Gennaio 1954. Un Boeing C-97 Stratocruiser decolla dalla base militare di Buckley Field, nel Colorado. Nome in codice: Vixen 03. Carico top secret: 36 micidiali bombe batteriologiche. Destinazione: Pacifico meridionale. Dopo poche ore di volo, l'aereo scompare nel nulla. Dopo quattro mesi di ricerche la pratica del Vixen 03 viene archiviata, e profondamente insabbiata. Oltre trent'anni dopo, Dirk Pitt scopre il Vixen 03 sul fondo di un lago ghiacciato. Recupera il relitto e 34 bombe. Ne mancano due: che fine hanno fatto? Che cosa succederebbe se un’organizzazione terroristica ci mettesse le mani sopra?

Vixen 03 flips back and forth between Dirk Pitt's discovery of a plane wreck in a Colorado lake and a civil war brewing in South Africa.

Vintage Cussler at his best, that grabs your attention and holds it no matter how many times you read it, and in spite of how old and dated (especially the South Africa segments) the material is.
