Summary; A page-turner that involves the adventurer Dick Pitt. who finds a lost treasure. destroys an evil villain. & saves a woman's life while protecting the country from possible economic collapse. Following the runaway success of his first nonfiction book. 'The Sea Hunters.' Clive Cussler returns with his legendary fictional hero Dirk Pitt(R) -- in a masterfully crafted tale of villainy on the high seas and the Mississippi River that can only enhance his status as the grand master of adventure fiction. The coin of the realm for the wealthy. insatiably greedy Chinese smuggler who is Dirk Pitt's adversary in 'Flood Tide' is human lives: much of his vast fortune has been made smuggling Chinese immigrants into countries around the globe. including the United States. Tracking the smuggler's nefarious activities leads Pitt from Washington State to Louisiana. where his quarry is mysteriously constructing a huge shipping port in the middle of nowhere. Why has he chosen this unlikely location?
