When a Japanese cargo ship is destroyed while voyaging on the Pacific, the Japanese devised a plan to destroy the Western powers. The country turns to its hero, Dirk Pitt, to leap into action and is caught in a web of conspiracies, enemies, and destruction!

Clive Cussler, author of twenty consecutive New York Times bestsellers, brings {} hero Dirk Pitt in this electrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Japan, 1945: 2 US bombers eliminate nuclear bombs. Just one has through. The Pacific, 1993: A Western cargo ship bound for the United States is immediately, thunderously vaporized, taking it a Norwegian vessel. Japanese fanatics have developed a frightening plan to devastate and ruin the Western forces. In the ocean depths to the discovery of cache of missing Nazi loot, Dirk Pitt is untangling a barbarous conspiracy and sparking a bold counterattack. Even though Washington bureaucrats scramble, a barbarous industrialist orders his blackmail plot out of a secret island command centre. And Dirk, the dauntless hero of Sahara and Inca Gold, is shooting on death-dealing robots along with a human-hunting descendant of samurai warriors. Pitt alone controls the West's secret ace in the hole: a tidal wave of devastation waiting to be triggered by the sea floor!
