What Is the Order of Clive Cussler's Novels?

Although the first book in Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt Adventure series was "The Mediterranean Caper," which he wrote in 1973, the author's website suggests that people read his 1983 "Pacific Vortex" first. After that, the books follow in chronological order, starting with "Iceberg," "Raise the Titanic" and "Vixen 03," from the 1970s. Next in line are "Night Probe," "Deep Six," "Cyclops," and "Treasure," from the 1980s.

Cussler wrote six books during the 1990s, including "Dragon," "Sahara," 'Inca Gold," "Shockwave," "Flood Tide," and "Atlantis Found." Next came "Valhalla Rising," "Trojan Odyssey," "Black Wind," and "Treasure of Khan." "Arctic Drift," "Crescent Dawn," "Poseidon's Arrow" and "Havana Storm," are the last books in the series as of September 2015.

In addition to his Dirk Pitt novels, Cussler has written several other series, including "The Oregon Files," "The NUMA Files," "Fargo Adventure," and the Isaac Bell detective series. Cussler's website, Clive-Cussler-Books.com provides the order of these.

Clive Cussler began his writing career in 1965. Prior to that, he served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, worked as a copy writer and produced radio ads.
