Publisher's Summary

Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second very nearly is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.

What's so special about this statue? Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top-secret scientific project that could change the world forever.

And that's before the surprises really begin....

Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless invention that have become Cussler's hallmarks, The Navigator is Clive's best yet.

Critic Reviews

"The compelling, well-organized plot - taken from a template that works - includes such disparate but ultimately workable elements as a foiled hijacking, a secret scientific project, pirates, a beautiful woman...and the heroic machinations of the NUMA sleuths. Without exactly revealing the ending, suffice it to say - or, actually, suffice it to pose the question, Has the NUMA team ever failed in its quest for justice?" ( Booklist)

Narrated by ???? NOT BY Scott Brick

I prefer the unabridged audio books, but since this was only available as abridged And was supposed to be Scott Brick I decided to give it a go.
Sorry to whomever is actually narrating this book ,but these long established characters live in my imagination and I couldn't get into the story.
Audible you need to credit the correct narrator
