A team of climatologists are sent on a routine expedition to Antarctica to investigate a rapidly melting glacier, where they make a startling discovery.... In Europe, a secret Nazi document surfaces which points to a historical government secret, and which appears connected to events unfolding in Antarctica. Robert Spire, tasked to hunt for the secret document, soon becomes the hunted, as he is chased across Europe in this fast-paced action thriller. Spire soon discovers that sinister forces are at work. Forces that will do all they can to protect the secret that lies buried beneath the Antarctic ice....
In 1938, the German New Swabia Expedition left Hamburg for Antarctica aboard the MS Schwabenland. The secret expedition arrived at the Princess Martha Coast, in an area which had been claimed by Norway as Dronning Maud Land, and began charting the region...75 years later, satellite photographs discover something very odd occurring in Eastern Antarctica....
Rapid Antarctic ice melt....
Just before Europe's Envisat satellite malfunctions, it photographs a mysterious melt zone during a fly-over of Eastern Antarctica. After analyzing the photographs, the UK's GLENCOM - Global Environmental Command - Unit, sends three of its climatologists to investigate, but as they search the site, a vast crevasse opens in the ice, swallowing them up. They survive the fall, but make a startling and lethal discovery.

As Spire suspects a possible government conspiracy, things take a sinister turn, as clues lead him to the discovery of a 70-year-old Nazi document and an Antarctic mystery that may have lasted for 70 years.

A smorgasbord of concepts
I enjoyed some of the concepts ( Nazi's in Antartica, etc.) Some of the concepts were a scientific and suspension of disbelief stretch, but on balance it was a decent offering.
One of my first listens to his work. It was workmanlike, but sometimes inconsistent and over the top. Not bad, not outstanding.
I received my copy from the author in exchange for this fair and uninfluenced review. Thank you Audioblast.
This is a reasonable offering, with some interesting ideas and a passable performance. Likely worth the credit, but you really need to be into the concepts it covers to want to spend the it. Recommended with those conditions.
