I normally associate Koontz as a horror writer, but this is more of a mystery thriller. A great read set in the vast landscape of the article, Koontz really captures the atmosphere.
I would say it's pretty original, with a good set of characters with different backgrounds, but all fit for arctic exploration.
Great read from a brilliant writer.

Bound to give you chillsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 January 2021
A glimpse into the very near future!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 May 2018
I’m still reading this book but I can say it’s a page turner, and in light of recent news coverage about drought conditions in South Africa and the possibility of using icebergs to help ease the situation, the storyline is prophetic!

Chilling!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 July 2019
This is one of those stories that you can't believe what's happening, however it is happening and all you can do is keep reading in the slim chance that hope will win over despair. Get ready for a tense unstoppable read....

Fantastic story!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2020
Was a bit slow to start but before long it had me hook, line and sinker. On the edge of my seat for the rest of the book, couldn't put it down
