Lost City is a nerve-shredding NUMA Files novel from Clive Cussler, international bestseller. Kurt Austin's toughest assignment yet... The discovery of a body frozen for ninety years in a glacier high in the French Alps seems of unlikely concern to Kurt Austin and the NUMA Special Projects team. But when those on site are trapped in alpine tunnels flooding with glacial meltwater, Austin can hardly ignore a cry for help. And this near tragedy proves to be no mere accident. For the body held a secret. A secret someone was prepared to kill for. Soon Austin is plunged into a mystery involving a virulent algal weed ravaging the Atlantic's Lost City trench, while he and the team face a family of astonishing greed - who will stop at nothing to get what they want ... Clive Cussler, author of the best-selling Dirk Pitt novels Arctic Drift and The Treasure of Khan, and co-author Paul Kemprecos unravel a tangled web of conspiracy and greed in Lost City, the fifth novel of the action-packed NUMA Files series. Praise for Clive Cussler: 'The Master is back...Cussler is in top form with this galloping tale of derring-do and world domination' Sunday Express

New Orleans is the Lost City of America. New Orleans has disappeared as surely as the lost city of Atlantis or the lost city of Pompeii, which former mayor Marc Morial and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA.) have compared us to in their statements. That New Orleans, the New Orleans I mean to tell you about, that will never, ever, exist again--that city of love, lust, death and sex--will never exist again. A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to the New Orleans Hospitality Workers Fund. The cooks, servers and restaurant workers of New Orleans have provided fabulous times and memories for millions. Now we must remember them in their time of need.

The epic conclusion to the exciting Jaguar Stonesseries and a rip-roaring adventure into the heart of North America! With his parents in jail and the Maya Death Lords in possession of all five Jaguar Stones, fourteen-year-old Max Murphy is pretty sure that he'll never get to leave the rainforest. But the Lords of Death have a problem—a new king calling himself Great Sun claims to have the Jaguar Stones, too. And they want Max to prove the guy's a fraud. Or else. Now, Max, and Lola, the mysterious girl who befriends him, are off on another wild adventure that will take them from Central America to New Orleans and up the Mississippi to the lost city at the heart of North America's past. But one thing Max should have learned after all of his dealings with the Death Lords—they never keep their promises.

Caldecott Honor-winner Ted Lewin takes readers on a thrilling journey to the wilds of Peru in this story of Hiram Bingham, who, in 1911, carved a treacherous path through snake-filled jungles and across perilous mountains in search of Vilcapampa, the lost city of the Incas. Guided the last steps by a young Quechua boy, however, he discovered not the rumored lost city, but the ruins of Machu Picchu, a city totally unknown to the outside world, and one of the wonders of the world.

Since the days of conquistador Hernán Cortés, rumours have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden deep in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes speak of ancestors who fled there to escape the Spanish invaders, and warn the legendary city is cursed: to enter it is a death sentence. They call it the Lost City of the Monkey God. In 1940, swashbuckling journalist Theodore Morde returned from the rainforest with hundreds of artefacts and an electrifying story of having found the City – but then committed suicide without revealing its location. Three quarters of a century later, bestselling author Doug Preston joined a team of scientists on a groundbreaking new quest. In 2012 he climbed aboard a single-engine plane carrying a highly advanced, classified technology that could map the terrain under the densest rainforest canopy. In an unexplored valley ringed by steep mountains, that flight revealed the unmistakable image of a sprawling metropolis, tantalizing evidence of not just an undiscovered city but a lost civilization. To confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quickmud, plagues of insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. They emerged from the jungle with proof of the legend... and the curse. They had contracted a horrifying, incurable and sometimes lethal disease. Suspenseful and shocking, filled with history, adventure and dramatic twists of fortune, The Lost City of the Monkey God is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century.

"Very well, Waldo; proceed." "Wonder if this isn't a portion of the glorious climate, broken loose from its native California, and drifting up this way on a lark?" "If so, said lark must be roasted to a turn," declared the third (and last) member of that little party, drawing a curved fore-finger across his forehead, then flirting aside sundry drops of moisture. "I can't recall such another muggy afternoon, and if we were only back in what the scientists term the cyclone belt -" "We would be all at sea," quickly interposed the professor, the fingers of one hand vigorously stirring his gray pompadour, while the other was lifted in a deprecatory manner. "At sea, literally as well as metaphorically, my dear Bruno; for, correctly speaking, the ocean alone can give birth to the cyclone."

South of the Dead Sea, between Palestine and Jordan, nestles Petra and the Wadi Musa. That ancient “rose-red city, half as old as time,” lies deeply recessed in the Edomite mountains virtually impregnable against attack. It is a place of natural grandeur with rocky tomb-temples, rediscovered in the last century and doubtless the secret capital of a once prosperous Arabian trading empire. No wonder archaeologists have endured the hardships of the terrain to gaze upon its well preserved rock-hewn structures, and write scholarly papers about its mysteries. Set against this background, Lost City is the story of a Jewish girl who leaves Europe at the end of the War but soon finds herself in need of the protection Petra affords. The plot leads on to the events described in the book of Revelation, and the events foretold in Scripture are seen through the eyes and lives of those who undergo its tribulations. This prophetic fiction vividly recounts the pressures of Jewish persecution and the full shock of coming prophetic events.
