Written in English

352 pages

Just seventy-two hours ago, Dirk Pitt was lying in
the hot California sun with a beautiful woman, a
Scotch-rocks in one hand, but an urgent call from
Admiral James Sandecker, his commander at the
National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA),
brings Pitt out of the warm Pacific breezes and straight
into a North Atlantic deep freeze. The reason: the dis-
covery of a long-missing luxury yacht, en route to a
secret White House rendezvous, frozen solid in a mil-
lion-ton tombstone of ice.
Tunneling his way into the core of the berg, Pitt
comes upon a gruesome scene -- a crew of corpses, hor-
ribly incinerated at their posts -- but the vessel's price-
less cargo, which could alter the balance of world
power and put the threat of annihilation at America's
doorstep, has vanished.
This discovery is the springboard from which Clive
Cussler -- The Grand Master of Adventure -- launches a
compelling and powerful story that takes Dirk Pitt from
the remote, uninhabited tundra of Iceland to the frigid
abyss of the North Atlantic, determined to force his
deadly, unseen opponent -- a multibillionaire in the
business of playing God -- to make his next move. But
first Pitt will have to penetrate the shroud of mystery
concealing a titanic network of international financial
intrigue -- and mass murder.
Lives, nations, continents are at stake. And
although his enemies may have the firepower as
always, Dirk Pitt has the skill and the daring, the ruth-
lessness and resourcefulness to meet it. He also has
Kirsti Fyrie, an Icelandic beauty whose twin brother
died on the ice-encased yacht and who carries in her
heart the secret that Pitt needs to destroy his opponents
in this deadly game.
Iceberg is classic Cussler.

First Sentence

"Lieutenant Commander Lee Koski clamped his teeth a notch tighter on the stem of a corncob pipe, jammed his knotted fists two inches deeper in his fur-lined wind-breaker and shivered in the intense cold."
