What the Critics Say

"The plot involves Austin and his partner, Joe Zavala, who are investigating a feud between a radical environmentalist group and a Danish cruiser. Austin and Zavala must come to the rescue of men trapped on the ship. They find that a giant multinational corporation is seeking to kill anyone who attempts to stop its efforts to control the seas. There's lots of action, as always; Austin dodges a hand-grenade attack by plunging into frigid water and is saved at the last minute, he fights off attackers with a trash-can lid, and - on a number of occasions - the two 'face certain death'. 'Imagine what it feels like to be torn apart by razor-sharp teeth and scattered over the ocean', one of the bad guys tells them. So it goes, more than 400 pages of action and high jinks that Cussler's fans will relish." (Booklist)
"A centuries-old treasure from the sea and a shadowy multinational corporation comprise this action adventure, skillfully read by James Naughton. He fluidly handles Eskimo dialects, various other accents, human sacrifice, and heated battle scenes with ease. His portrayal of Dr. Barker, an ego-driven fanatic, skillfully reveals the man's madness. In imperious tones, Naughton paints an unpleasant, yet captivating, picture of the chaos and murder Barker practices. Opposing him, the dashing leader of the NUMA special assignments team, Austin, is woven into the story with such bravado that the listener almost cheers. This story is well suited to listening because of its strong characterizations and sound effects." (AudioFile)

    "Abridged and will be better un abridged"

    The story is typical fun Cussler but it feels like major parts are missing in this abridged version. I went and bought the hardcover and I was right the abridgment is not the best and not up to the standards of other abridgments I have heard in the past (blue gold) here on Audible. Fair listen.

    "Entertaining, but....."
    What made the experience of listening to White Death the most enjoyable?

    Good narration, but I prefer Scott Brick's.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Satisfying ending, typical for Cussler.


    Have you listened to any of James Naughton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I found 'White Death' entertaining, but less so than most other Cussler/Kemprecos collaborations. Bit of a rehash of a common theme this time. Still, use of metaphor was superb, as always, and the crew of the Oregon captivated me, as usual.

    "Very Disappointed"

    I am a huge Clive Cussler fan. Although this book follows the typically formulaic approach, which I like, it fell very short in the delivery. It missed the important descriptions and transitions that normally make a Cussler book flow well. The full version may be OK. But this abridged version is not worth the money.
