Help me find books (and authors) that are similar to Clive Cussler for a gift for my dad. Indiana Jones-ish derring-do! With author recommendations... where to start?

Father's Day is tomorrow, and my dad is having back trouble so I want to get him something for him to read while he recovers. He and I really enjoyed Clive Cussler books when I was a kid so can anyone recommend other authors that are similar in the action-adventure Indiana Jones type-ness (and the best book of theirs if possible).
He and I also liked Tom Clancy. I know he read Robert Ludlum but I did not.
Jack Du Brul and James Rollins have been recommended but I don't know which of their books might be the best. Are there better authors?
