Staff Pick: "Zero Hour" by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown

A Kurt Austin Adventure from the NUMA files

Library Copies
It is called zero point energy, and it really exists—a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however—until one scientist discovers a way. But he does not intend to use his discovery for good. Rejected and vilified by the international community, he plans to use zero-point energy to exact terrifying revenge on entire nations, constructing machines of unthinkable destruction… machines that could unleash world-altering earthquakes and create fissures in tectonic plates. He claims that the fate of whole continents will be his to command. But the truth may be more terrifying still. For others believe that once the force of zero-point energy is released… it cannot be controlled.
Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA team begin a desperate race to find these deadly machines and destroy them before they’re activated. But other parties are also in the hunt, and theirgoals may be more sinister. From barren plains of the Australian outback to the crashing waves of the Great Southern Ocean, to a volcanic, icebound island, the team will risk everything to stop the devastation before it’s too late. Rich with the endless imagination and explosive action that are his hallmarks, Zero Hour is another thrilling work that’s classic Cussler. — from book flap.
