Tropical Ice - Book

More than 60 million sharks are killed every year for their fins. Millions of seahorses are pulverized to create an imaginary aphrodisiac. And Matt Oliver is out to stop the carnage.

Praise for the Scuba Eco-Thriller Tropical Ice

"One of the best adventure thrillers I've ever read and I've read a million! A true page-turner. Listen, do you like Clive Cussler's novels? Ken Smith is a better writer than old Clive, and he's actually lived the life he writes about. Go! Buy! Trust me! You won't be sorry."

Homer Hickam, author, Rocket Boys/October Sky and Carrying Albert Home

"In Tropical Ice, you can taste the rum, feel the heat, and smell the blood. Like a sun-bleached palm frond crusted in sea salt, there's a rough coating of true-life Caribbean clinging to every phrase and scene."

Alan Dean Foster, award-winning novelist, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Riddick

"Tropical Ice moves faster than a hungry shark. This is a nail-biting page-turner, one that pits a reluctant travel writer against the underbelly of Belize. The book's ending -- actually there's more than one remarkable ending -- is one that I sure never saw that coming.

Mary Peachin, author, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Sharks and Scuba Caribbean

"Tropical Ice is a fast moving thriller that would grab any adventure reader but will especially appeal to scuba divers. It's a well-crafted tale of intrigue, suspense, corrupt behavior and a nice nod to conservation. Perfect for the beach, poolside, or long decompression stops."

Bret Gilliam, Founder of TDI/SDI, past president, UWATEC
