Polar Shift: A Novel from the NUMA Files Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At the very least, it disorients birds and animals and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes, and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter, and if that happens — exit Earth.

Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work was lost, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an anti-globalization group plans to use the work to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, then reverse the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed. Once the shift starts, there is nothing anyone can do about it.

Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced dire situations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. This time...even they may be too late.

Review:

"A certain suspension of disbelief is required, but readers who know and love Clive Cussler's work should have no trouble obliging.....Polar Shift sets a course for adventure, and if you're in the mood for a little escapism, you'll enjoy the voyage." BookReporter.com

Review:

"The plot is inconceivable, but Cussler's loyal fans won't care." Booklist

Review:

"Glacial pace, paper-thin characters, slap-dash prose and a probable warm welcome from a large and loyal audience." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

An anti-globalization group plans to give the world's industrial nations a jolt by using an artificially triggered "polar shift." But the scheme goes awry when the shift cannot be reversed and the NUMA Special Assignments Team is called into action. Available in a Premium Edition.
