I just finished reading my second "Dirk
Pitt" adventure by Clive
is being considered for a major motion picture...
can you say franchise?
Excerpts from Simon and Schuster:
1996.. a disease is driving thousands of North Africans
into madness, cannibalism, and death. The suspected
cause of the raging epidemic is vast, unprecedented
pollution that threatens to extinguish all life...
Racing to save the world from environmental catastrophe,
Pitt and his team... run a gauntlet between
a billionaire industrialist and a bloodthirsty West
African tyrant. In the scorching desert, Pitt
finds a gold mine manned by slaves and uncovers
the truth behind two enduring mysteries -- the fate
of a Civil War ironclad and its secret connection
with Lincoln's assassination, and the last
flight of a long-lost female pilot....Now, amidst
the blazing, shifting sands of the Sahara, DIRK
PITT will make a desperate stand -- in a battle
the world cannot afford to lose!
