Use Linux to recover deleted files from NTFS USB drive

I am currently using Ubuntu and I was wondering if there is a Linux based file recovery tool that can be used to recover files deleted on NTFS drives. These NTFS will be mounted via USB adapters.

I know that there are Windows programs out there, but I want to use Linux.
