Marine explorer Dirk Pitt faces off against an elite army from an era gone-by in order to uncover the secrets of an ancient civilization in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
A group of anthropologists uncover strange inscriptions on the wall of a Colorado mine just as an explosion traps them deep within the earth. But their work won’t stay buried long. Dirk Pitt is on hand during the blast and quick to initiate a rescue operation. He is then tapped to lead a research crew on behalf of the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency to further study these uncanny artifacts. And that’s when his ship is set upon and nearly sunk by an impossibility—a vessel that should have died 56 years before. 
Clearly, another group knows about the relics of this long-forgotten but highly-advanced seafaring culture. And they’ll stop at nothing to keep the rest of the world in the dark.

    This was one of the best Clive Cussler books I have read. And, I have read many. Full of suspense, action, and an intriguing story line. It was hard to put it down. Great read!
  • Pretty good, for my first Dirk Pitt book!

    By Danielntlions
    When he's not being pedantic, sycophantic, or arrogant enough to, literally, write himself into his own fiction, Cussler's prose is engaging, and enchanting! I suspect I'll soon search for more tales of Pitt's adventures.
  • Piece of crap

    By The 🐮 goes moo
    Seriously, what is the deal with this book? It's scientifically inaccurate in many places and it took about twenty pages to describe a man jumping from a plane. The author isn't very skilled either, I wouldn't get this book if it was free. Don't waste your money.
  • Another great Dirk Pitt story!

    By Best weather app.... ever.
    I like how he keeps me on the edge of the bed reading.
  • Another hit!

    Cushier has a great imagination but is a terrible writer. Insipid dialogue loaded with cliches. His first few books were pretty good especially raise the titanic. But lately he's become almost unreadable.
  • Just ok

    By I don't use nicknames
    It's alright and can keep you reading if just out of curiosity. The research is a little thin and the dialogue seemed immature. Still, irritating as the writing style is, the story is fun enough to keep one reading. Then flaws can be overlooked taken by themselves, but together, and along with the author's asinine insistence on including himself as a character in his stories, this will be last of his books that I will read.
