Anarctica is the last unconquered continent, a murderous expanse of howling winds, blinding whiteouts and deadly crevasses. On one edge of Antarctica is Wilkes Station. Beneath Wilkes Station is the gate to hell itself...

A team of U.S. divers, exploring three thousand feet beneath the ice shelf has vanished. Sending out an SOS, Wilkes draws a rapid deployment team of Marines-and someone else...

First comes a horrific firefight. Then comes a plunge into a drowning pool filled with killer whales. Next comes the hard part, as a handful of survivors begin an electrifying, red-hot, non-stop battle of survival across the continent and against wave after wave of elite military assassins-who've all come for one thing: a secret buried deep beneath the ice...

Great action read that keeps you entertained, with incredible detail. This plot never slows down so is good for those who have a short attention span! Easiest read I've had in a while, thoroughly enjoyed.

literally non stop action from the beginning of the book till the very end. (not kidding)

too much action however. There is no contrast. So it is just an intense book all the way through. (with 1 small break)

The book is good not because the writing is good but simply because the plot grabs you right from the beginning and doesn't let you down until the very end. It cannot be easy to write such a long book (700 pages or so) and simply keep the action going non-stop

Love this book! It is fantastic and is a great military mystery/thriller. You won't regreat the time you spend reading it, but be warned, once you start it's hard to put down!!
