Dirk Pitt must fight another perilous battle in Clive Cussler's Atlantis Found. An ancient cargo long thought lost is found. With terrible consequences...Dirk Pitt is surveying in the Middle East when a stroke of luck reveals an Ottoman wreck with a very curious cargo. 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. Meanwhile, the region is being pushed to the brink of war by a series of explosions across Turkey and Egypt. Finding that his search for the artefacts is linked to the attacks, Pitt must prevent a deranged brother and sister's fanatical plans succeeding...Packed with breathtaking suspense and fired by an extraordinary imagination, Crescent Dawn is a barnstorming read for all fans of action, suspense and intrigue. Crescent Dawn is the twenty-first of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt novels - the series that also includes Inca Gold and, his first novel, Mayday - co-authored with his son Dirk Cussler, in which hero Dirk Pitt finds himself caught between artefacts and fanatics.

There is always some great history lesson and things you never knew about the past, but the characters are a bit stale and they are always being one upped by the bad guys/gals, as well as our hero's lose to many love interests to tragically before they even build a relationship. Story lines are becoming a bit transparent and lazy.
