Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Serpent, Clive Cussler introduced a hero for the new millennium in Kurt Austin, the leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team. In previous encounters, Austin and his colleague Joe Zavala have battled eco-extortionists and mad empire builders-but they have never faced a menace like the one before them now.

In the heart of the old Soviet Union, a mining tycoon has proclaimed himself czar of Russia. Claiming Romanov ancestry and backed by billions of dollars, he is determined to overthrow the already shaky Russian government-and U.S. opposition doesn't bother him one bit. A little crisis of their own should distract the Americans for a while, and he knows just the thing. . . .

Filled with all the hair-raising action and endless imagination that are Cussler's hallmarks, Fire Ice is a dazzling thriller from the grandmaster of adventure fiction.

Review:

"Cussler is in top form here, working in a role for Old Ironsides and Czar Nicholas II's crown while throwing in enough derring-do and eco-lore to leave his fans breathless. Coauthor Kemprecos adds his oceanographic expertise to the mix." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"While the fast-paced plot is wildly improbable...and there's nary a doubt that Austin will save the day, the novel is still a lot of good fun. With Cussler's following, this is bound to be a good summertime hit." Library Journal

Review:

"The premise may sound silly...but the authors skillfully make it all come together. This intriguing, high-tech adventure has thrills, wit and a dose of testosterone....While Tom Clancy's books may have gotten bogged down in incomprehensible techno-speak, Cussler knows how to keep a story surging ahead." Book magazine

Synopsis:

The hero of Serpent and Blue Gold confronts a deadly global plot, in the breathtaking new Kurt Austin adventure.
