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.

The full crew of the Oregon's main characters get some serious page time, and it's nice to see them fleshed out, always in a way that advances the story or makes you care more about them.
The story itself is pacy and enjoyable with some unexpected turns, and two standout twist moments.
In a market where some authors seem to be diminishing in skill the later they get into their careers, its nice to see Cussler's collaborations are still resulting in hugely entertaining tales. Here's hoping they stay this good. You can count on this one for pure escapism fun.
Set in North Africa, the crew battle Libyan extremists bent on destroying an upcoming peace conference.
The narrative requires the reader to believe in an abandoned Libyan coal mine used by the British in the 1840's.
The requirement to believe Qaddafi as an espouser of peace, rather than the murderous psychopath he confirmed himself as before his timely demise,is perhaps one literary step too far.
Nonethertheless the novel is an excellent way to relieve ennui for several hours. Recommended.
Was drawn into the story as if you were part of the crew of the Oregon.
Looking forward to picking up the next one.
