The authors provide the usual deserted volcanic-island lair, tricked-out ships, diving exploits, and plenty of thugs and minions to give Kurt a few problems, to say nothing of a beautiful woman scientist along for the love-interest role. Readers new to Cussler should be prepared for zero believability.

Synopsis

The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from the grand master of adventure…

It is called zero-point energy, and it really exists—a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it…until one scientist succeeds. Unfortunately, his intentions are far from noble.

The scientist is determined to avenge himself upon those who have scorned and vilified him, and constructs machines that will use the zero-point energy to unleash an apocalypse of earthquakes and cracks in the Earth’s tectonic plates.

With disaster drawing closer, Kurt Austin and the NUMA team race to find the machines before they’re activated. For if they fail, the world will literally be torn apart…

...there's a hovercraft-snowmobile set piece battle and a shootout in the volcanic island’s bowels, which, in addition to the Tesla-inspired doomsday generator, holds a diamond mine to finance the experiment. A C-minus effort.

"Zero Hour" may not be the best NUMA Files novel in the series, but it's the most exciting.
