Members of an international Arctic research team have been working for years developing a new and abundant source of fuel. Now they've made a breakthrough that might just fulfill their goal. But, there’s the Global Association of Petroleum Producers that can’t have that happen. They ultimately will resort to any means to stop the development of an abundant new fuel source that threatens their existence. They set about plans that include murder, sabotage and political bribery. Labs are destroyed and members of the team are being killed. Then, at the request of three Senators who are on the payroll of the big oil companies, the team members from Canada have their funding cancelled.
Thoroughly alarmed, remaining team members seek help but the local police ignore their pleas for help even after several have been killed. Finally, they get some help from a joint FBI-CIA operation seeking to protect the new technology by moving surviving members to safety. But, the sabotage continues as an offshore drilling platform off Japan is attacked and attempts are made to stop patent filings. But, things only get worse from there when a Senator is killed as secrets are starting to become known. Deadly secrets.
I found Blood, Fire, and Ice by C. Edgar North to be a soundly written thriller with a new story line approach that I've never encountered before. The author has a good grasp of intrigue, suspense and terror, and the dialogue was spot on. The author did go into a lot of detail and sometimes for me the amount of detail let the story drag a little. However, all it all it was very nicely done and a very good read.
