Polar shift. At its weakest, it disorients birds and animals, and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes, and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter...
Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift. Now, the charismatic leader of an antiglobalization group plans to use his work to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, before reversing the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed.
Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced dire situations before, but never have they encounterd anything like this.
Rich with all the hair-rasing action and endless imagination that have become Cussler's hallmarks, Polar Shift is a wonderful thriller - indeed, "vintage Cussler."« less
