"I've always had tremendous fun with Dirk Pitt,
but nothing has given me more pleasure than the opportunity to send him
to that most fabled of lost lands, Atlantis, and to virtually reinvent
aspects of its civilization. I hope you have as good a time reading Atlantis Found as I did writing it!" - Clive Cussler
Dirk Pitt discovers Atlantis in a breathtaking novel from the grand master of adventure fiction. Clive Cussler has long since proven himself one of America's most
popular authors--a master of intricate, audacious plotting and
"vibrant, rollicking narrative" (Chicago Tribune). But Atlantis Found
may be his most audacious novel of all.
September l858: An Antarctic whaler stumbles upon an aged
wreck, its grisly frozen crew guarding crates of odd antiquities--and a
skull carved from black obsidian.
March 200l: A team of anthropologists gazes in awe at a wall of

April 200l: A research ship manned by Dirk Pitt and members of
the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency is set upon and nearly

Pitt knows that somehow all these incidents are connected, and
his investigations soon land him deep into 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.
The trap is set. The clock is ticking. And only one man stands between earth and Armageddon. . . .
Filled with dazzling suspense and astonishing set pieces, this is Clive Cussler's greatest adventure novel yet.
