In Poseidon's Arrow, Clive Cussler's great hero, Dirk Pitt, returns to fight a terrifying enemy. 1942, the Cape of Good Hope. Returning from a secret mission a submarine is attacked and fatally damaged. Its precious cargo is believed to be lost along with the vessel...Three quarters of a century later, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt saves a crowded cruise ship from being rammed by a runaway freighter. On board the rogue ship he finds the strangely burned remains of a single crewman. A continent away, the President is shown the prototype of the Poseidon's Arrow attack submarine, the top secret result of a programme so advanced it will secure US dominance at sea for decades to come. But the scientist responsible for its design has disappeared, along with the final plans to the technology. Pitt is assigned to investigate. But as the hunt leads him around the world, both his partner and Poseidon's Arrow revolutionary propulsion system also go missing. And soon the chilling connections between apparently disparate events begin to reveal themselves. Only Pitt can halt a shadowy conspiracy hellbent on using America's latest military technology to realize their terrifying ambitions.
With all the searing pace, wild imagination and heart-in-the-mouth thrills that are the Cussler hallmark, Poseidon's Arrow affirms once more that we are in the hands of the Grandmaster of Adventure. Poseidon's Arrow follows Arctic Drift and Crescent Dawn as the twenty-second Dirk Pitt Adventure. Praise for Clive Cussler: "Clive Cussler is hard to beat." (Daily Mail).

Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler is the author of over twenty-five internationally bestselling books, including the Dirk Pitt adventure series, the NUMA FILES novels and the Oregon Files Adventures.

He grew up in Alhambra, California. He later attended Pasadena City College for two years, but then enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War where he served as an aircraft mechanic and flight engineer in the Military Air Transport Service. Upon his discharge, he became a copywriter and later creative director for two leading ad agencies. At that time, he wrote and produced radio and television commercials that won numerous international awards, one at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Cussler began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. Because of this work the Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May of 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is the founder the National Underwater & Marine Agency, (NUMA), a non-profit organisation that dedicates itself to American maritime and naval history. In addition to being Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London.

A noted collector of classic automobiles, Cussler owns 85 of the finest examples of custom coachwork and 50's convertibles to be found anywhere. They are garaged near Golden, Colorado. Today, Cussler divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.
