CUSSLER, Clive, with Paul KEMPRECOS. Polar Shift : A Novel from the NUMA Files. New York : G.P. Putnam's Sons, (2005). First Printing. Pp (8),-433,(5). 8vo, dark blue paper covered spine, blue paper covered boards. A Kurt Austin Adventure. “Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At the very least, 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, and if that happens-exit Earth. Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work was lost, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an anti-globalization group plans to use the work to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, then reverse the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed. Once the shift starts, there is nothing anyone can do about it. Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced diresituations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. Thi s time . . . even they may be too late.” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 15.00
