If Hell was cold, it would be here. An Anglo-American expedition is making s glaciological survey during the slow, biting winter months- eight men and a woman working in harmony against the elements, measuring the secrets of the ice.And then, from the belly of the glacier comes sudden disaster.

And the work of the expedition becomes a fight for survival in terrifying conditions, facing not only the Arctic, but a madness in the team itself. This is their story - one of death, ferocity, terror, and endurance.FORREST WEBB shows himself to be fine writing talent. In the true tradition of adventure writers such as Hammond Innes and Alistair Maclean he draws from situations of bitter conflict - man against nature, man against man - the most powerful and compelling sensations of suspense and excitement.
