The towering iceberg drifting in the North Atlantic was a floating tomb. Embedded in the great gleaming mound was a ship, sealed so solidly in the ice that not even its mast protruded. The crew of the coast Guard Patrol plane had spotted the blurred outline of the unknown vessel, dropping a red dye marker for identification.

As soon as their aircraft disappeared, two men, camouflaged in white snow-suits, rose from a hiding place on the iceberg and started sending signals on their radio transmitter. Later that week, official investigators Major Dirk Pitt of the Air Force and world-famous oceanographer Dr. Bill Hunnewell found that the red stains had been chipped off the berg. Someone wanted to prevent the discovery of the mystery ship and it macabre secret.

Realizing they had failed, the unknown enemies resorted to brutal violence to prevent the major's helicopter from reaching Iceland. So Dirk Pitt set out on a mission that was to bring him into conflict with conspirators who concealed their aims as well as their identities. It would send him, wounded and on foot, across the lonely tundras of Iceland, and it would take him far beneath the surface of the waters surrounding its shores. He would become involved with a hauntingly beautiful woman, with a few allies and with many enemies.

His strength and skills, his reckless disregard of danger had become a legend, but would they be enough to end a cleverly plotted campaign of terror and cold-blooded murder?

ICEBERG is a bold novel told with cinematic immediacy, a superb blend of action and high drama with as many surprises as an unexploded hand grenade.

About the Author


Clive Cussler is the author of over twenty-five internationally bestselling books, including the Dirk Pitt adventure series, the NUMA FILES novels and the Oregon Files Adventures.

He grew up in Alhambra, California. He later attended Pasadena City College for two years, but then enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War where he served as an aircraft mechanic and flight engineer in the Military Air Transport Service. Upon his discharge, he became a copywriter and later creative director for two leading ad agencies. At that time, he wrote and produced radio and television commercials that won numerous international awards, one at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Cussler began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. Because of this work the Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May of 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is the founder the National Underwater & Marine Agency, (NUMA), a non-profit organisation that dedicates itself to American maritime and naval history. In addition to being Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London.

A noted collector of classic automobiles, Cussler owns 85 of the finest examples of custom coachwork and 50's convertibles to be found anywhere. They are garaged near Golden, Colorado. Today, Cussler divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.
