the dust jacket: "For thriller fans everywhere,
the electrifying new series from Clive Cussler
has been a cause for rejoicing. With the adventures
of Kurt Austin, taken from the Numa® Files,
"Cussler is in top form," says Publishers
Weekly, with "enough derring-do and ecolore
to leave his fans breathless."
as a hero for the new millennium, Austin is the
leader of NUMA®'s Special Assignments Team-and
the threat before him now is definitely special.
A confrontation between a radical environmentalist
group and a Danish cruiser has forced Austin and
colleague Joe Zavala to come to the rescue of
a shipful of trapped men, but when the two of
them investigate further, they discover that something
far more sinister is at work. A shadowy multinational
corporation is attempting to wrest control of
the very seas themselves-no matter what havoc
results, and is killing anyone who attempts to
stop them. When Austin's boat blows up and he
only barely survives, it seems certain he was
supposed to be the next in line to die, but he
cannot stop now. For the environmental disaster
has already begun, and only he and NUMA® stand
in the way. . .
with all the hair-raising action and endless imagination
unique to Cussler, White Death is an exceptional
thriller from the grand master of adventure fiction."
