"In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure-a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the West Coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of biological virus. Neither sub made it to the designated target. But that does not mean they were lost. Someone knows about the subs and what they bore, knows too where they might be, and has an extraordinary plan in store for the prize inside-a scheme that could reshape 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, and has even teamed up with his children to track them down. But never has he looked upon the face of pure evil...until now."--Publisher website.

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.
