Charles Yelland thought he had the perfect life until a faked photograph appeared in a newspaper on the morning of his oil company’s annual general meeting showing an exploration rig in Antarctica. He didn’t think that his world could get any worse. Within hours, presidents and prime ministers were telephoning each other to find out whether oil had actually been discovered and whether the sixty-year-old Antarctic Treaty, with its suspension of territorial claims, was now dead. But then, his daughter goes missing.


When her former boss at the CIA approaches her for a case, Michaela (Mike) Kingdom is tempted into a situation that on the surface of it seems like a straightforward kidnapping of the daughter of a very rich man. Further investigation reveals that it is rather more complicated, with international implications after a potentially enormous oil field is discovered in the Antarctic, putting the Antarctic Treaty of 1959 in jeopardy.


The Tip of the Iceberg is a thought-provoking and gripping story of kidnap and intrigue.
