A Note from John: "We enjoyed a special relationship with Clive Cussler for over 25 years. So much has been said about this man, but he should be remembered first as a kind and gentle man who took time for anyone who approached him, and second as the creator of the modern adventure novel. His premeire character, Dirk Pitt, has become the standard for the action hero. So many authors have credited Clive with their inspiration for becoming a writer that they are to numerous to mention."
"We would like to remember Clive and thank his current co-authors for their support. Special thanks to Dirk Cussler, Paul Kemprecos, Graham Brown, Jack Du Brul, Boyd Morrison, Robin Burcell, Justin Scott, Thomas Perry and Russell Blake."

Cussler founded the National Underwater & Marine Agency, (NUMA) an organization that dedicates itself to American maritime and naval history. Cussler and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered over 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites. One such find is the C.S.S. Hunley, best known as the first submarine to sink a ship in battle during the Civil War.
