A Dirk Pitt novel, taking place mainly in Iceland after finding a ship that was, after a fire on the boat, pushed into an ice shelf and eventually became an iceberg. Much intrigue and bad guys doing what bad guys do and an ending which would seem more in line today than when this book was written in 1975. ( )

Congelados dentro de una masa de hielo de un millón de toneladas: los restos carbonizados de un yate de lujo desaparecido hace mucho tiempo, desaparecieron en el camino a una cita secreta en la Casa Blanca. La única pista sobre la carga de valor incalculable y perdida del barco: nueve anillos tallados con adornos y los cuerpos terriblemente quemados de su tripulación.

This is kind of fun, going down memory lane.
This is the exact paperback that I read back in my youth. I don't remember what I paid for it.
Hmmm, come to think about it, I think I stole it from my future ex-husband who was in the navy at that time.
Anyway, this was one of my favorites even though I remember some of the 'scientific' conversations tended to confuse me. Mostly I skimmed over those parts. ( )

Fun 70s adventure story. Tidi one of only two female characters plays damsel in distress. Dirk is the unstoppable hero who saves the world from an evil plot. ( )

[b:Iceberg|41710|Iceberg (Dirk Pitt, #3)|Clive Cussler|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1439683898l/41710._SY75_.jpg|3132229] opens with a solid enough set piece/action scene: a burnt out wreck of a luxary yacht, long since missing, found melted into an iceberg. One thing leads to another and Dirk Pitt stumbles into a cadre of billionaires with a plot to take over not only businesses but countries. For that--plot and set pieces--Iceberg is a solid enough read.

And then... you get to the pretty terrible sexism and homophobia. Pitt finds out the woman he's supposed to be getting information out of is in a serious relationship (which for plot reasons he must not threaten), so decides in the spur of the moment to play a caricature of a gay man and... oof. You can tell this book was published in the 70s and not the particularly progressive sort of 70s either. On top of that, you have sexism wrapped up in a neat little bow with how Pitt and his boss Admiral Sandecker treat Tidi Royal (the latter's secretary). They all treat it so normal that Tidi exists to make coffee and should be yelled at for spilling it on a tossing ship... oy.

It's actually surprising when in the final closing 'so that's how it all happened' section, the main villain is revealed to be transgender, finally transitioning from the male form they were born with to female, taking on the role of their own sister. It's certainly questionable for that to be the villain, but it's actually treated as just another thing by Pitt, which given how badly he deals with women and gay sterotypes is... something at least?

That action is still solid and they're for the most part quick, fun reads. You just have to skip a few parts that have aged... badly. Onward. ( )
