THE SOLOMON CURSE by Clive Cussler with Russell Blake; Read by Scott Brick Audio Edition

Love hearing about exotic places you’ll never see, unspeakable villains who will stop at nothing
to achieve their deadly goals and spine tingling narrow escapes? Then a Clive Cussler story is for you!
This author has been thrilling and gaining fans for a number of years with dozens of bestsellers to his credit.
Most recently he has teamed with his son, Dirk Cussler, to deliver double whammies of suspense and derring-do.
Odessa Sea as narrated by the incomparable Scott Brick.

Cussler’s estimable hero Dirk Pitt, Director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, and his colleague Al Giordino have been trolling the Black Sea in search of a lost Ottoman shipwreck. Suddenly they hear Mayday, an urgent distress call from a nearby freighter. What they find is a ship carrying dead bodies and enriched uranium which has been stolen by underlings of Valentin Mankedo, a Bulgarian black market smuggler. At about the same time Dirk Junior and twin sister Summer are scoping another sea where they come upon what may be a pile of 1917 Romanov gold bullion.

Soon Anna Belova, a special investigator with Europol and her partner join Dirk and company in searching for Martin Hendriks, a Dutch businessman who is working on an agreement with the Russians to get a nuclear weapon. Now, as if the story needs any more excitement envision boat chases, commando raids and research submersibles that can fight each other. This is Cussler at the height of his powers and chair gripping listening for us.

Don’t miss it!
