An Antarctic whaler stumbles across an aged wreck—her frozen crew guarding a priceless treasure.

A team of anthropologists is buried under a mountain by a deliberate explosion.

A ship that should have died fifty-six years ago reappears, and almost sinks a National Underwater and Marine Agency ship.

Dirk Pitt knows that somehow these events are connected. His investigations lead to an ancient mystery with devastating modern consequences, and a diabolical enemy unlike any he has ever known. Now, he is racing to save not only his life—but the world. The trap is set. The clock is ticking. And only one man stands between the earth and Armageddon…

is that rarest of individuals without whom the world could not survive. He is a man of swift, decisive action who lives by his honor—forever standing watch on the front lines in the enduring war between good and evil. As the son of a U.S. Senator, graduate of the Air Force Academy, and Special Projects Director for the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), his courage and cool under fire are matched only by his forceful nature and ferocious determination to do whatever is necessary. Pitt reports directly to Admiral James Sandecker, the cunning commander of NUMA, and is backed up by the tough, streetwise Al Giordino—a childhood friend and partner in undersea adventure for over twenty years.
