In the late 1960s, after serving in the Air Force during the Korean War and writing copy for a marketing firm, Clive Cussler decided to try his hand at writing fiction. His debut novel, The Mediterranean Caper, was published in 1973 and introduced leading man Dirk Pitt to the world. This started a writing career that lasted up to present day. While Cussler is no longer with us, he has left behind decades of stories to keep the adventure alive.
