A bit disappointing. ( )
  nx74defiant | Apr 7, 2017 |
I don't know the science of the Methane (Fire Ice), but it strikes me as being credible. These books almost seem to take their cue from some of the countless ships that Clive Cussler has located in real life. This story has a tragic event, but unlike many of the Pitt series the results are far less dramatic and flamboyant. Austin certainly enjoys the beautiful woman that NUMA scientists seem to have a knack for finding wherever they go, but again it is toned down quite a bit. Whether on his own or in collaboration with another author, if a book has Clive Cussler's name on it you invariable get your money's worth. ( )

Stuck a little in this book getting back into it so I can move onto White Death.

Another one that fits right into the formula for the Cussler stable. I still like Paul K as one of the best writers in the stable - good job. ( )

Exploration team that has a knack for saving the world from global disasters and ruthless megalomaniacs. The dastardly villain is Boris Razov, a potentially insane Russian millionaire who thinks he's the second coming of Ivan the Terrible and has plans to destroy the East Coast with an enormous tidal wave. The premise may sound silly—would-be czars, giant tsunamis—but the authors skillfully make it all come together. This intriguing, high-tech adventure... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399148728, Hardcover)

In Serpent, Clive Cussler introduced a hero for the new millennium in Kurt Austin, the leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team. In previous encounters, Austin and his colleague Joe Zavala have battled eco-extortionists and mad empire builders-but they have never faced a menace like the one before them now.

In the heart of the old Soviet Union, a mining tycoon has proclaimed himself czar of Russia. Claiming Romanov ancestry and backed by billions of dollars, he is determined to overthrow the already shaky Russian government-and U.S. opposition doesn't bother him one bit. A little crisis of their own should distract the Americans for a while, and he knows just the thing. . . .

Filled with all the hair-raising action and endless imagination that are Cussler's hallmarks, Fire Ice is a dazzling thriller from the grandmaster of adventure fiction.

Kurt Austin, leader of NUMA's (National Underwater and Marine Agency's) Assignments Team and the protagonist-hero of Serpent (1999) and Blue Gold (2000), returns to take on a mining tycoon who has proclaimed himself the czar of Russia. The U.S. opposes this move, fearing that, with the country's economy at an all-time low and the power of organized crime at an all-time high, Russia's legally elected president will be ousted from office.… (more)
