Arctic Drift sees Clive Cussler's greatest hero, Dirk Pitt, fighting his enemies in the cruel Arctic.
A foundered Victorian ship looking for the fabled Northwest Passage holds a secret in its icy grave . . .
When Dirk Pitt of NUMA is almost blown to pieces in a lab explosion, he suspects sabotage. The lab in question belongs to a scientist hoping to use a rare mineral to combat greenhouse gases - but who would want to destroy our one chance to save the planet?
But there are those who will do anything to control such a valuable prize. Pitt's investigations take him to the Arctic in search of a clue to the origins of this precious mineral. There he and NUMA colleague Al Giordino must battle for survival against the hostile elements and an evil megalomaniac who is about to plunge the North American continent into war . . .
Arctic Drift is a white-knuckle ride of a novel that once picked up you won't want to put down. It is the twentieth of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt novels - the series that also includes Raise the Titanic!and his first novel, Mayday - and is co-authored with his son Dirk Cussler.

A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming…a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Colombia…a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war….NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there’s a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition to find the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission, captain and crew perished to a man – and if Pitt and his colleague Al Giordino aren’t careful, the very same fate may await them. Filled with the breathtaking suspense and audacious imagination that have become his hallmarks, this is a tour de force, further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.Review:
Impossible to put down... a compelling sense of adventure that can rival any cinematic blockbuster ( Big Issue)
