The new international bestseller from the grand-master of adventure fiction.
On the shores of the Black Sea, Kurt Austin and the NUMA team discover an abandoned submarine base commandeered by a mining tycoon who claims Romanov ancestry. Backed by his incredible wealth, the tycoon has proclaimed himself Czar of Russia. He is determined to overthrow the already shaky Russian government - and he has a terrifying surprise in store for the Americans that will ensure they don't interfere. But standing in the way are Kurt Austin and the NUMA team . . .
Packed with the hair-rasing action and dazzling imagination that are his hallmarks, Fire Ice is a stunning new thriller from a writer at the top of his game.

More and more top thriller writers are appearing in this kind of 'portmanteau' novel, in which a synopsis by a blockbuster name is worked up into a novel by a lesser name (in this case, the capable Paul Kemprecos). It doesn't sound auspicious, but the results are often surprisingly good. And that's the case with Fire Ice. Paul Kemprecos has the measure of Cussler's terse and energetic style, and this is a thriller that provides all the pulse-racing excitement one could wish for. Cussler's tough and resourceful operative Kurt Austin (who has endured much life-threatening danger in previous Cussler books) joins an NUMA team for a sortie on the Black Sea, where they encounter a commandeered submarine base. The master of this base owes not a little to one of Ian Fleming's larger-than-life villains: he is a megalomaniac tycoon, proud of his pre-Revolutionary Russian blue blood and planning to use his considerable fortune to wipe out the current government in Russia. Austin and his operatives have to intervene - but it soon becomes clear that the threat could extend to the USA, should that country choose to take a hand in the scheme. Unvarnished action is the name of the game, and it goes without saying that Cussler and his co-author deliver this derring-do with all the stops out. Plausibility is not the key element here, but few will complain as each successive set piece ratchets up the tension. (Kirkus UK)
