Tropical Ice - Book

Writing as KL Smith, Undercurrent editor Ben Davison has produced a fast moving new thriller set at Capt. Jack's Rum Caye Dive Resort in Belize.

Travel writer Matt Oliver, trying to clear his old friend Jack of a murder charge, discovers a horde of shark fins on a deserted Belize caye. He gets chased out of one dive by thugs, discovers a living finned shark on another dive, and on a night dive finds a surprise clue that may help him identify a missing body. He soon finds himself chased by a corrupt American philanthropist, a shady Hong Kong expat dealing in sea horses as aphrodisiacs, running from danger in the mean streets of Belize City, hiding out in a rainforest lodge owned by a beautiful American woman with her own dark secrets ... and that's just the start.

Homer Hickam, who taught astronauts to scuba dive and wrote the book Rocket Boys, which became the movie October Sky starring Jake Gyllenhaal, says:

"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."

And, it's probably the first shark thriller ever where sharks aren't hunting humans, but humans are hunting sharks.
