When mysterious black obsidian skulls and other artifacts of an exceedingly ancient culture begin to turn up in odd places, Pitt jumps in with both feet. It soon becomes dangerously apparent that a powerful, amoral group of fanatics calling itself the Fourth Empire wants the strange discoveries to remain underground. Pitt teams up with a beautiful red-haired expert in ancient languages to decipher the meaning of the artifacts. They were made 10 millennia ago in a then-temperate Antarctica by a seafaring civilization advanced enough to predict its own destruction by a comet impact. Now the Fourth Empire (whose literal and figurative progenitor comes as no surprise) is predicting a similar disaster in only a matter of months, and preparing to take control of the earth.

A nifty little Dirk Pitt thriller. As with most of Cussler's stories, the science and archeology can be a little iffy, but that plot and action are good old school adventure.

any fan of Clive Cussler will know that this is another good book. The idea of the lost city of Atlantis being found is a premise that other authors have tried to do but not with Cusslers expertize about the oceans.

This is a BIG book and the story is very interesting. The author has a wonderful imagination and seems to be able to create his books with enough historical fact that the fiction parts almost seem real too. I have read and enjoyed other books of Clive Cussler. They seem to be Historical Facts with a hero of the James Bond type. I recommend this book to keep you on the edge of your seat.

April 2001: A research ship manned by Dirk Pitt and members of the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency is set upon and nearly sunk by an impossibility - a vessel that should have died fifty-six years before. Pitt knows that somehow all these incidents are connected and his investigations soon land him deep in an ancient mystery with very modern consequences, up against a diabolical enemy unlike any he has ever known, and racing to save not only his own life - but the future of the world itself.

A Dirk Pitt novel, great near-future adventure thriller!
The main character, Dirk Pitt is that rarest of individuals without whom the world could not survive. He is a man of swift, decisive action who lives by his honor, forever standing watch on the front lines in the enduring war between good and evil. As the son of a U.S. senator, graduate of the Air Force Academy, and special projects director for the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), his courage and cool under fire are matched only by his ferocious determination to do whatever is necessary. Pitt reports to Admiral James Sandecker, the cunning commander of NUMA, and is backed up by the tough, streetwise Al Giordino, a childhood friend and partner in undersea adventure for many years.

As the story begins, artifacts from a previously undiscovered civilization, ancient but highly advanced, are popping up all over the globe. Pitt himself is on site in a Colorado mine when archeologists come across strange carvings and mysterious inscriptions. But then an explosion traps the party below ground, and a band of black-suited terrorists arrive at the scene with guns blazing. Though Pitt saves the day, the incident points toward a wider network of evil schemes. Working for the National Underwater & Marine Agency, Pitt finally identifies the terrorists as members of the Fourth Empire, an organization headed by the diabolical Wolf family, a secret clan of genetically engineered people who worship the Nazi Third Reich. But it's only after Pitt and his able sidekick, Al Giordino, battle old German U-boats, dodge surface-to-air missiles and narrowly escape death on a remote island off Australia that they find out what the Fourth Empire is up to. The neo-Nazis aim to prevent the world from discovering the artifacts of this previously unknown seafaring culture because they tell of a catastrophic event that wiped out civilization 9000 years ago and reveal when the next cataclysm will hit. The Wolfs plan to accelerate the date through their own scheme to destroy Earth, meanwhile sheltering themselves and their thousands of followers on enormous, disaster-proof ships. Pitt knows his assignment: save the world--a tall order, but one he's filled many times before. Cussler's 15th Pitt adventure (after Flood Tide) is a rampaging story of history, technology and heroism, written with Cussler's typical make-no-apologies enthusiasm.
