Tibet, 1959: In the turmoil of the Communist takeover of the mountain kingdom, a Buddhist artefact of immense importance appears to have been lost to history. Until, sixty years later, clues to its survival emerge from the wreckage of a cargo plane discovered deep beneath the surface of the Philippine Sea . . .
NUMA Director Dirk Pitt and his old friend Al Giordino already have their hands full dealing with the recovery of a top secret hypersonic missile that went down in the Luzon Strait. Especially when it becomes clear that a rogue Chinese military team has its sights set on the same prize. And that, after making their own earth-shattering discovery about what lies below the waves, they're prepared to go to any lengths to ensure that they possess it.
Any lengths at all.
From the cold, dark depths of the Pacific Ocean to the vertiginous peaks of the Himalayas, only Pitt, his son and daughter, Summer and Dirk Jr, can unravel the mysteries that will preserve a religion, save a nation, and bring the world back from the brink of war.
The Devil's Sea is white-knuckled adventure in the finest Cussler tradition, delivering a thrilling new masterpiece of page-turning intrigue and exhilarating suspense. Not for nothing was Clive Cussler known as the 'grand master of adventure'.
