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.

a gourment meal for us lovers of horror fiction

Lincoln Child always delivers. A great story taking place in an arctic environment, which always adds gothic overtones, you can't beat that.
The Reader is excellent, too.
I listened to it overnight in less than 20 hours. In the wee hours, I had to turn it off because when you get sleepy you start to miss the story. So I turned it off, even though I did not have the will to, by myself. I think it was about 4am.
If you are a horror fan, or a fan of Douglas Preston and Child's "Penderghast" stories, you will love this one, too.
Audible has a good number of their audiobooks. Unfortunately a good number of them are 'abridged', which I will not buy. No one should buy abridged audiobooks. Why only get 'parts and pieces of the story?

Like it better than most of these reviews

I agree that is a redo of the monster/arctic outpost story, I enjoyed it. It's completely different than the Pendergast series. I don't think an author HAS to write all the same types of stories. As usual, Scott Brick does his usual excellent job. Although I don't think this is one of Child's best, I did enjoy it and am glad I bought it.

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.
