* ''The Takers'' is an ''Franchise/IndianaJones''-style homage novel by Jerry Ahern, about an [[SelfInsertFic action-adventure novelist]] and his LoveInterest -- an IntrepidReporter who investigates wacky UFO and occult stories -- who team up to investigate the murder of a CIA agent, and the log of a 19th Century expedition searching for {{Atlantis}}. It manages to work in {{Pirates}}, AncientAstronauts, MysteriousAntarctica, {{Flying Saucer}}s, ThoseWackyNazis, a DiabolicalMastermind and his KnifeNut [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter]], and a nuclear submarine! Great reading, but unfortunately the sequel wasn't up to scratch.
