An alarming rise in the world's sea levels--much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt--sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers.
...another entertaining and diverting read from a true legend in the adventure business. Unlike the other series in the Cussler brand of novels, the NUMA Files runs the closest to invoking the classic feel of James Bond reimagined as an oceanographer.
By now, readers basically know what to expect with one of Cussler’s thrillers: plenty of action, scientific research, a couple of twists, and a whole lot of suspense written into a fast-moving, though unlikely, plot. Cussler doesn’t reinvent the wheel with The Rising Sea, but let’s be honest, he didn’t need to.
