The New York Times bestselling author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu sets out to uncover the truth behind the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

A few years ago, Mark Adams made a strange discovery: everything we know about the famous city of Atlantis comes from the work of Plato. Then he made a second, stranger discovery: amateur explorers are still actively searching for the sunken city all around the world, based entirely on the clues Plato left behind.

Meet Me in Atlantis is Adams’s enthralling account of his quest to solve one of history’s greatest mysteries. It is a travelogue that takes readers to fascinating locations to meet irresistible characters, an intriguing examination of ancient codes in Plato’s writings, and a deep, often humorous look at the human longing to rediscover a lost world.


Meet Me in Atlantis is like a detective story that tries to assemble all the evidence in one place, but it’s also a travelogue and a comprehensive history…An informative and engrossing read.’ Good Reading

‘Funny, engaging and skeptical, Meet Me In Atlantis is the ultimate travelogue to nowhere.’ Vacations and Travel

‘Adam’s informal prose acts as a remedy transforming an academic topic into a work of travelogue, investigative journalism, and serious philosophical examination.’ Publishers Weekly
