VJ Books Announces the Return of Dirk Pitt in Clive Cussler’s “Crescent Dawn”

Crescent Dawn by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler

Crescent Dawn Clive Cussler Dirk CusslerFilled with the dazzling suspense and breathtaking action that are Clive Cussler‘s trademarks, Crescent Dawn is a stunning new Dirk Pitt novel from the grand master of adventure. Crescent Dawn is the fourth collaboration between Cussler and his son Dirk, following Black Wind, Treasure of Khan, and Arctic Drift.

In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman artifacts discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the Ottoman Empire, and to the existence of a mysterious “manifest,” lost long ago, which if discovered again just may change the history of the world as we know it.

Cussler’s novels, using fantastic spectacles and outlandish plot devices, reflect the anything-goes quality of James Bond or Indiana Jones. Pitt himself is a larger-than-life hero who is supported by a long list of supporting characters including his side-kick (since elementary school) Al Giordino, and the cigar smoking NUMA boss, turned Vice Present, Admiral James Sandecker.

“Fans have been patiently waiting for the new Dirk Pitt novel”, says John Hutchinson at VJ Books, “. . . and they will not be disappointed. Crescent Dawn is a true tour de force.”
