December, 1941. Four brothers investigate the secrets of a treasure pit on a small island in the Pacific. But a sudden death and the coming war allow its secrets to lie forgotten . . .
Present day. Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon team have been sent to locate the remains of a crashed NASA satellite in the Argentine jungle. Coming under attack, they make a mysterious discovery which sends them to a small Pacific island. There, they will discover the deadly secrets of an ancient Chinese expedition - by the lost ship The Silent Sea. Now Cabrillo and his team are in a race against time to find the remains of The Silent Sea. Because there will be terrible consequences if someone else finds it first . . .
The Silent Sea is a gripping, white- knuckle ride of a novel, and is Clive Cussler at his brilliant best.

At that time, he wrote and produced radio and television commercials that won numerous international awards, one at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
Cussler began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. Because of this work the Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May of 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Jack Du Brul is a graduate of the Westminster School and George Washington University. Trying to add as much adventure to his life as he does to his novels, Du Brul has climbed Masada at noon, swam in the Arctic Ocean off Point Barrow, explored war-torn Eritrea, camped in Greenland, and was gnawed on by piranhas in the Amazon River. He collects zeppelin memorabilia and when not writing or traveling (25 countries and counting), he can be found in a favorite chair with a book and a brandy. Jack Du Brul lives in Burlington, Vermont.
