Medusa by Clive Cussler with Paul Kemprecos

Medusa by Clive Cussler with Paul Kemprecos

A Kurt Austin NUMA files mystery

Caleb Nye, a farm boy on his first whaling voyage in 1848, is swallowed by a whale but the whale is caught and when it's cut open, Caleb Nye has survived. But his skin and hair have been bleached white and remain that way the rest of his life. Later he and the crew stop at an island and are infected with a deadly flu-like virus. They make it to another island before they all succumb only to barely remember some native tribesmen who heal them because they assume Caleb Nye is some kind of ghost god. Again with the primitive natives having some kind of special wisdom or miraculous cure. The crew are healed and enjoy good health the rest of their lives. The Captain becomes wealthy due to his good whale oil haul and Caleb Nye becomes wealthy because he gives shows where he recites his story of being swallowed by a whale and healed by native islanders.

Now to modern day, China has developed a flu virus but it has gotten out and begun infecting people. A Chinese triad (gang) is desperate to find a vaccine not to save lives but to hold the world hostage and make money off the vaccine. They hijack an American undersea laboratory that had been secretly working on vaccines. Kurt Austin and his team save the day.

Another exciting story by Cussler. I don't think it was up to par as his others but still a good read. It follows his normal, but successful, storylines. I would recommend it to any age.
