JOIN THE LATEST THRILL RIDE FROM THE GRAND MASTER OF ADVENTURE, CLIVE CUSSLER _________ In 1959 a Skytrain plane flees Tibet - carrying a precious artefact - but after crossing the Himalayas it is never seen again . . . Sixty years later Dirk Pitt and NUMA are surveying near the Philippines when a rogue wave nearly sinks their ship. Diverting to rescue washed-away islanders, Pitt discovers the wave has raised a sunken relic - an ancient cargo plane. But before he can get to the bottom of one mystery, Pitt is hit with another: beat the Chinese military to find a lost hypersonic missile. Yet what should be a simple search and retrieve reveals evidence of a far more dangerous weapon. Because the rogue wave that almost sank Pitt and devastated the islands was no natural phenomenon.
