Fueled by Lloyd's money, an audacious expedition takes shape. Disguising a state-of-the-art ship as a rusted freighter, the expedition secretly heads southward with a fail-safe plan to steal the meteorite from Chile. Leading the group is an inscrutable engineer hired by Lloyd, and a world-famous meteorite hunter whose career was shattered by a controversial theory.
Soon, along the icy rim of Antarctica, in the grip of a frozen hell, the adventurers are confronted with a terrifying enigma about the origin-and nature-of the meteorite. It is a mystery they must solve-if they are to escape with their very lives.

**NOTE TO FELLOW READERS**
As you can tell this book does not have the basic "chapter" whatever stated. Instead, it's got different places and dates, so you can keep up with the book. For me, that bothered me just because I like to know how many chapters there are, and how many days I can actually finish the book. The book does have 87 chapters. And yes, some are shorter then others, but still. 87, chapters. Other then that, the book was alright. Could have been a bit better.
