Can't Wait Wednesday - The Rising Sea by Clive Cussler & Graham Brown (@cusslerOFFICIAL)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

The Rising Sea by Clive Cussler & Graham Brown
Expected publication: March 13, 2018 by G.P. Putnam's Sons

Everywhere, waters are rising--and that is just the beginning of the world's peril, unless the NUMA crew can beat the clock in this thrilling novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure.

An alarming rise in the world's sea levels--much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt--sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers. What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined: a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power--and in the process displace as many as a billion people.

A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of five-hundred-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin - from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

Clive Cussler has been a favorite of mine, ever since I first discovered Raise the Titanic as a young man, already fascinated by Robert Ballard's ongoing discoveries. Cussler is always good for a mix of history, adventure, discovery, science, and thrills.


  1. I see Clive Cussler novels around everywhere, but I have no idea what any of his books are about.

    1. Good mix of science, history, adventure, and thrills - a little bit of Indiana Jones, James Bond, and MacGyver.

  2. Clive Cussler is indeed great on adventure and he owns some spectacular vintage cars. My husband and I got to see some of them one time when Cussler did an author event. Enjoy!

  3. I don't think I've ever read Clive Cussler, but wow this blurb makes me want to read this book !

  4. This is a new one to me, sounds really good!

  5. Ooh, another interesting looking Clive Cussler book!
