Publisher's Summary

The South Pole’s Amundsen Scott Research Station is like an outpost on Mars. Winter temperatures average 100 degrees below zero; weeklong hurricane-force storms rage; for eight months at a time the station is shrouded in darkness. Under the stress, bodies suffer and minds twist. Panic, paranoia, and hostility prevail.
When a South Pole scientist dies mysteriously, Hallie arrives to complete crucial research. Before she can begin, three more women inexplicably die. As failing communications and plunging temperatures cut the station off from the outside world, terror rises and tensions soar. Amid it all, Hallie must crack the mystery of her predecessor’s death.
In Washington, D.C., Don Barnard, director of a top secret government agency, detects deeply troubling signs of shadowy behavior at the South Pole - and realizes he may have sent Hallie right into the thick of it. Soon, a horrifying act of global terror, launched from the station, will change the planet forever - and Hallie herself will be the unwitting instrument of destruction.
As the Antarctic winter sweeps in, severing contact with the outside world, Hallie must trust no one, fear everyone, and fight to keep the frigid prison from becoming her frozen grave.

Just Couldn't Get Into The Story

I had high hopes for this what seemed to be an interesting story. I quit about 2/3'rds through when I realized I had no idea which character was which. Also realized that I could care less whether I returned to the book or not. It just couldn't hold my interest. All of the characters (except Hallie) seem to run together. Even the names of some are similar. The story seemed to drag and I was lost in the technical/scientific descriptions. Also, when I bought the book, I didn't realize that this was the second book for the main character, Hallie. That might explain why I felt that there was a lot missing regarding her character. I personally wouldn't recommend the book.
