What is really at stake with global warming? The Arctic ice caps are breaking up. Europe and the East Coast of the Unites States brace for a tidal wave. Meanwhile, former French intelligence officer John Spencer Larivière, his karate-trained, steamy Eurasian partner, Victoire, and their computer-genius sidekick, Luc, pick up an ordinary freelance assignment that quickly leads them into the heart of an international conspiracy. Off the coast of Greenland, a ship belonging to the French geological research firm Terre Noire is in serious trouble. The murder of an important scientist jeopardizes evacuation. On land another killer is roaming the icy peaks after researchers, while a huge crevasse splits Greenland apart. In the glacial silence of the great north, a merciless war is being waged. Global warming and subsequent natural disasters hide international rivalries over discoveries that will change the future of humanity.

Book Description:

A cracking ice cap, rival multinationals, cutthroat espionage...

From the Author:

""Today, one of the key battlegrounds is business, and both countries and multinational corporations are fighting for key strategic knowledge they hope to be the first to use. In my novel The Greenland Breach, my heroes are little-known actors in this economic war for the future. Those with the best information will win the battle. The blood splattered on the ice sheets of Greenland belongs to shadow fighters, mercenaries in battles we don’t learn about on the evening news."" --Bernard Besson

Translator's comments: “I’m a thriller addict. This is one I couldn’t put down. It’s stylish and fast-paced, with beautifully orchestrated action– ike a sophisticated manga–and it’s written by a man who knows exactly what he’s doing. Bernard Besson worked at the top in French intelligence and with the police; he knows the milieu, he’s very convincing. And his tale of environmental catastrophe feels truly timely. The images of the collapse of Greenland as the icecap melts are stunning and stay with you, every bit as much as the finely-tuned intrigue of industrial espionage. They’re up there, wreaking havoc!” --Julie Rose
