Overview

Unspoiled. Uninhabited. Under attack...

On the wind-swept, Ice-covered continent of Antartica, Roger Gordian's UpLink Technologies has established a scientific research facility called Cold Corners. But its testing of potential robotic landing craft for use on Mars is disrupted when one of the rovers disappears — along with the repair team sent out after it.

Fear of discovery has prompted a renegade consortium — that is illegally using Antartica as a nuclear waste dump — to wipe out the UpLink base. Now, the men and women of Cold Corners have only themselves to rely on as the consortium mounts its decisive strike against the ice station — and the final sunset plunges them into the total darkness of a polar winter.

About the Author

A little more than thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

Here's a little hard to keep track of as it went from area to area and I enjoyed it the final ending was a surprise

Although it is a little short and the character development is slow and disjointed, the plot is believeable and it is a good book.

This book is set up nicely with an interesting plot about (presumably) artificially-created gems and their 'laundering' through a legitimate dealer. The problem is that there is so much character development and so many side stories, that there is almost no time in the book left for the resolution of the crisis. It seems as if saving the world is a mere afterthought and gets a scant few pages of attention. The premise of the book left itself open to a much richer resolution, I was disappointed when I realized that there were only 20-30 pages left and we were no closer to ending the story. As a result the ending seemed very contrived and slap-dash.

I've read every book in this series, and they never cease to surprise me with their clever, sophisticated plots. Here we get crooked gem dealers in New York's diamond district, Pakistani terrorists set to kill millions in the New York/Tri-state area, and rebel action in Kashmir/India, all tossed into the pot with plenty of characterization. Super!
