Dirk Pitt® is the world's greatest adventure hero -- a man of action who lives by his wits and daring. As Special Projects Director for the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), he is cool and courageous, with a love of fast cars and extreme danger.
After an unknown force kills thousands of marine animals plus nearly two hundred people aboard a cruise ship, Dirk Pitt traces the destruction back to a merciless Australian millionaire. From a chilling escape at a high-security diamond mine to a tiny boat adrift on lonely, shark-infested seas, the ingenious Dirk Pitt races to stop a madman's ruthless plans -- before an unthinkable disaster claims millions of innocent lives!
About the Author
Clive Cussler's life nearly parallels that of his hero, Dirk Pitt®. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he has had amazing success. With his NUMA crew of volunteers, Cussler has discovered more than sixty lost ships of historic importance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features eighty examples of custom coachwork and is one of the finest to be found anywhere. Cussler divides his time between the deserts of Arizona and the mountains of Colorado.
