Worth the time to see if Clive Cussler style is for you.
It's been a long time since I read a Clive Cussler book and the first that did not have Dirk Pitt as the main character (I read many of those). But, there are a lot of similarities between Dirk Pitt stories and stories involving the new protagonist, Kirt Austin. First, Cussler's books are slow starting, as you have to understand the history behind his tales before he launches into the modern story; second, unless you know something about t
This story was a little slower moving then I usually like it to be. It followed Kurt Austin in his pursuit against Oceanus and their mutant fish. Much more aggressive and massive than normal fish, they were causing havoc against small fisherman families. Kurt Austin and his usual partner Joe Zavala take on the case, but become really determined to stop Oceanus after they tried to murder them. Like always, the battle approaches Oceanus' front door as Kurt gets ready to stop them once and for all. ...more

A multinational company is secretly creating genetic freaks of nature - for their own financial gain obviously. Nobody really knows what is going on behind closed doors but when the local fishermen start reporting that the fish are disappearing the environmentalists try to stop them. In between these two opposing forces, enter our heroes Austin and Zavala resulting in all the ingredients needed for another action-packed novel.

“White Death” tells the story of an evil genius who wants to take economic control of the oceans. A process that starts out with the development of genetically engineered fish seems innocent enough. Then, killer fish are released into the oceans to eliminate the existing breeds. After the killer fish destroy the competition, the only game in town is Oceanus, the corporation behind the plot. They plan to use their hybrid fish farms to supply the world with its fish. It's up to Kurt Austin and his ...more
