The Kurt Austin adventures continue to grow exponentially, both in popularity and praise. “An excellent series,” wrote Publishers Weekly of Lost City. “Kidnappings, hair’s-breadth escapes, fierce battles, strange science, beautiful women and plenty of action add up to vintage Cussler.”
His new one, however, is the most dramatic adventure yet.
Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At its weakest, it disorients birds and animals, and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter….
Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work disappeared, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an antiglobalization group plans to use it to give the world’s industrialized nations a small jolt, before reversing the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed. Once it starts, there is nothing anyone can do.
Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced dire situations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. This time . . .even they may be too late.
Rich with all the hair-raising action and endless imagination that have become Cussler’s hallmarks, Polar Shift is a wonderful thriller—indeed, “vintage Cussler.”
