About the Book

The plane that crashed in the icy desert of Greenland was empty and without identity. A deserted wreck lying shattered against the freezing landscape. Joe Martin had been on many salvage operations, but his gut feeling told him this one was different. The insurance company and the beautiful widow of the dead pilot had hired him to find out what he could about the crash, but some things were best left alone.

Before long, what should have been a routine mission becomes a hair-raising adventure packed with danger and betrayal. Then a batch of priceless emeralds are thrown into the equation, and Joe's life is on the line.
