Cussler’s best story in some time. At least this one is intersting. 8 of 10 stars.

Okay, I read Cussler’s books, and when he brings out a new one I keep reading them. However, as an ocean scientist I can’t help but find errors and excessive suspensions of disbelief. A quick web search uncovers phase diagrams of carbon dioxide. In order to pump it as a liquid (presumably at ambient air temperature for the long pipeline) you would have to pump it at 70 atmospheres pressure. Okay, it is physically possible (unlike some of his other books where the science is incredibly weak) but I just don’t see a crook paying for the technology required - it’s expensive for that kind of line on a small scale much less thousands of miles.

The book in general is pretty formulaic, but I suppose that’s what makes a long series like this successful.
