Product description

The towering iceberg drifting in the North Atlantic was a floating tomb. Embedded in the great gleaming mass was a ship - sealed in so solidly that not even its mast protruded. Here was a sea mystery to rank alongside the Bermuda Triangle and the Marie Celeste. But for Major Dirk Pitt, top troubleshooter for the National Underwater and Marine Agency, it was also the first link in a fantastic chain of events that would lead him too close - and too often - to violent death. And to the discovery of the most sinister and bizarre conspiracy of the century ...ICEBERG.

Review quote

For Raise the Titanic!: 'A great adventure thriller which spins from one dizzying climax to another ... Riveting ... simply super and very cleverly done' Publishers Weekly **

Editorial reviews

Major Dirk Pitt, sent to investigate a ship the Coast Guard has discovered embedded in a North Atlantic iceberg, finds a mysterious hole bored through the ice to the ship itself. The wildly improbable action then moves to Iceland where a multinational superconspiracy called Hermit Limited is trying to save the world via a takeover of Haiti and the Dominican Republic as stepping stones to the capture of South America. The scheme is directed in part by a vastly wealthy transsexual who has an ocean probe for mining rare minerals from the bottom. The sex-changer pretends to be his/her own twin sister. Dirk Pitt, like you-know-who, is a deathproof intelligence officer, an epicure, and one-up on every subject. The story is ridiculous and the confrontation displays the naked transsexual steaming for Pitt. Styleless stuff, for all the derivative bravura. (Kirkus Reviews)
