really liked it

Moss creates a tense, suspenseful novel in Cold Earth with threats both outside the immediate world of her characters and in the increasingly cold and increasingly eerie archaeological dig in Greenland where the book takes place.

Each character gets a turn telling the story through their final letters home, and while they're not all likable, they're all believable and very much alive. Definitely a page turner, the reader is compelled to finish in one giant gulp, although the narrative construction makes it possible to put the book down for bed. But who would want to? In the end, Moss manages to masterfully resolve the suspense while not dulling its edge with too many details.
