When the NUMA crew is exposed to a dangerous toxin, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala will stop at nothing to find a cure foretold by Ancient Egyptian lore in this exhilarting novel from the #1New York Times bestselling series
Head of NUMA special assignments, Kurt Austin and his most trusted friend, Joe Zavala tangle with a ruthless powerbroker scheming to build a new Egyptian empire as glorious as those of the Pharaohs. Part of their adversary's plan rests on the manipulation of a newly discovered aquifer beneath the Sahara, but an even more devastating weapon at his disposal may threaten the entire world: a plant extract known as the black mist, discovered in the City of the Dead and rumored to have the power to take life from the living and restore it to the dead.
With the balance of power in Africa and Europe on the verge of tipping, Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team will have to fight to discover the truth behind the legends but to do that, they have to confront in person the greatest legend of them all: Osiris, the ruler of the Egyptian underworld.

In bestseller Cussler's 13th NUMA Files novel (after 2014's Ghost Ship, also coauthored with Brown), it's business as usual for Kurt Austin of the National Underwater and Marine Agency as he and his cohorts battle modern-day mad men armed with an ancient deadly weapon. Kurt and partner Joe Zavala are diving for relics in the Mediterranean when they respond to a distress call from a nearby island, where they find hundreds of people who have been put into a state of suspended animation after inhaling an ancient Egyptian substance called the Black Mist. The man controlling the mist, Tariq Shakir, a former member of the Egyptian secret police, has built an organization, Osiris, whose goal is to conquer all of North Africa. Shakir is also draining an aquifer deep beneath the Sahara, which will bring Tunisia, Algeria, and Libya under his control. Toss in vast underground chambers, pits of voracious alligators, Napoleon's foray into Egypt, mummified bullfrogs, and you could be anywhere in any number of other Cussler novels. But no matter the recycling of the same old stuff; Cussler fans will be perfectly happy. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (Nov.)
