In the final days of World War II, the Japanese launch a desperate last-ditch effort to seize victory in the face of certain defeat by sending two submarines carrying a new strain of a deadly virus to the west coast of the United States, but years after the subs are lost at sea, someone plots to use their deadly cargo, and only Dirk Pitt and his children, Summer and Dirk, stand in the way. 1,000,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
In the waning days of World War II, unbeknownst to all but a handful of people, the Japanese tried a last, desperate measure. Two submarines were sent to the West Coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of biological virus, their mission to unleash hell.
Neither sub made it to the designated target. But that does not mean they were lost.
Someone knows about the subs and what they carried, knows too where they might be, and has an extraordinary plan in mind for the prize inside - a plan that could reshape America, and the world, as we know it. All that stands in the way are three people: a marine biologist named Summer, a marine engineer named Dirk ... and their father, Dirk Pitt, the new head of NUMA.
Pitt has faced devastating enemies before, has even teamed up with his children to track them down. But never has he encountered such pure evil - until now.

Help. The title of this book is Black Wind but when I downloaded it the book changed to America the Vulnerable. Where is the Black Wind ebook?

The Black Wind --- by Clive Cussler. Lost deadly WWII Japanese munitions. A wealthy-beyond-imagining Korean madman. Weaponized smallpox. A guided missile aimed squarely at the United States. An assortment of submersibles. A dirigible immensely larger than the Goodyear blimp.These are the ingredients. Shake energetically and you get, voila, another Dirk Pitt novel by Clive Cussler. The usual adjectives are apt: breathy taking; thrilling; fast paced; a novel you can’t put down. My score: at least 9 out of 10.
