Review

`We had pins and needles trying to unravel the truth throughout Turner's crisply written, cleverly plotted tale of deceit' -- iBooks Editor `Ann Turner has produced a vivid, suspenseful thriller that should appeal to those with a taste for armchair travel' * Sydney Morning Herald * 'A taut and tightly wound page-turner' * Marie Claire *

Product Description

'A cinematic page-turner' Weekend Australian

By the bestselling author of The Lost Swimmer, a tense, eerie thriller set in the icy reaches of Antarctica

When environmental scientist Laura Alvarado is sent to a remote Antarctic island to report on an abandoned whaling station, she begins to uncover more than she could ever imagine.

Reminders of the bloody, violent past are everywhere, and Laura is disturbed by evidence of recent human interference. Rules have been broken, and the protected wildlife is behaving strangely.

On a diving expedition, Laura emerges into an ice cave where she is shocked to see an anguished figure, crying for help. But in this freezing, lonely landscape there are ghosts everywhere, and Laura wonders if her own eyes can be trusted. Has she been in the ice too long?

Back at base, Laura’s questions about the whaling station go unanswered, blocked by scientists unused to outsiders. And Laura just can’t shake what happened in the cave.

Piecing together a past and present of cruelty and vulnerability that can be traced around the world, from Norway, to Nantucket, Europe and Antarctica, Laura will stop at nothing to unearth the truth. As she comes face to face with the dark side of human progress, she also discovers a legacy of love, hope and the meaning of family. If only Laura can find her way . . .

Out of the ice.

Praise for Out of the Ice

‘Turner is a steely and confident writer, concerned in the main part with reeling her reader in and out of suspense with a sense of concentrated exhilaration … A cinematic page-turner that’s well worth the price of admission to the movie house of fiction.’ Weekend Australian

‘a taut and tightly wound page-turner’ Marie Claire

‘Turner is in fine form, exploring silence and secrets, male and female ways of relating and exploitation and grief.’ West Australian

‘This gripping thriller exposes a dark side of human nature but reveals a newfound hope in love and family.’ Mindfood

'Turner delivers another brilliant suspense novel … solidifying her position as one of Australia’s best thriller writers… A compelling and enormously satisfying thrill ride.’ Better Reading

‘Ann Turner dazzled us with her first novel, The Lost Swimmer. Her new book is another clever, cinematic thriller involving a body of water and an impending sense of dread … Out of the Ice is a fantastically eerie and suspenseful read.’ iBooks
