Clive Cussler is rapidly becoming another of my favorite book authors joining the ranks of Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy. In fact, just saw a movie entitled Sahara which is based on the book by Cussler. Anyway, Polar Shift is the unabridged audio book that I just finished. Yes, written by Cussler.<br/><br/>The book starts with the sinking of a passenger boat full of people escaping from Germany during WWII. The next action is the sinking in a whirlpool of a massive state-of-the-art modern cargo container ship. From that point it gets interesting...

Cussler Strikes Again!<br/>
