Overview

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).
