Deep beneath the Antarctic ice cap, scientist Lauren Burgess has discovered a secret that could change the face of human knowledge. Then a desperate mayday call comes in. Two explorers, one of them the legendary Julian Fitzgerald, are stranded out on the ice and a rescue is their only hope. Lauren puts the ground breaking scientific work on hold as she leads a dangerous rescue mission into the frozen void. But after returning to the base, the pressure of isolation gradually takes its toll on Fitzgerald and his true dark nature is revealed. Lauren and her scientific team must fight for their very lives. On the run with injured members of the team, sub-zero conditions and a madman on the loose, the odds are against them and time is running out.

From the Back Cover:

Filmmaker and real-life adventurer Matt Dickinson has climbed Mount Everest and trekked the icy wastes of Antarctica, experiences which bring this edge-of-the-seat thriller to chilling life.
 
TRAPPED IN A FROZEN HELL
Adventurer Carl Norland and celebrity explorer Julian Fitzgerald have teamed up in an attempt to walk across Antarctica at its widest point, a crossing of some 2,000 frozen miles. Success would place their names alongside those of such polar legends as Scott, Shackleton, and Admundsen, but when their goal proves beyond their reach, a frantic rescue begins.
 
A DESPERATE BID FOR RESCUE BEGINS
Hundreds of miles away at drilling station Capricorn, scientist Laura Burgess and her team have made a discovery that will stagger the scientific world. News of their discovery must wait, however, as an urgent plea for rescue reaches the remote camp. Into a gathering storm, the rescuers race to snatch the dying adventurers from nature's hungry grasp.
 
WHILE A DEADLY SECRET THREATENS THEM ALL
But even the Antarctic's unending whiteness cannot hide the utter darkness of a madman's heart. Just as salvation seems imminent, a terrible secret threatens to turn the saviors into unwitting victims. And all the while, nature gathers her strength, determined to lay claim to them all...

From the Inside Flap:

Set in Antarctica ? an ultra-contemporary thriller about an astonishing scientific breakthrough threatened by a psychotic explorer.

With its overwhelming Antarctic backdrop this is a thrilling story of scientific breakthrough, disaster and extraordinary personal tensions. From the outside Julian Fitzgerald is a traditional British hero, an expedition leader to the extremes of the earth and a PR dream. But his latest challenge in Antarctica has gone badly wrong ? and a call for help which is not as it seems brings him into contact with a group of scientists who have uncovered a remarkable secret deep in the core of the continent. As Fitzgerald?s true nature is revealed, the lives of the whole base are at risk ? together with a dramatic ecological discovery that could transform human knowledge.
