Giugno 1035. Una flottiglia di navi vichinghe individua un approdo favorevole lungo la costa orientale del Nordamerica e vi insedia una colonia, intrattenendo rapporti pacifici coi nativi. Tuttavia, dopo che un manipolo di guerrieri è partito per esplorare le vaste terre a occidente, accade qualcosa di terribile e, al ritorno, gli esploratori trovano ad attenderli un incomprensibile massacro. Resta loro un’unica certezza: il tesoro vichingo non è stato toccato... Febbraio 1894. La nave da guerra Kearsarge, in navigazione da Haiti al Nicaragua, viene speronata da un «mostro d’acciaio» subacqueo che neppure i colpi di cannone riescono a scalfire. Tuttavia, prima che la nave affondi, il comandante Leigh Hunt riesce a vedere, dietro un oblò del misterioso sottomarino, un volto che lo osserva... Luglio 2003. Il viaggio inaugurale nel mar dei Caraibi della lussuosa nave da crociera Emerald Dolphin si muta in tragedia quando a bordo divampa un incendio che, in pochissimo tempo, divora ogni cosa. Per gli oltre duemila passeggeri sembra non esserci scampo, ma Dirk Pitt, al comando della nave oceanografica Deep Encounter della NUMA, lancia una colossale operazione di salvataggio. Perché i sofisticati sistemi di allarme e antincendio della nave non hanno funziona to? Il sospetto di un sabotaggio si rafforza dopo che una violenta esplosione fa affondare il relitto dell’EmeraId Dolphin. Forse qualcuno aveva interesse nel distruggere una nave i cui rivoluzionari motori – che sfruttavano l’acqua di mare come mezzo di propulsione – avrebbero aperto una nuova era nella tecnologia dei trasporti marittimi... Non sarà facile per Pitt svelare i misteri che si celano dietro questi avvenimenti così lontani nel tempo e nello spazio. Per riuscirci, dovrà fare i conti con un’incredibile serie di mostri, umani e meccanici, antichi e moderni, confrontarsi con nemici che non hanno posto limiti alle loro brame di possesso, avventurarsi nei territori al confine tra realtà e leggenda. E alla fine, dopo molte vite perse e molte salvate, sarà proprio quella di Pitt a uscirne cambiata per sempre...

Marine explorer Dirk Pitt must rely on the nautical lore of Jules Verne to stop a ruthless oil baron with his sights set on political power in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series. In the middle of its maiden voyage, a luxury cruise ship using revolutionary new engines suddenly catches fire and sinks. Its alarms stay silent; its sprinkler system remains inactive. Nearby NUMA special projects director Dirk Pitt notices smoke and races to the rescue. He's too late to save the engineer behind the ship's new technology, but helps the man's daughter, Kelly Egan, escape with her father's work in a leather briefcase. While Ms. Egan strives to uncover the hidden value in her father's inventions, Pitt is hired on by maritime insurers to investigate the wreckage. Neither are prepared for the mechanical marvels they'll soon be forced to confront. The machines could only be the stuff of legend, described in the tales of Viking explorers or the accounts of Jules Verne. And they may be Pitt and Egan's only hope when an oil tycoon with a plan of his own appears on the scene. Before journey's end, Pitt will take on a power-mad millionaire, tread upon territory previously known only to Verne's illustrious Captain Nemo, and make shocking discoveries about his own past.

When the incomplete invention of a genius environmentalist falls into the wrong hands, it’s the NUMA crew that will be the first casualties of war, and team leader Kurt Austin will stop at nothing to get justice for his fellow agents in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series. In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset, when a crew member spots the familiar sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames. A few hours later, Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and other members of the NUMA Special Assignments Team are dispatched to check on their colleagues. They find no survivors, but the remains of a new technological marvel on the smoldering hulk of the ship point them towards a new adversary. Knowing the victims makes this mission deeply personal for Austin and Zavala. They’ll uncover the scheme: an audacial plan to alter the weather on a global scale. They’ll find the technology that can make it happen: microrobots, originally designed to stave off polution. But what they may not learn in time is the face of their true enemy. And, on assignment this close to the hearts and minds of the NUMA crew, the danger is likely to hit close to home. Filled with the high-stakes suspense and boundless imagination that are unique to Cussler, The Storm is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

Second in a two-book saga. Bronwyn McGregor has known the depths of heartache. Having lost the man she'd loved since childhood and the child their great love created, she has thrown herself into her work as a psychologist, determined to help those who cannot help themselves. The last thing on her mind is finding romance among the criminally insane at Baybridge Sanitarium. From a seething cauldron of evil, Viraidan Cree was created in the frigid winds of space. Dredged up from a bog in the wilds of Ireland where he has spent centuries of unlife, he is a Reaper, a warrior among warriors, a being so lethal, so dangerous he cannot be controlled. Yet lurking within the reborn warrior is the spirit of a dead man whose love has survived against all odds. Given the job to secure the safety of those who work at Baybridge, Cree takes one look at Bronwyn and vows to make her his own. But the NightWind Danyon Hart is listening to the Reaper's deep desires. He too has his sights set on Bronwyn and will allow no one to get in his way...especially not a Reaper! Note: We recommend reading BlackWind: Sean and Bronwyn before reading BlackWind: Viraiden and Bronwyn. This story is not for the faint of heart.

Per Dirk Pitt, semplicemente, una vita senza avventura non è degna di essere vissuta. Questa volta l’avventura si chiama Qin Shang, un abietto cinese privo di scrupoli e avido di ricchezze che ha fondato il proprio impero sul contrabbando di droga, di armi e soprattutto di vite umane, la sua merce di scambio preferita, al centro di loschi traffici d’immigrazione illegale. E adesso Qin Shang è disposto a qualsiasi cosa pur d’impadronirsi del relitto di una misteriosa nave carica di capolavori dell’antica arte cinese razziati da Chiang Kaishek durante la sua fuga dalla Cina e comprendente i resti preziosissimi del cosiddetto Uomo di Pechino. La formidabile squadra della NUMA, comandata da Dirk Pitt, non ha però alcuna intenzione di stare a guardare. Seguendo le tracce delle criminose attività della sua preda, Pitt scopre che Qin Shang ha costruito un’enorme installazione portuale in una zona lontana dalle comuni rotte commerciali. Perché ha scelto un luogo così improbabile? Che cosa si nasconde dietro quell’impresa? Mentre si prepara la drammatica resa dei conti finale, una sola cosa è sicura: Pitt ha di fronte il più pericoloso nemico che abbia mai incontrato... Ed è altrettanto certo che Clive Cussler, da narratore di razza qual è, ha fatto centro ancora una volta. Coinvolgente, trascinante, pieno di intrighi, ricco di suspense: Alta marea non è soltanto un concentrato di emozioni e colpi di scena, ma molto di più.

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.
