White Thaw: The Helheim Conspiracy is the third in my series of thrillers, following Category 5 and Prophecy. As you may recall, Drs. Victor Silverstein and Linda Kipling are the protagonists. In contrast to the first two books, Kipling takes the lead here. What follows below is the book summary that appears on the rear cover of both the softback and hardback:
“As governments debate the reality of global climate change, scientists worry about signs that things are going wrong—the melting of the Arctic ice cap, an increasing frequency of severe weather, and an alarming rise in the planet’s temperature. Following the mysterious disappearance of two researchers in Greenland, Dr. Linda Ann Kipling—a meteorologist with the Naval Research Laboratory in Monterey, California—makes an appalling discovery: not all observed climatic aberrations are coming from either natural variation or an increase in greenhouse gases. In Greenland, someone is tampering with nature, risking a cataclysmic event more destructive than any terrorist attack.
“At the same time, Kipling’s dying father informs her of his suspicions that their South American relatives are behind a Nazi resurgence. That family, once part of Hitler’s inner circle, escaped from Germany in 1945 with a fortune in gold. Piecing together the puzzle, Kipling uncovers a connection between the Nazi reawakening and the events in Greenland.
“Together with her boss, NRL’s premiere scientist Dr. Victor Mark Silverstein, Kipling leads the charge to thwart the diabolical Nazi plot. In the end, she finds herself in a fight to the death—one that will determine the future of the planet.”
