Clive Cussler is the author or coauthor of more than 50 previous books in five best-selling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Sam and Remi Fargo. His nonfiction works include Built for Adventure The Classic Automobiles of Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt, plus The Sea Hunters and The Sea Hunters II. They describe the true adventures of the real NUMA, which, led by Cussler, searches for lost ships of historic significance. With his crew of volunteers, Cussler has discovered more than 60 ships, including the long lost Confederate ship Hunley. He lives in Arizona. Graham Brown grew up in Illinois, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, moving often with his family. As far as he knows they weren't in the witness protection program or part of any top secret government agency, but then, would they really tell him? A former pilot and lawyer, and later part of a start up health care firm, Brown decided he hadn't had enough different careers yet and decided to become a writer. A huge fan of Clive Cussler, Michael Crichton, Stephen King, and television shows like The X-Files and Lost, Graham's first novel, Black Rain, debuted in January 2010. He now cowrites the NUMA Files series with Clive Cussler. Their second collaboration, The Storm, debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Praise for the NUMA Files Novels
"Cussler's latest is the most breathtakingly suspenseful, wildly inventive, enjoyable thriller in the NUMA Files series to date! Hard-core fans will snap it up."--Library Journal
"Cussler's action-packed, fun-filled 11th NUMA Files adventure provides a deserted volcanic-island lair, tricked-out ships, diving exploits, and plenty of thugs and minions to give Kurt Austin a few problems, to say nothing of a beautiful woman scientist."--Kirkus Reviews
"Electrifying...Cussler delivers all the usual twists and turns on the way to the explosive climax."--Publishers Weekly
"Ghost Ship is the closest yet to a flat-out James Bond adventure. The best Cussler stories are the ones that are the most personal to the hero, and for Kurt Austin, a failed rescue attempt still causes nightmares. Another solid entry in the NUMA Files series."--Associated Press
