Atlantis Found : Dirk Pitt #15 Paperback
Part of the The Dirk Pitt Adventures series
Clive Cussler sends his great hero on an explosive mission in Atlantis Found, the fifteenth Dirk Pitt adventure.
Around the world ancient artefacts are suddenly appearing, hinting at a catastrophe that will soon visit Earth ...Dirk Pitt is on hand at a Colorado archaeological site where an ancient and mysterious artefact has been found - one that is perhaps linked to other strange objects turning up across the globe. And soon Pitt's skills and ingenuity are desperately needed to rescue the team after a suspicious explosion seals them deep underground.
It quickly becomes clear that the artefacts carry a message: warning of global Armageddon.
Yet a shadowy organisation called the Fourth Empire not only wants to stop others from heeding that warning, but is also actively seeking to accelerate the end it foretells.
Now Pitt and NUMA must face this diabolical foe, who will stop at nothing to wipe out all life on earth ...Packed with blistering action and hair-raising suspense, Atlantis Found is Clive Cussler at his brilliant best.
Atlantis Found is the fifteenth of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt thrillers - the series that also includes Arctic Drift and, his first novel, Mayday - in which the discovery of an artefact could mean the end of the world.

Review by queenoftheshelf
Dirk Pitt, the good-looking, humorous action hero is back in this divergent, if scientifically improbable adventure. Pitt just happens to be in the same town in Colorado where a mine with ancient ruins of a long-lost empire are found, but he's not the only one who knows about the ruins. The story takes us from Colorado,off the tip of South Africa, to the icy plains of Antarctica, while Pitt fights to stave off an earth-wide disaster.Sure, the story is a bit on the far-fetched side, and the situations are always somewhat ridiculous, but Cussler excels at a good action adventure story and Atlantis Found is just that. The action is well-timed and the story will keep you wanting more. A perfect book to curl up with while on vacation.
