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 them both to Cuba as well--and squarely into harm's way. The three of them have been in desperate situations before, but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.

A very superficial book with little character development and unbelievable story lines. It's a very light read.

As another reviewer said, rather confusing. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I had expected. Although other Cussler fans would find it exciting, I found myself unable to suspend my reality - how many times can the characters save themselves? Also, I would not recommend it.

Had a hard time finding a spot to take a break from reading this.

Typical Dirk Pitt novel. A good read however.

Havana Storm --- by --- Clive Cussler. As usual, Cussler hits another one out the ballpark. As we’ve come to expect in his Dirk Pitt novels, there lots of nautical action. Submersibles; really bad guys; lots of things getting blown up; people getting rescued just in time before of geothermal vent is about to be blown up: these are the everyday ingredients that we’ve come to expect in a Cussler novel. No great character development (do these guys even have a character?); no take-away moral lesson; no universal truths; and certainly no heart-rendering chick lit ideas. Just the usual thump-thumping action that has endeared us Cussler fans to Cussler. Great fun for fans. Its what Cussler writes; it’s what his followers have come to expect. And once again, he delivers.
