Clive Cussler grew up in Alhambra, California, and attended Pasadena City College before joining the Air Force. He went on to a successful advertising career, winning many national honours for his copywriting. Now a full-time bestselling author, he has also explored the deserts of the American Southwest in search of lost gold mines, dived in isolated lakes in the Rocky Mountains looking for lost aircraft and hunted under the sea for shipwrecks of historic significance.
With this 14-week PW bestseller in cloth, Cussler delivers great fun, as his durable hero Dirk Pitt returns to save mankind from a greedy industrialist, solving some historical riddles along the way. (July)
