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.
