Dirk Pitt returns in Havana Storm, the thrilling new novel from the grand master of adventure and No.1 New York Times bestselling author, Clive Cussler. While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous - a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings the pair both to Cuba as well - and squarely into harm's way. Pitt father, son and daughter have been in desperate situations before ... but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.

Mentre sta indagando insieme ad Al Giordino, suo inseparabile compagno d’avventure, su una terribile e misteriosa epidemia che dilaga nel Mar dei Caraibi e che rischia di minacciare gli Stati Uniti, Dirk Pitt, l’Indiana Jones dei mari, si trova coinvolto suo malgrado in qualcosa di infinitamente più pericoloso: una lotta per il controllo del potere nella Cuba post Castro... Nel frattempo i suoi figli, l’ingegnere navale Dirk jr e l’oceanografa Summer, sono sulle tracce di un’antichissima pietra azteca che potrebbe condurre alla scoperta di un tesoro dal valore incalcolabile.
