Description

Kurt Austin and his crew are back to slake their thirst for action as they attempt to drown an eco-extortionist's plan to control the world's freshwater supply.

From deep within the Venezuelan rain forest emanates the legend of a white goddess and a mysterious tribe with startling technical accomplishments. Few believe the tribe exists, and even fewer suspect its deity can change the course of history.

For National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) crew leader Kurt Austin, an investigation into the sudden deaths of rare whales leads him to the Mexican coast. Meanwhile, in South America's lush hills, a specially assigned NUMA crew turns up the white-goddess legend - and a murderous cadre of bio-pirates intent on stealing medicinal secrets worth millions. Soon Austin and his crew realize they're working the opposite ends of the same grand scheme. A California agribusiness tycoon is poised to rise to power by monopolizing the earth's depleted freshwater reserves and dominate the world.

Austin has a hunch the mythical tribal goddess may be the key to locating a secret formula that could turn seawater into fresh. But with each step into the bush, he and his NUMA team feel like fish out of water, and they must fight a trail of enemies through a dense jungle of treachery and murder.

Abridged Under Troubled Waters

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I always enjoy Cussler, and David Purdman did a great job narrating the book. But I did not realize that it was the abridged version of Blue Gold when I purchased it. I was trying to follow it in the book while listening to it in my headphones. That was d fficult. I will never buy an abridged version again.

Good story regarding real issue.

Story lines interesting albeit a bit of a stretch in some spots. Narrator okay. Not sure why it was such a short book.

voices not convincing

another good Custler story, but some voices do not sound appropriate. To high pitched and nasal. Scott Brick is much better reader.

Dont Bother

Short, Pointless and Not typical Cussler. Dont bother. Mediocre at best. VERY Dissapointed. I Think I will return this one.

Poor Performance

This was like letting someone read a book to you. Normally the presenter has different "voices" for the different characters. I found Mr. Purdham made little effort to do so.
I will ask for my money back.
