New York: Pocket Books, 1991. Later printing. Mass market paperback. 542,  pages. Map. Illustrations. This is a Dirk Pitt adventure. Clive Eric Cussler (born July 15, 1931) is an American adventure novelist and underwater explorer. His thriller novels, many featuring the character Dirk Pitt, have reached The New York Times fiction best-seller list more than 20 times. Cussler is the founder and chairman of the real-life National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), which has discovered more than 60 shipwreck sites and numerous other notable underwater wrecks. He is the sole author or lead author of more than 70 books. Clive Cussler began writing in 1965. His most famous creation is marine engineer, government agent and adventurer Dirk Pitt. The first two Pitt novels, The Mediterranean Caper and Iceberg, were relatively conventional maritime thrillers. The third, Raise the Titanic!, made Cussler's reputation and established the pattern that subsequent Pitt novels would follow: a blend of high adventure and high technology, generally involving megalomaniacal villains, lost ships, beautiful women, and sunken treasure. Cussler's novels, like those of Michael Crichton, are examples of techno-thrillers that do not use military plots and settings.

Baldwin, an editor at the New York Times for almost forty years, was one of America's best-known military writers and analysts of World War II and the Vietnam War.

His news scoops upset many, but were in keeping with his determination to tell his readers what its government was doing. His continuing criticism of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's management of the Vietnam War and the Times management's annoyance with his pro-war position contributed to his decision to retire in March 1968. After retirement he continued to write articles on military affairs for the news columns and Op-Ed page of the New York Times.
