Description

White Death is Clive Cussler's fourth heart-pounding NUMA Files novel. When a confrontation between a radical environmental group and a Danish cruiser off the Faroe Islands sinks a ship, trapping her crew beneath the waves, Kurt Austin of NUMA is immediately called to the rescue. Investigating the collision, Austin uncovers a trail of sabotage that leads to a sinister multinational corporation seeking control of the waves. When he is almost killed for his trouble, Austin knows that this is one organization that will let nothing stand in its way. But with an environmental disaster underway, the clock is ticking for Austin and the NUMA team...Filled with heart-stopping adventure and endless imagination, White Death is an exceptional thriller from a writer at the height of his powers.

Review Text

The book opens with a shipload of Basques trying to escape war galleys at the time of the Inquisition. A second prologue jumps to 1935 and a forced landing in the Arctic by a German airship. We then proceed to the present day when, Oceanus, a sinister multinational organisation breeding mutant `monster` fish, orchestrate the sinking of two ships - a Danish cruiser and the boat belonging to Sentinels of the Sea, a group of anti-whaling activists. The `accident` is intended to divert attention from Oceanus` secret project. Kurt Austin, of NUMA, is called in to rescue the trapped sailors in the sunken Danish ship but suspects that the sinking was no accident. However, proving it, and preventing an environmental disaster, proves deadly dangerous. The link to the past is eventually established and the whole thing comes together. There are some good action sequences, at sea and on land (dog sledding in Washington DC?!), in this page-turning adventure, and Clive Cussler fans will not be disappointed. (Kirkus UK)show more
