Excellent thriller which you will not put down!Reviewed in the United States on 27 May 2017
Fiona Snyckers had me glued to a chair until I finished this thriller! Imagine Antarctica in winter, with giant storms and unimaginably dangerous conditions outside the almost impregnable base, where Caroline and a group of about 50 people prepare to face the coldest months that exist on earth. Caroline is the doctor, with one highly trained male South African black nurse to assist her. The unthinkable happens ... and Caroline is on her own ... or is she? Almost every chapter ends on a cliffhanger. I do not pretend to understand the mechanical stuff or the medical science, but I trust that the author did her research. Wow, this is a roller-coaster ride of a book! It should make a brilliant film. Highly recommended for those who like fairly fast-paced thrillers.
Second book in the Sisters Trilogy as good as the first, Now Following You.Reviewed in the United States on 7 December 2017
Spire is the second in the Sisters Trilogy and as good as the first book, Now Following You. I found this story of the sister, Caroline, engrossing. She is an extraordinarily strong woman left alone (but maybe not) to face a nine month winter on the base camp at Antarctica. I am in awe of her heroism and sheer courage. I loved finding out about conditions on Antarctica. Besides being a page-turner, the setting is fascinating and the research staggeringly thorough.
A who-dunnit of note.Reviewed in the United States on 12 June 2017
A riveting pot-boiler that ruined my day by coming to an end. The twists and turns got me so anxious I had to go make a pizza to calm down. Seriously. Medically, technologically and cyber-rich in the most fascinating ways. The author must have endlessly badgered experts to achieve such research excellence. This has to become a movie. Zero chance of you predicting outcomes. I just clung to the hope that the good guys mostly win. Not a single typo. Rare even from giant publishing houses. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
Courageous and hauntingReviewed in the United States on 26 August 2019
As someone who house sits on her own quite regularly I can quite well imagine the feelings Caroline experienced. Although I could always go out...
A Great BookReviewed in the United States on 4 June 2017
Couldn't put it down. Was kept in suspence to the very end. Learned much about Antartica and living and operating in extreme circumstances.
