Review

-- Washington Post Book World

"...refreshing escapist entertainment."

Stephen Coonts

"Don't even peek at SAHARA until you're ready to read every word. America's finest adventure writer, Clive Cussler, has given us the ultimate Dirk Pitt tale, s taut zinger that I couldn't put down."

Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Clive Cussler is at his absolute, riotous, violent, macho best in SAHARA.... Dirk Pitt is a godsend ... The finale is no less than splendid."

Flint Journal

"Dirk Pitt is at it again... proving himself indestructible to the bad guys and irresistible to beautiful women -- and irresistible to readers as well!.... Terrifically fun...."

United Press International

"Clive Cussler gets more wild and mischievous with every new book.... SAHARA is a fast-moving string of adventures with some outrageous side plots.... A tour de force...."

Sunday Oklahoman

"It's Dirk Pitt at his adventurous best...."

Publishers Weekly

"Cussler champions ecological issues with verve, and continues his love affair with history.... Great fun... putting Beau Geste swashbucklers against the vilest of villains."

Newport News Daily Press

"Cussler gives us one of his most consistently enjoyable books in years.... Romance, violence, technology, and history all blend swimmingly into another adventure in which that old lethal smoothy Dirk Pitt can really raise some hell.... Cussler knows how to make action flow."

New York Daily News

"An ecological thriller with sideshows, and some most imaginative escapes and close calls.... There are some delicious villains.... It all comes together, but more than that, it leaves Cussler with a real problem, and that is how to top himself."

Raleigh News & Observer

"SAHARA is a great way to spend an afternoon. Or two. Or three.... A good-time book, a swashbuckling adventure.... You can't help but enjoy it."

From the Publisher

1996, Egypt. Searching for a treasure on the Nile, DIRK PITT thwarts the attempted assassination of a beautiful U.N. scientist investigating a disease that is driving thousands of North Africans into madness, cannibalism, and death. The suspected cause of the raging epidemic is vast, unprecedented pollution that threatens to extinguish all life in the world's seas. Racing to save the world from environmental catastrophe, Pitt and his team, equipped with an extraordinary, state-of-the-art yacht, run a gauntlet between a billionaire industrialist and a bloodthirsty West African tyrant. In the scorching desert, Pitt finds a gold mine manned by slaves and uncovers the truth behind two enduring mysteries -- the fate of a Civil War ironclad and its secret connection with Lincoln's assassination, and the last flight of a long-lost female pilot....Now, amidst the blazing, shifting sands of the Sahara, DIRK PITT will make a desperate stand -- in a battle the world cannot afford to lose!END

Clive Cussler began writing novels in 1965 and published his first work featuring his continuous series hero, Dirk Pitt(R), in 1973. His first non-fiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. 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, 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, (NUMA) a 501C3 non-profit organization (named after the fictional Federal agency in his novels) that dedicates itself to preserving American maritime and naval history. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered more than 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites including the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, the Confederacy's Hunley, and its victim, the Union's Housatonic; the U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; the Cumberland, which was sunk by the famous ironclad, Merrimack; the renowned Confederate raider Florida; the Navy airship, Akron, the Republic of Texas Navy warship, Zavala, found under a parking lot in Galveston, and the Carpathia, which sank almost six years to-the-day after plucking Titanic's survivors from the sea.

In September, 1998, NUMA - which turns over all artifacts to state and Federal authorities, or donates them to museums and universities - launched its own web site for those wishing more information about maritime history or wishing to make donations to the organization.

In addition to being the Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is also a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London. He has been honored with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.

Cussler's books have been published in more than 40 languages in more than 100 countries. His past international bestsellers include Pacific Vortex, Mediterranean Caper, Iceberg, Raise the Titanic, Vixen 03, Night Probe, Deep Six, Cyclops, Treasure, Dragon, Sahara, Inca Gold, Shock Wave, Flood Tide, Atlantis Found, Valhalla Rising, Trojan Odyssey, Black Wind, Treasure of Kahn and Arctic Drift (the last three with his son, Dirk Cussler) as well as The Chase; the nonfiction books The Sea Hunters, The Sea Hunters II and Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt (R) Revealed; the NUMA(R) Files novels Serpent, Blue Gold, Fire Ice, White Death, Lost City, Polar Shift, The Navigator and Medusa (written with Paul Kemprecos); and the Oregon Files novels Sacred Stone and Golden Buddha (written with Craig Dirgo) and Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship and Corsair (written with Jack Du Brul).

Clive Cussler lives in Arizona.
