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.
Clive Cussler, author of the best-selling Dirk Pitt novels Arctic Drift and The Treasure of Khan, and co-author Paul Kemprecos navigate a treacherous sea of sabotage and conspiracy in White Death, the fourth novel of the action-packed NUMA Files series. Lost City and Polar Shift are the fifth and sixth.

There is something blithely inventive about White Death that is unusual in this mildly macho thriller about professional hard men doing their thing. The book starts with two preludes--one about Basques fleeing the Inquisition with relics, another about Nazi aeronauts coming to grief in the Arctic--and almost at once skitters off to deal with the heroic Karl Austin rescuing Danish sailors from a sunken cruiser. Apparently, the cruiser was sunk by the anti-whaling activists its crew was trying to arrest, but Austin, charmed by one of them, rapidly proves not all was as it seems. Meanwhile, other friends of his are investigating the death of a fisherman who had told them about giant hungry salmon in Canada... This is an up to the moment thriller that speculates intelligently about the biotech business, and inventively about the nature of nationhood and what men will do for the people they regard proprietorially as theirs. Austin in particular is the focus of nail-biting action and suspense sequences whether racing through sea caves, dog sledding through New York or sword fighting in a Zeppelin. -- Roz KaveneyReview:
All-action narrow escapes and the kind of unrelenting plot tension that has won Cussler hundreds of millions of fans worldwide Observer
