"Clive Cussler has no equal," writes Publishers Weekly, and he proved it again with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his number-one bestselling Atlantis Found. Fans wanted to know how he could possibly top it—and the answer is Valhalla Rising.
It is July 2003. In the middle of its maiden voyage, the luxury cruise ship Emerald Dolphin suddenly catches fire and sinks. What caused it? Why didn't the alarms go off? What was its connection to the revolutionary new engines powering the ship? NUMA special projects director Dirk Pitt races to rescue the passengers and investigate the disaster, but he has no idea of the bizarre events that are about to engulf him.
Before the next few weeks are over, Pitt will find himself confronted by an extraordinary series of monsters, both human and mechanical, modern and ancient. He will tread upon territory previously known only to legend. And, at the end of it all, though many lives will be lost, and many saved, it is Pitt's own life that will be changed forever. . . .
Filled with dazzling suspense and breathtaking action, Valhalla Rising is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.Biographie de l'auteur :
Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire. He lives in Arizona.

Marine explorer Dirk Pitt must rely on the nautical lore of Jules Verne to stop a ruthless oil baron with his sights set on political power in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series. In the middle of its maiden voyage, a luxury cruise ship using revolutionary new engines suddenly catches fire and sinks. Its alarms stay silent; its sprinkler system remains inactive. Nearby NUMA special projects director Dirk Pitt notices smoke and races to the rescue. He s too late to save the engineer behind the ship s new technology, but helps the man s daughter, Kelly Egan, escape with her father s work in a leather briefcase. While Ms. Egan strives to uncover the hidden value in her father s inventions, Pitt is hired on bymaritime insurers to investigate the wreckage. Neither are prepared for the mechanical marvels they ll soon be forced to confront. The machines could only be the stuff of legend, described in the tales of Viking explorers or the accounts of Jules Verne. And they may be Pitt and Egan s only hope when an oil tycoon with a plan of his own appears on the scene. Before journey s end, Pittwill take on a power-mad millionaire, tread upon territory previously known only to Verne s illustrious Captain Nemo, and make shocking discoveries about his own past.
