avert disaster. but they may be caught in a race that no one can win"-- Provided by publisher.

This is Clive Cussler in his element - a tale of great action and adventure if you're totally willing to suspend disbelief to the edge of science fiction. An entertaining read and escape from reality.

Classic Cussler (and Brown). Entertaining, great story line, fun characters. Usual improbable saves, but that's what makes their books so fun. I will say though, that this one was a cut above in that the story line was developed with more depth than usual - and that was a very happy plus for me. Still some mystery though - who was leaker? Enjoy!

This is definitely one of my favourite Clive Cussler adventures! I'd recommend to anyone. It was a solid story and a great deal of fun. Any sequel to this should be equally intriguing....
