He has many fiction novels concerning aviation and other transportation modes, tied in with the main character being a professional deep-sea diver and apparent action hero. Vixen 03 for example was about a USAF (or ANG) C-97 that disappeared while flying over Colorado in the 50s or 60s and later discovered by a local fisherman in a Colorado lake. The story expands from there as the cargo aboard the sunken C-97 is discovered.

I used to read all of Clive's books, I loved the earlier books, then they all got a bit repetitive so I haven't read one of his books for at least 20 years. So many authours go the same way after they find fame. .
