A scientist working in the arctic is witness to a commercial airliner that crash lands close to his base, but once he rescues the survivors it turns out that not everything is as it seems.
Another MacLean novel set in the arctic, this one more of a journey through extreme conditions rather than anything else. The main characters, and the smaller characters are all well put together and distinctive, not confusing the reader with similarities.
The action is mundane compared to today’s action books but still manages to leave the reader wincing at some of the descriptions. I defy anyone to read this book and not feel a shiver.
