Not only a cold war but a cold story with even colder characters. This novel, thought up by Tom Clancy but written by Jerome Preisler left me even colder. A world power communication company called UP LINK maintains a base on Antarctica where they are testing a rover style device for future Mars exploration but it mysteriously disappears, along with members of the testing crew, and the adventure begins. A mysterious European oligarch, who is also undoubtedly the penultimate art connoisseur of al ...more

This is an interesting story of action, adventure and mayhem on the cold and lonely Antarctic continent. The tale begins with the disappearance of an experimental Mars rover and its research team. The narrative then takes the reader around the world as we try to find out who and what is behind this drama. Who lives and who dies, and will come out on top, is a question everyone is struggling to find out. So, put on a warm coat, grab your gun and hope that the weather does not kill you before the ...more

At the sentence and paragraph level, even the chapter level, the book is well enough written. The ending is curiously incomplete and readers who expect all threads to be wound up and all characters fully accounted-for at the end of a book may be a little disappointed. All in all it's about as convincing as any other thriller being written these days.

One of my least favourite Clancy novels. The two plots didn't seem to come together, or least in a logical fashion. Glad this book is finally done.

An amusing fiction story with a heavy sprinkling of intrigue and a healthy dash of action. =)

Enjoyed learning about working in the antarctica, about classic paintings, forgeries, uranium, etc etc.....lots of interesting things covered.

Good, fast read. Fairly well-written. The pages of science and tech facts make for some tedious reading, but the interesting characters and storyline help make up for it.

Uranium mining, spent uranium disposal, Picasso paintings, Antarctica landscapes and a few murders thrown in for good measure.
Clancy does not live upto his reputation.

I wish it was better. This really turned me off of reading just anything written under Clancy's name.
