White Death book description
Hailed as a hero for the new millennium, Austin is the leader of NUMA’s Special Assignments Team – and the threat before him now is definitely special.
A confrontation between a radical environmentalist group and a Danish cruiser has forced Austin and colleague Joe Zavala to come to the rescue of a shipful of trapped men; but when the two of them investigate further, they discover that something far more sinister is at work.
A shadowy multinational corporation is attempting to wrest control of the very seas themselves – no matter what havoc results – and is killing anyone who attempts to stop them.
When Austin’s boat blows up and he just barely survives, it seems certain he is the next in line to die – but he cannot stop now.
For the environmental disaster has already begun, and only he and NUMA stand in the way….
