9780099577782: The Blue Ice

What makes a man love metals more than anything else in the world? What makes a man lose all sense of moral perspective when he is on the trail of mineral wealth? What makes a man throw love away for something a women can't understand. Hammond Innes supplies the answer in one word: Excitement. In this spell binding story he tells of a mining engineer who commits every known crime—including murder—in his relentless search for the precious metal.

A thriller which tells of George Farnell's legacy, which came to light ten years after his disappearance. Two lines of poetry and a lump of mineral ore were all he left, yet they were enough to send Bill Gansert into a maze of ambition and treachery.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It all begins with a lump of rock. To Bill Gansert, it seems a message from beyond the grave; the legacy of his one-time colleague George Farnell who disappeared in a storm of mystery and suspicion ten years ago. The rock, an enticing hint at a rich, hidden supply of mineral ore, leads Gansert and team of men to Norway and to a glacial labyrinth of mountains, following in Farnell s footsteps to the source of the ore. But others have heard of the rock, and the wealth it promises, and are also hot on the trail. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099577782
