Critics and fans everywhere have welcomed the enormously entertaining new series from Clive Cussler: the adventures of Kurt Austin, taken from the NUMA(r) Files.

Hailed as a hero for the new millennium, Austin is the leader of NUMA(r)'s Special Assignments Team-and the threat before him now is definitely special. A confrontation between a radical environmentalist group and a Danish cruiser has forced Austin and colleague Joe Zavala to come to the rescue of a shipful of trapped men; but when the two of them investigate further, they discover that something far more sinister is at work. A shadowy multinational corporation is attempting to wrest control of the very seas themselves-no matter what havoc results-and is killing anyone who attempts to stop them. When Austin's boat blows up and he just barely survives, it seems certain he is the next in line to die-but he cannot stop now. For the environmental disaster has already begun, and only he and NUMA(r) stand in the way. . . .

Rich with all the hair-raising adventure and endless imagination unique to Cussler, White Death is an exceptional thriller from the grand master of adventure fiction.

White Death --- by --- Clive Cussler. Cussler has whipped up another of his trade-marked action confections consisting of equal parts action, bravery, guns and high explosives. This time a rogue scientist genetically engineers superfish he plans to release into the world’s oceans causing immense ecological harm and inevitable extinction of many of the ocean’s fish. It is up to the heroes of NUMA to stop him. You won’t be able to put this book down.

Despite the witty dialogue and the clownish attitude of the hero, Cussler's formula of throwing historical facts together with a totally unbelievable plot didn't quite work this time. A tribe of killer Eskimos, an albino doctor specializing in fish genetics who happens to be an adopted son of the tribe, a German zeppelin and a Basque leader holding historical relics. Tried too hard to bring them all together without success
