Publisher's Summary

Sam Cleave, reporter for a small newspaper, has seen better days. After his partner was killed during an undercover investigation, he lost his passion for work and living.
But when a resident of a nearby assisted living home is tortured and murdered in a barbaric manner, he starts investigating. He is especially intrigued when a mysterious box is given to him that belonged to the dead man, but he needs help to interpret what it means.
He teams up with Nina Gould, an expert in World War II history. Soon the two of them realize that they are about to discover one of the best-guarded secrets of the war. It dawns on them that this would be the discovery of a lifetime, a discovery of immeasurable value, and a discovery that men would kill for. They join an expedition, sponsored by an eccentric billionaire, hunting for gold and breathtaking art buried deep below the Antarctic surface. Instead of gold and stolen art, they find something terrifyingly disturbing beneath the eternal ice.
A team of Nazi scientists has made an amazing discovery. But experiments have gone terribly wrong. The situation gets out of hand, and before long the expedition members find themselves peering into the deepest recesses of the human soul. Nina and Sam realize that their only hope for survival is to unlock the secrets of Ice Station Wolfenstein.

Awful and amateurish Writing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This prose is beyond redemption

What was most disappointing about Preston Child’s story?

Poorly written - an 8th grader could have done better.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He did an ok job considering the material he had to work with.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Don't waste your credit.

Mediocre story, worse narration.

Feel foolish having this was by Preston AND Child. Amateurish writing, simplistic story, and distracting narration. I couldn't tell if mispronounced words were just the reader's fault or if the author used the wrong words. Exuberant instead of exorbitant? Just one example of misuse that took me right out of the story repeatedly. Worst accents I've heard in audio books, ever.

Um .... no

Genuinely thought with the fantastic world of Pendergast in his belt this book would hold huge potential.
It’s not great.
It reads like a straight to TV movie.
The narrator has just one accent he does well and the rest are cheesy.
When not in character his rendition is wooden and uninspired.
I’m really disappointed.

A good story with a lot of names and ideas people will relate to

It took me a while to get on with the narrator. He seemed to be trying to hard but after a couple of chapters it got better (or i stopped noticing) enjoyed the book and its references to real American army projects and other similar ideas.
