The world’s oil supply is vanishing, the stock market is plummeting, and the key to saving the future seems to be a baffling historical mystery. Can the NUMA crew crack it in time? Sea of Greed is the suspenseful new NUMA Files novels from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure.

After an explosion in the Gulf of Mexico destroys three oil rigs trying to revive a dying field, Kurt Austin and the NUMA Special Projects Team are tapped by the President of the United States to find out what’s gone wrong. The trail leads them to a brilliant billionaire in the alternative energy field. Her goal is the end of the oil age; her company has spent billions developing the worlds’ most advanced fuel-cell systems. But is she an environmental hero…or a rogue genetic engineer?

The NUMA crew discovers that the oil fields are infected with bacteria that are consuming the oil before it can be pumped out of the earth—a bacteria originally lost decades ago when two submarines vanished in the Mediterranean.

With hired killers on his trail, can Kurt Austin locate a submarine that’s remained hidden for more than fifty years? And even if he can, can the biological terror that’s been unleashed be stopped?

Story Locale: Mediterranean; Gulf of Mexico

Series Overview: Kurt Austin is head of the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency’s (NUMA) Special Assignments Team, a job that ensures he is no stranger to danger above or below the waves.

“The villain is diabolical, our heroes seem to have no way to win, and the action is relentless. In other words, the story is classic Cussler. The thought of the world running out of oil is terrifying, and that along with the wonderful cast of characters makes this one of the better entries in the NUMA Files series.”—Associated Press

“Fast-paced, imaginative fun. May Kurt and crew survive, as there’s a good series to continue.”Kirkus Reviews

“Female villains of the evil-genius type are few and far between in the high-concept-adventure subgenre, and it’s refreshing to find one here…Cussler’s devoted readership will find this among the better entries in the series.”Booklist

“Solid…Cussler fans know who will win in the end, but it’s always fun to watch the NUMA guys and gals implementing their clever plans.”Publishers Weekly
