The arctic night is endless. The fear is numbing. Screams freeze in the throat. Death arrives in shades of white. And cold-blooded murder seems right at home. Conducting a strange and urgent experiment on the Arctic icefield, a team of scientists has planted sixty powerful explosive charges that will detonate at midnight. Before they can withdraw to the safety of their base camp, a shattering tidal wave breaks loose the ice on which they are working. Now they are hopelessly marooned on an iceberg during a violent winter storm. The bombs beneath them are buried irretrievably deep . . . and ticking. And they discover that one of them is an assassin with a mission of his own.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz’s The City.A secret Arctic experiment becomes a frozen nightmare, when a team of scientists are set adrift on an iceberg–with a murderer in their midst, and a massive explosive charge only hours away from detonation. This original early Koontz novel–in the tradition of Winter Moon–is now available in large print edition, releasing simultaneously with Ballantine’s mass market edition.
Dean Koontz, the author of many #1 New York Times bestsellers, lives in Southern California with his wife, Gerda, their golden retriever, Elsa, and the enduring spirits of their goldens, Trixie and Anna.
“A stunning chiller.”—The Miami Herald “Jammed with the tensions of imminent disaster. The whole thing unfolds with the timing of a quartz watch.”—Chicago Tribune “Sweeps the reader along at a breathless pace.”—The Daily Telegraph “One of the most suspenseful novels of the season.”—Booklist
