Zero Hour (Numa Files Series #11)
The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series
from the grand master of adventure.
CLIVE CUSSLER'S NUMA FILES novels continue to deliver the "action, over-the-horizon technical wizardry, beautiful and talented women and exotic locations" (Kirkus Reviews) that readers and critics relish alike. "Cussler [is] still plotting at the top of his game," exclaimed Publishers Weekly about The Storm. But with Zero Hour, Cussler takes the NUMA Special Assignments Team on their most high-stakes adventure yet.
It is called zero-point energy, and it really exists--a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever figured out how to tap into it, however--until one scientist finds a way. But he does not intend to use his discovery for good. Rejected and vilified by the international community, he plans to use zero-point energy to exact terrifying revenge on entire nations, constructing machines of unthinkable destruction ... machines that could unleash world-altering earthquakes and create fissures in tectonic plates. He claims that the fate of whole continents will be his to command. But the truth may be more terrifying still, for others believe that once the force of zero-point energy is released ... it cannot be controlled.
Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA team begin a desperate race to find these deadly machines and destroy them before they're activated. But other parties are also in the hunt, and their goals may be more sinister. From the barren plains of the Australian outback to the crashing waves of the Great Southern Ocean to a volcanic, icebound island, the team will risk everything to stop the devastation before it's too late.
Rich with the endless imagination and explosive action that are his hallmarks, Zero Hour is another thrilling work that's classic Cussler.
