When the most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are drawn into a deadly contest to locate the fallen machine. Russia and China covet the radical technology, but the United States worries about a darker problem. They know what others don't, that the X-37 is carrying a dangerous secret, a payload of exotic matter, extracted from the upper reaches of the atmosphere and stored at a temperature near absolute zero. As long as it remains frozen, the cargo is inert, but if it thaws, it will unleash a catastrophe of nearly unthinkable proportions.

Classic Cussler (and Brown). Entertaining, great story line, fun characters. Usual improbable saves, but that's what makes their books so fun. I will say though, that this one was a cut above in that the story line was developed with more depth than usual - and that was a very happy plus for me. Still some mystery though - who was leaker? Enjoy!

This is definitely one of my favourite Clive Cussler adventures! I'd recommend to anyone. It was a solid story and a great deal of fun. Any sequel to this should be equally intriguing....
