Amazon Editorial Review

The twentieth of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt novels, Arctic Drift is a white-knuckle ride of a novel that you won't want to put down! A foundered Victorian ship looking for the fabled Northwest Passage holds a secret in its icy grave...When Dirk Pitt of "National Underwater and Marine Agency" (NUMA)[registered] is almost blown to pieces in a lab explosion, he suspects sabotage. The lab in question belongs to a scientist hoping to use a rare mineral to combat greenhouse gases - but who would want to destroy our one chance to save the planet? But there are those who will do anything to control such a valuable prize. Pitt's investigations take him to the Arctic in search of a clue to the origins of this precious mineral. There he and NUMA[registered] colleague Al Giordino must battle for survival against the hostile elements and an evil megalomaniac who is about to plunge the North American continent into war...Arctic Drift is a white-knuckle ride of a novel that once picked up you won't want to put down.
