When Kurt Austin, the leader of a courageous National Underwater & Marine Agency exploration team, rescues beautiful marine archaeologist Nina Kirov off the coast of Morocco, he becomes the next target of Texas industrialist Don Halcon. A madman bent on carving a new nation out of the southwestern United States and Mexico, Halcon's scheme hinges on Nina's recent discovery involving Christopher Columbus, and a priceless pre-Columbian antiquity buried in the battered remains of the sunken Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria. Only Kurt Austin and his crack NUMA team stand between Halcon and the Andrea Doria's silent steel hull -- and if their deadly mission fails, Halcon will ride to power on a wave of death and destruction.

Half way thru and doesn't seem like the usual Clive book... heavy on description and light on action

I cannot understand why Cussler suddenly decided to create a new pair of characters that are basically the same as his previous ones. The plot was typical of his previous books, lacking credibility but full of action and entertaining. I think one thing I'm starting to dislike very much about his writing is the James Bond wannabe personality he has been giving his heroes more and more in each book I read
