Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world...
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child.

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologist Evan Marshall and a small group of fellow scientists, an expedition to the Zone represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the effects of global warming.

Everything about the expedition changes, however, with an astonishing find. On a routine exploration of a glacial ice cave, the group discovers an enormous ancient animal, encased in solid ice. The media conglomerate sponsoring their research immediately intervenes and arranges the ultimate spectacle: the creature will be cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed live on television. Despite dire warnings from the local Native American village, and the scientific concerns of Marshall and his team, the "docudrama" plows ahead...until the scientists make one more horrifying discovery. The beast is no regular specimen; it may be an ancient killing machine. And they may be premature in believing it dead.

In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many.

Good read

Would you consider the audio edition of Terminal Freeze to be better than the print version?

I have not read the printed version. We listen to the books in the car normally on long trips and therefore it can take us a month or 2 to lister to a complete book.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was gripping and interesting with a good twist at the end.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The traveling over the ice lake and the image of the sounds made by the ice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No.

Scott Brick great, book not so great,

My 2nd Lincoln Child book. Don't think I'll get any more. Not really to my taste. Starts off well and then story goes a bit silly. Scott Brick performs well though.

A little bit boring in parts

When the story gets going it gets better, however overall there are so many better books out there.
