A ruthless fortune hunter sails to Norway to unlock the mystery of the Blue Ice in this sweeping adventure at the edge of the world. Bill Gansert thrived during World War II. An industrial genius, he mobilized millions of men and machines for the fight against fascism, but when the war is through, he's cut adrift. Unmoored in a country that doesn't need him anymore, Gansert takes to the sea, embarking on an adventure that will take him to the ends of the earth-and show him the desperate treachery that lies within man's soul. It's been ten years since adventurer George Farnell disappeared after setting out to make his fortune in the frozen wilds of Norway. Two lines of poetry and a shard of rock are all that remain of him, and only Gansert has the wit to understand Farnell's final discovery-and the daring to seize it for his own. With a small crew, he sets out for the Arctic Circle to a whaling station in the icy shadows of the mountain known as Blue Ice, where he will make his fortune anew-or be destroyed by his own poisonous ambition. Inspired by author Hammond Innes's travels among the whalers of Norway, The Blue Ice is a story of hard-driving adventure as only the acclaimed writer of Atlantic Fury, The Wreck of the Mary Deare, and other classics could tell it
