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.

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.

Dirk Pitt is the 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 & evil. As the son of a U.S. Sen, grad. of the Air Force Acad. & special projects director for the U.S. National Underwater & Marine Agency, his courage & cool under fire are matched only by his forceful nature & ferocious determination to do whatever is necessary. Pitt reports directly to Admiral Sandecker, the cunning commander of NUMA, & is backed up by the tough, streetwise Al--a childhood friend & partner in undersea adventure for over 20 yrs.

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.

Another Dirk Pitt novel from Cussler. If you're a Dirk Pitt fan, this holds a surprise by the author near the end, so you must check it out. Very intriguing, at least for me who has always believed a bit in Atlantis.

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.
