Chilly. Choose a warm place to read the eighteenth NUMA files novel by the Clive Cussler franchise, a book titled, Fast Ice. So much of the action takes place in frigid conditions that you might feel the chills as the action propels readers from one cold place to an even colder one. The familiar NUMA cast is back, led by swashbuckling Kurt Austin and his sidekick Joe Zavala. All their skills and the expertise of other recurring characters are drawn into a race to defeat a finely drawn villain, Ryland Lloyd, who is in the final stages of implementing actions that will lead Earth into another ice age. While the formula of this series demands that the good guys win, it’s a close-run thing that will satisfy those readers who love fast-paced action novels. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Fast Ice from amazon.com.
