Clive Cussler, author of over twenty consecutive New York Times bestsellers, brings back beloved hero Dirk Pitt in this electrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller that is "a high-tech adventure, a little romance, and a whale of a story" (Richmond Times-Dispatch).
Japan, 1945: Two US bombers take off with atomic bombs. Only one gets through.
The Pacific, 1993: A Japanese cargo ship bound for the United States is instantly, thunderously vaporized, taking with it a Norwegian vessel. Japanese fanatics have developed a chilling plan to devastate and destroy the Western powers. From the ocean depths to the discovery of cache of lost Nazi loot, Dirk Pitt is untangling a savage conspiracy and igniting a daring counterattack. While Washington bureaucrats scramble, a brutal industrialist commands his blackmail scheme from a secret island control center. And Dirk, the dauntless hero of Sahara and Inca Gold, is taking on death-dealing robots and a human-hunting descendant of samurai warriors. Pitt alone controls the West's secret ace in the hole: a tidal wave of destruction waiting to be triggered on the ocean floor!
"Bulging with gadgetry and undersea delights" ( Houston Chronicle), Dragon is "pure fun...Watch out for paper cuts as you turn the pages faster and faster to keep up with Cussler's intense pace" ( San Diego Union-Tribune). This is "a page-turning romp that achieves a level of fast-paced action and derring-do that Robert Ludlum...might well envy" ( Publishers Weekly).
