Crisis polar (Archivos Numa 6)

by Clive Cussler Paul Kemprecos

Inversión polar. Este es el nombre de un fenómeno que puede se diera a menudo en el pasado. Cuando se manifiesta débilmente, sigue desorientando a los pájaros, a los animales y daña las instalaciones eléctricas. En su forma más virulenta, causa erupciones volcánicas, terremotos y drásticos cambios climáticos. Así hasta llegar a una posible destrucción de toda la materia viva... Hace sesenta años, un excéntrico científico húngaro descubrió cómo provocar artificialmente una inversión pero sus investigaciones desaparecieron (o eso se creía). Ahora, el carismático líder de un grupo antiglobalización planea utilizarlas para asustar a las naciones industrializadas. El único problema es que dicho proceso es irreversible y, una vez empieza, no se puede hacer nada para detenerlo. Austin, Zavala y el resto de la NUMA se han visto antes en situaciones muy comprometidas, pero nunca en una tan peligrosa como esta. Esta vez, incluso ellos pueden llegar demasiado tarde. «Acción e imaginación desbordante, las marcas de fábrica de Clive Cussler.»Los Angeles Times
