Clive Cussler is an American adventure novelist who is best known for his Dirk Pitt novels. Cussler has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List numerous times (and counting). He is also a marine archaeologist, which comes in handy because his novels often deal with shipwrecks.

Aside from the Dirk Pitt series, Cussler’s other series include The NUMA Files, The Oregon Files, Isaac Bell and Fargo Adventures. Cussler has also authored four non-fiction books (two involving Dirk Pitt and two on famous shipwrecks) and two children’s books. Cussler often writes alongside a co-author for most of his series other than the Dirk Pitt series. Even his most recent Dirk Pitt novels are co-authored by his son (and namesake of Pitt’s) Dirk Cussler. Below is the order in which Clive Cussler’s novels were published:
