K Smith | 2 comments This was a science-fiction/adventure book published in probably 1980-1983. The main character was a former military man/soldier of fortune pushed by the government to work with a beautiful female scientist to investigate why strange things were happening all around the world. I'm vague on why they got thrown together. The book literally crisscrosses the globe. However, the climax of the book ends in a secret underground alien base in Antarctica. There is a big battle in this base. And, the hero saves the day by flying one of the alien crafts out of the base.

It could possibly have been the start of a series. I remember that the cover was black with some red artwork on it. Obviously it left an impression and I'd like to read it again, unfortunately I lent it to a friend in 1984 who never returned it.

The main character was a manly action writer, and the woman was his ex who was investigating the paranormal, but they did get involved with a government investigation.
