About this title

Synopsis:

The adventure that started it all, introducing readers to Dirk Pitt, "oceanography’s answer to Indiana Jones" (Associated Press), and a #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

On a quiet Greek island, a U.S. air force base has come under attack—by a World War I fighter plane . . . a famous yellow Albatros supposedly lost at sea in 1918.

Now it is up to Dirk Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA team to root out the elusive truth behind the incident—and find out how it’s connected to mysterious acts of sabotage against a scientific expedition, an international smuggling ring, and a dark-haired beauty with some dangerous secrets.  The search for answers will lead Pitt from a lavish island villa, to a moving freighter eerily empty of crew, to a massive underwater cavern housing the heart of a criminal operation that is larger and more elaborate than he ever could have imagined . . . a lucrative operation that its mastermind would kill to protect.

With its fearless and dashing hero, high-stakes action, and non-stop excitement, The Mediterranean Caper is classic Dirk Pitt . . . and classic Cussler.

From the Publisher:

0n the remote Greek Island of Thasos, a German Albatros, a vintage World War I fighter plane, has swooped out of the blazing blue sky to attack a modern U.S. Air Force base, nearly destroying its fleet of F-105 Starfire jets. Thirty miles offshore, piloting a Catalina en route to the American scientific research vessel First Attempt, Dirk Pitt hears and responds to the Brady Field emergency call. He blows the Albatros back into the oblivion from which it came, ripping open a mammoth half-century-old conspiracy in the process.

Pitt has come to the Aegean to hunt down the mysterious saboteur preying on First Attempt -- the ship's mission is to search for a missing evolutionary link, a rare and possibly extinct fish -- but connecting the sabotage on board to the attack on Brady Field, Dirk Pitt knows he's fishing for a shark: a human shark that smells blood.

The adventure begins with Teri. She's a glamorous modern Greek goddess in a red bikini, devastatingly beautiful, devastatingly dangerous, and the key to a vast drug-smuggling ring about to bring off a lethal billion- dollar deal. As much as she's willing to reveal to Pitt, there's one secret she holds back: the truth about a missing Nazi war criminal now ruling over a corrupt empire. For decades he has managed to elude international authorities, remain one step ahead of the world's top investigators, and destroy all his enemies, except one: Dirk Pitt.

From a thrilling aerial dogfight to heart-stopping hand-to-hand combat, Dirk Pitt follows a trail of blood, treachery, and terror into the depths of a cavernous undersea labyrinth. There, in the legendary Pit of Hades, the action explodes in a climax of unparalleled excitement, as Pitt confronts the brilliance and brutali- ty of a sinister nemesis with a genius for Death.
