A CLIVE CUSSLER CLASSIC
On behalf of a grateful nation I wish to thank you for this astonishing gift…'
The President of the United States had reason to be grateful. Dirk Pitt had unearthed the greatest storehouse of knowledge in the ancient world: the Alexandria Library.
The trail began in a lonely fjord in Greenland. It ended on the banks of the Rio Grande. In between Pitt had frustrated an assassination, rescued a hijacked liner, survived a deadly gun battle and halted an invasion.
A gripping, action-packed story by a master of the craft.

THE HIGH-EXPLOSIVE SECRET OF THE AGES
Fanatics destroy the great storehouse of knowledge and treasure in the ancient world – the great library and museum of Alexandria. But a few conspirators secretly move the most precious items and ship them to a distant, desolate land, hiding them deep in a specially excavated stronghold…
A UN plane, with the Secretary-General aboard, crashes in the icy wastes of Greenland, brought down by a monstrously cunning terrorist conspiracy. Trouble-shooter supreme Dirk Pitt, in the area on an undercover search mission for a crippled Soviet submarine, finds himself caught up in an even more dangerous vortex of complex intrigue. And with a beautiful, sensual female archaeologist who has found an ancient gold coin nearby – far further north than it should be…
Dirk Pitt's quest for the Alexandrian treasure combines with his battle against the forces of murderous international terrorism in an outstanding story of razor's-edge suspense, hair-trigger international intrigue and all-out action and excitement. Like all Clive Cussler's previous novels,'TREASURE' is a superbly inventive tale of nonstop high adventure that will grip the reader from first page to last.
