Fast Ice opening lines: The droning of aircraft propellers echoed across the stark winter landscape. It caromed off snowfields and along rivers of ice, a reverberating hum never heard before in this part of Antarctica.
Kurt Austin is playing around with his ice yacht when he and Joe Zavala get a call to get back to work urgently. An ex-Numa employee has gone missing and they are tasked to find Cora. What they find instead is a harrowing proposition. It will take all of their combined efforts, and the skills Kurt has learnt on his ice yacht to prevent what is potentially a world-wide disaster.
Kurt Austin races to Antarctica to stop a chilling plot that imperils the entire planet in the latest novel from the Sunday Times bestselling Grand Master of Adventure, Clive Cussler. When a former NUMA colleague mysteriously disappears, Kurt Austin and his assistant Joe Zavala journey to the freezing edge of the world to investigate. Amidst the perilous waters and frigid temperatures, they soon uncover a Nazi-era plot and terrifying weapon – a man-made, fast-growing ice with the power to usher in a new Ice Age . . .
I am not 100% sure that Clive Cussler had anything to do with this novel as he passed away in 2020. However, Graham Brown has certainly written a Numa novel that follows on from all the other adventures. With a few noticeable writing style differences that makes the book his own. If you are following along on the Numa Files then do not miss this 18th book in the series.
