In the early days of World War II, the infamous German Luftwaffe embark upon an expedition to Antarctica's icy continent. Their mission ended in disaster - its frozen secrets lying forgotten for almost a century . . .
When a former NUMA colleague mysteriously disappears, Kurt Austin and his assistant Joe Zavala journey to the freezing bottom of the world to investigate.

With a determined madman and a monstrous storm at their heels, Kurt and the NUMA team must unravel the Nazi-era plot, and save the earth from a freeze that would bury it once and for all.

In bestseller Cussler's gripping 18th NUMA Files novel (after 2020's Journey of the Pharaohs, also with Brown), climate expert Cora Emmerson, while doing research in Berlin, comes across references to a 1939 German expedition to Antarctica that discovered a lake heated by geothermal energy containing a strange green algae that seemed to cause water to rapidly freeze. Cora goes to Antarctica, where she collects ice core samples containing the algae. She alerts the National Underwater and Marine Agency, for which she once worked, that she has made a find that has the power to "remake the world." Weeks later, as Cora heads home, a vessel disguised as an iceberg crashes into her ship. Unknown attackers kill the crew and steal Cora's samples. Cora survives to join the subsequent investigation by NUMA's Kurt Austin and sidekick Joe Zavela, which leads them to Ryland Lloyd, an environmentalist who believes climate change actually benefits the planet in the long run. No surprise, Lloyd turns out to have a hidden agenda related to the ice. The suspense builds as the NUMA team races to avert global catastrophe. This is another classic Cussler action thriller.
