NIGHTHAWK by Clive Cussler
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 30, 2017

"Cussler and company deliver another fun page-turner with a plot ranging from the highly improbable to the totally implausible."
Cussler and Brown (The Pharaoh's Secret, 2015, etc.) yank National Underwater and Marine Agency stalwart Kurt Austin off a Hawaiian beach where he's chasing big waves. He's needed to find the Nighthawk, an exotic spacecraft lost by the U.S. Air Force and the National Security Agency. Read full book review >

In Cussler's latest, this time with Brown co-authoring, an African dictator decides he gets no respect, and so woe betide the world. Read full book review >

A steady rain even hit ...
