Antarctica is the coldest, most isolated place on earth. Luke Searle, maverick glaciologist, has made it his home. But soon his survival skills will be tested to the limit by a ruthless mercenary who must win at any cost.
The white continent is under attack. The Australian team is being hunted down. Can Luke stay alive long enough to raise the alarm?
The countdown has begun. T minus 5 days, 2 hours and 53 minutes …
THIRST is about climate change catastrophe. We all know about the effects of global warming and the impact on the polar caps and the glaciers in them. But what if someone decided to harvest the resources in Antarctica, like the rare minerals, and even the water?
This is a fast paced thriller, firmly based on solid research, presenting a scenario that strains the bounds of credibility at first.
My rating: 4.5
