Summary

Clive Cussler, "The Grand Master of Adventure", sends his intrepid heroes Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino on their wildest, boldest mission into the ancient world, unlocking extraordinary secrets and solving hideous crimes. Another fabulous story from the most beloved series from the number-one New York Times best-selling author. The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador.... A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit.... An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile.... Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father 3,000 years ago. During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and will threaten everyone and everything he knows - most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it.  Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.

Richard Diamond, Private Detective: Trouble

Summary

Radio’s dark alleys and rain-swept side streets were prowled by plenty of detectives - but, only one of them sat down each week at the piano, after the felons were safely jugged, and crooned to his girlfriend. Dick Powell, the tenacious man with the sweet tenor voice, stars as Richard Diamond, Private Detective! Diamond is a delightfully unpredictable detective - as much inclined to shoot off his mouth in a tight spot as he is to shoot off his gun - who can take more than his share of punishment from goons and gunsels without having his sense of humor take a beating. These eight digitally restored and remastered episodes co-star actress Virginia Gregg as Helen Asher and Ed Begley as Lieutenant Levinson. Wilms Herbert pulls double duty, playing both Desk Sergeant Otis and Helen’s butler Francis. Episodes Include: The Ralph Chase Case 05-15-49; The Tom Waxman Bombing Case (a.k.a. Deadly Delivery) 06-26-49; The Bloody Hat Case 07-02-49; Kidnapped for Revenge (a.k.a. Charles Welsh, Bob Wells) 07-09-49; The Letter Perfect Murder (a.k.a. The Martin Hyer Case) 07-23-49; Thomas Jason Case (a.k.a. Stocks and Blondes) 12-31-49; To Guard a Seal 02-05-50; The Enigma of Big Ed 04-04-52.

Richard Diamond: Surplus Homicides

Summary

Dick Powell established himself as a silver screen icon in the 1930s as the apple-cheeked crooning sensation in countless Depression-era musicals. But the 1940s found him playing every tough guy from Philip Marlowe to Richard Rogue...to Richard Diamond, private detective. Powell's portrayal of Diamond,and his flawless chemistry with Virginia Gregg as the detective's socialite girlfriend, Helen Asher, brought the series' admiringly clever scripts to life. Flippancy and fast quips flew between Diamond and ulcerated cop Lieutenant Levinson (Ed Begley), who really did like Rick in spite of the aggravation he caused. But that was child's play compared to the suffer-no-fools contempt the PI had for the boundless idiocy of Sergeant Otis Ludlum (Wilms Herbert). Sit back and enjoy 16 digitally remastered adventures with a detective who not only solves the perfect crime...but is also in perfect voice. Episodes include: The Jerome J. Jerome Case 09-17-49; The 200,000 Dollar Bundle 09-24-49; René Bennet Protection Case 10-22-49; Bill Kirby Murder Case 10-29-49; The Singing Critic 11-05-49; $50,000 Diamond Heist 11-12-49; The Jacoby Case 11-19-49; William Carter Loses Memory 11-26-49; The Ruby Idol Case 12-03-49; The House of Mystery Case 12-10-49; The John Blackwell Case 12-17-49; Mr. Victor's Daughter 01-15-50; The Jewel Thief 02-19-50; The Martha Campbell Kidnap Case 07-26-50; Edna Wolfe Case 08-09-50; The Rifle Case 06-28-53.
