On his website, author Greig Beck writes that he grew up reading Wells, Burroughs, and other classic writers; it shows in his first book, where he takes elements of the technothriller - gadgets and guns and the guys who use them - throws in the Antarctic, and then mixes it with heavy doses of big man-eating monsters and ancient mysteries. This is a neat adventure with neat ideas and a handful of exciting scenes. It's also short and to the point. I had fun.
