Just seventy-two hours ago. Dirk Pitt was lying in the hot California sun with a beautiful woman, a Scotch-rocks in one hand, but an urgent call from Admiral James Sandecker, his commander at the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), brings Pitt out of the warm Pacific breezes and straight into a North Atlantic deep freeze. The reason: the discovery of a long-missing luxury yacht, en route to a secret White House rendezvous, frozen solid in a million-ton tombstone of ice.
Tunneling his way into the core of the berg, Pitt comes upon a gruesome scene—a crew of corpses, horribly incinerated at their posts—but the vessel's priceless cargo, which could alter the balance of world power and put the threat of annihilation at America's doorstep, has vanished.
This discovery is the springboard from which Clive Cussler—The Grand Master of Adventure—launches a compelling and powerful story that takes Dirk Pitt from the remote, uninhabited tundra of Iceland to the frigid abyss of the North Atlantic, determined to force his deadly, unseen opponent—a multibillionaire in the business of playing God—to make his next move. But first Pitt will have to penetrate the shroud of mystery concealing a titanic network of international financial intrigue—and mass murder.
Lives, nations, continents are at stake. And although his enemies may have the firepower as always, Dirk Pitt has the skill and the daring, the ruthlessness and resourcefulness to meet it. He also has Kirsti Fyrie, an Icelandic beauty whose twin brother died on the ice-encased yacht and who carries in her heart the secret that Pitt needs to destroy his opponents in this deadly game.
Iceberg is classic Cussler.
CLIVE CUSSLER'S life nearly parallels that of his hero. Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he has garnered an amazing record of success. With his XUMA crew of volunteers, Cussler has discovered more than sixty lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley.
Also, like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features eighty examples of custom coach-work and is one of the finest to be found anywhere.
Cussler divides his time between the deserts of Arizona and the mountains of Colorado.
