Description

Clive Cussler the UK NO. 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR introduces yet another action-packed adventure to the gripping NUMA Files series . . . When the most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific, NUMA operatives 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 . . . will they get caught in a race that no one can win?

Texte du rabat

A doomed aircraft
Flying over the South Pacific, the most technologically advanced spacecraft ever built vanishes into thin air. Both China and Russia would kill for the secrets it contains.

An unstable cargo
Kurt Austin and the NUMA team are drawn into a stealthy race to locate the wreck, before someone else does. Only the United States know that waiting in its debris is a payload, stripped from the outermost reaches of the atmosphere.

A devastating weapon
Kept at absolute zero, the cargo is so unstable that it could obliterate the face of the earth if allowed to thaw. In a race they cannot lose, the NUMA team will risk everything to stop the world's most dazzling research from being the very thing that destroys it. The fate of humanity depends on them.
