Halfway there, a chasm opens in the ice, swallowing Harry’s snowmobile and their drill. This was classified as horror but to me it seemed like more of an adventure book ala Clive Cussler. And cold-blooded murder seems right at home. The whole thing unfolds with the timing of a quartz watch. I love submarine adventures and to me, this numbers with the best of them.
Before they can withdraw to the safety of their base camp, a shattering tidal wave breaks loose the ice on which they are working. Aug 05, Wendy rated it really liked it.

Detailed Review Summary of Icebound by Dean Koontz
Customers who bought this item also bought. This is strictly a techno-thriller. Jul 31, Pages. I love how he makes all the characters I’ve read, so far, so human. I had accepted that Mother Nature was to be the only “bad guy” and then the Russians appeared and I thought for sure they’d play the role of the bad guy.
I enjoyed it,even though it is a little different than his other books. Death arrives in shades of white.

But even knowing one of them was desirous of Brian’s death, I was totally wrong in my opinion as to who the potential killer was until the moment he struck again. If you are going to read any of his books this is as good as it gets.
It is definitely different than his usual style and there are no crazy supernatural type of creatures as is his norm, but good all the same. I have read Strangers and Phantoms as well, both of which could have been good if they were written by someone else.
I hate Dean Koontz. A different Koonz book written under a pen name. This section was extremely emotional and intense, contemplating the choices we make in life.

The story follows the experiences of a group of Arctic explorers who are on a koojtz to blast off an iceberg from the ice cap but unfortunately get trapped on ice when a tsunami occurs. Look forward to reading more of his work sometime.
