Review: Arctic Fire by Paul Byers

Imagine the chaos that we would face if there was a worldwide water shortage. Scary right? Well billionaire Nigel Cain has a solution. He’s figured out a way to transport giant icebergs to the US and then use the same transportation equipment as a water treatment system to bring fresh clean water to everyone. All he needs is the final approval that the system is safe and he can dock in New York Harbor and get down to business.

Gabriel Pike is the engineer tasked with that last inspection but as a harsh winter storm wreaks havoc on the iceberg and the hotel/casino on top of it (did I mention Cain was an eccentric billionaire?) Gabriel has serious doubts as to the safety of allowing the iceberg in. When Gabriel voices his concerns he learns that Cain will stop at nothing to ensure the iceberg arrives as planned.

When I was first asked to review Arctic Fire I laughed out loud. I’ve always wondered why someone didn’t just do this exact same thing to help the countries that go through droughts so I was really looking forward to reading this one and I wasn’t disappointed. Arctic Fire is a fast paced read that I finished in just one day. I feel in love with Gabriel Pike from the first chapter and was dying to know just what sinister plot Cain had in mind. I highly recommend this one for anyone who loves suspense thrillers.

I think it's possible that water may become more valuable than oil one of these days. The book sounds good!
