In 1943 a submarine returning from a secret mission is attacked, its vital cargo believed lost. Three quarters of a century later, NUMA director Dirk Pitt is asked to help locate a missing person: the scientist responsible for the design of the revolutionary Poseidon's Arrow submarine. This craft is so advanced and dangerous that any government would kill to posses it - and not only has its designer disappeared, but so too have the plans.
Dirk Pitt must fight another perilous battle in Clive Cussler's Atlantis Found. An ancient cargo long thought lost is found. With terrible consequences . . .

While investigating the find, he foils a night raid on Istanbul's Topkapi Palace Museum. This puts Pitt at the centre of a race to acquire a series of legendary artefacts.
Sea Of Greed
In the Gulf of Mexico, flames erupt from the seabed turning oilrigs into infernos. Luckily, Kurt Austin and the NUMA team are on hand to rescue the crews before the burning rigs sink beneath the waves. But what caused this fireball?

While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous - a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba.
The Rising Sea
The world's sea levels are rising at an alarming rate. So fast that nobody can explain it. It's up to Kurt and the NUMA team to find out why, before it's too late. Their search for answers sends them racing around the world, from the high-tech streets of Tokyo, to a forbidden secret island. But it's in the East China Sea that they discover a secret underwater mining operation, and a plot more dangerous than they could have ever imagined . . .
When the most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific, NUMA operatives Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are drawn into a deadly contest to locate the fallen machine. As long as it remains frozen, the cargo is inert, but if it thaws, it will unleash a catastrophe of nearly unthinkable proportions.
