A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming . . . a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Columbia . . . a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war . . . NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission, captain and crew perished to a man--and if Pitt and his colleague Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them.… (mere)

1849. Dos buques surcan las gélidas aguas del Ártico. Sus imponentes proas rompen el hielo para abrirse camino por una de las rutas más peligrosas e inexploradas del mundo: el Paso del Noroeste, que conecta los océanos Atlántico y Pacífico a través del Ártico. Al mando, el experimentado explorador sir John Franklin y, a bordo de las naves, una aguerrida tripulación preparada para pasar hambre, frío, epidemias y todo tipo de adversidades. Sin embargo, no sabrán enfrentarse a lo que los habitantes de los hielos llaman "el aliento del diablo", una leyenda espeluznante que poco a poco irá cobrando visos de realidad.
En la actualidad. Una bioquímica llamada Lisa Lane descubre la manera de reducir los gases que provocan el calentamiento global mediante una recreación artificial a gran escala de la fotosíntesis. Para este proceso, es necesario un raro y peligroso metal llamado rutenio, que puede resultar letal para quien lo manipule. Al mismo tiempo, un magnate canadiense está dispuesto a todo para silenciar a la científica.

Very cool. ( )

I enjoyed this book. Although not great literature, it was interesting, suspenseful, and hard to put down. Most of Cussler's books are fairly simple, but suspenseful, and so are an easy read. I thought this was the best I've read so far of his books - a bit more complex and suspenseful than the others. My ratings are not absolute, but usually relative to the genre I feel it fits into, so keep that in mind.

I read a lot of books like this, while exercising or just relaxing. I can sit on my stationary bike for an hour or more while reading - sometimes even while exercising. :-)

The book had a little tie-in with another book I read a while back, "The Terror", by Dan Simmons, who is an author I like a lot.

If you like the sort of book that's easy to read, where to good guys seem to always win, then you may enjoy this or other Cussler books. ( )

This story was stretched out way too much but I stuck with it. The good and the evil in the Canadian North was the setting and the goal was solution of the world's global warming problem...awwww, don't it make you feel all warm and fruzzy inside? And, in the little mini-plots, just when you think that the hero is done for, a solution appears. Funny, that the director or a major DC agency has time to get out and play in the arctic...and his deputy too. Who's running the shop? Talking to Congress, cajoling Senators? Incredible. ( )

In memory of Leigh Hunt. And yes, there really was a Leigh Hunt.
A dear friend, bon vivant, wit, and madcap
Don Juan who had a way with women
that made him the envy of every man in town. I killed him off in the prologues of ten Dirk Pitt books. He always wanted to play a bigger role in the stories but didn't complain because he enjoyed the fame. So long, old pay, you are sorely missed.

The cry rattled through the ship like the howl of a wounded jungle beast, a mournful wail that sounded like a plea for death.
