Tropical Ice by KL SmithUndercurrent publisher, Ben Davsion, writing as KL Smith, has written a blockbuster scuba thriller. Read the reviews. Read the first chapter.

"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, Award winning writer and cinematographer, past president, UWATEC


"In KL Smith's 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. Relax, enjoy, read, and find yourself transported to a place where the trade winds mask murder, parts of some fish are worth their weight in gold, and smiles hide greed heated to boiling by the equatorial sun."

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


"Tropical Ice moves faster than a hungry shark. Smith knows the Caribbean and brings it together in a nail-biting page-turner that pits a reluctant travel writer against the underbelly of Belize: poachers, police, evil expats, and killer hurricanes. And federal agent Maxie McCaw is one tough cookie. The book's ending -- actually there's more than one remarkable ending-- is one that I never saw coming."

- Mary Peachin, Author The Complete Idiots Guide Sharks, Scuba Caribbean


"One of the best adventure thrillers I've ever read and I've read a million! Tropical Ice by my friend and fellow adventurer Ken Smith is 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


"Not enough mainstream fiction confronts the wonton killing of wildlife, but Smith attacks it head on: jaguar trophy hunting, shark finning, reef raping for phony Asian aphrodisiacs, lavish dinners featuring endangered species, you name it. Even for environmentalists, this book is an eye opener."

- Rodger Schlickeisen, Past President Defenders of Wildlife
