About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler is acclaimed worldwide as the Grandmaster of Adventure, a title richly deserved given that there are nearly 100 million copies of his best-selling Dirk Pitt novels in print. 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

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.



Synopsis of this title

In this Dirk Pitt novel, Pitt sets forth on a new adventure, long-lost cities in the Andes, fabulous hoards of Inca treasure and the international smuggling of stolen antiquities. The author also wrote "Sahara", "Raise the Titanic" and "Treasure".

Reviews of this title

quotes

From Booklist
Cussler's latest novel sends his intrepid superhero Dirk Pitt on another action-filled chase, this time through the jungles of the Amazon and up an underground river in Mexico. Pitt is joined, as usual, by his buddy, Al Giordino; his girlfriend, Congresswoman Loren Smith (who doesn't show up until the book is halfway over); and the usual gang of good-guy government officials. This time, the bad guys are an international ancient-artifact smuggling ring, all of whom are ruthless, greedy, and in pursuit of the "golden chain of Huascar," a huge treasure hidden by Incas, the clues for which were once in the hands of a close associate of Sir Francis Drake. Cussler loads the book with action (an earthquake and a tsunami, a rescue dive into an Andean sinkhole, lots of gunplay and hand-to-hand combat, and a final breathtaking, whitewater rafting trip on an underground river) as well as anthropological stuff about the Incas and their treasures. (Cussler is one of those writers who gleans tons of information and then feels obligated to include all of it.) Cussler fans are already familiar with his gift for hyperbole, and readers discovering the author for the first time should take his breathless approach with a grain of salt and just relax and enjoy the adventures of Pitt and company.

‘Clive Cussler's hero Dirk Pitt is made of strong stuff, handling the improbable with nerves of steel…he is one of the best adventure heroes around’
Today

‘Nobody does it better than Clive Cussler, America's finest adventure writer’
STEPHEN COONTS

‘Clive Cussler is the guy 'I' read’
TOM CLANCY
