Clive Cussler spends his time discovering sea wrecks when he isnt writing Dirk Pitt adventures. But these days, Cussler should have lots more time for the ocean, because his son Dirk Cussler has joined in on the writing. The 20th Dirk Pitt adventure novel, Artic Drift, written by Clive and Dirk Cussler, features a discovery that could reverse global warming along with a series of sudden deaths. Pitt and his kids, Dirk Jr. and Summer, know theres a connection between the two, but they dont have much time to find the answers before Pitts life is on the line again.
