Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nearly five centuries ago a fleet of boats landed mysteriously

on an island in an inland sea. There, an ancient Andean

people hid a golden hoard greater than that of any pharaoh,

then they and their treasure vanished into history — until now.

1998, the Andes Mountains of Peru. DIRK PITT dives into an

ancient sacrificial pool, saving two American archaeologists

from certain drowning. But his death-defying rescue is only

the beginning, as it draws the intrepid Pitt into a vortex of

darkness and danger, corruption and betrayal. A sinister crime

syndicate has traced the long-lost treasure — worth almost a

billion dollars — from the Andes to the banks of a hidden

underground river flowing beneath a Mexican desert. Driven

by burning greed and a ruthless bloodlust, the syndicate is

racing to seize the golden prize...and to terminate the one

man who can stop them.

Synopsis:

When a tsunami hit a Spanish treasure galleon, all trace of a golden hoard greater than that of any pharaoh's vanished into history. Until NUMA agent DIRK PITT® dives into an ancient sacrificial pool far into the Andean jungle in order to rescue two archaeologists, and plunges into a vortex of corruption, betrayal, and death. A sinister crime syndicate has traced the long-lost treasure — worth almost a billion dollars — from the Andes to the banks of a hidden underground river flowing beneath a Mexican desert. Nothing will stop their ruthless and murderous drive to recover the gold. Nothing, that is, until Pitt and his team place themselves square in the path of danger....

About the Author

Clive Cussler is acclaimed worldwide as the Grandmaster of Adventure. He got his start in advertising, first as an award-winning copy writer, and then as creative director for two of the nation's largest agencies. His initial foray into fiction was in 1973, when he wrote his first Dirk Pitt® novel.

Since then he has continued to write Dirk Pitt® adventures while living a life that nearly parallels that of his action hero. Like Pitt, Cussler enjoys discovering and collecting things of historical significance. With NUMA (National Underwater & Marine Agency, a non profit group begun by Cussler) he has had an amazing record of finding over 60 shipwrecks, one of which was the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley. Cussler also has a renowned and extensive classic car collection, which features over 80 examples of custom coachwork.

Along with being Chairman of NUMA, he is also a fellow of the Explorers Club (which honored him with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration), the Royal Geographical Society and the American Society of Oceanographers. Married to Barbara Knight for 40 years, with three children and two grandchildren, he divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.
