The most dangerous place on Earth
A devious and deadly plan to save humanity from itself
A lone scientist battling the clock and ruthless enemies to avert
"The Deep Zone" was hailed as "an absolutely phenomenal read by
the new Michael Crichton" (Brad Thor), a book that "should come
shrink-wrapped with a seat belt" (Steve Berry). Now, bestselling
author James M. Tabor ups the ante and the action in his second
extreme thriller, as brilliant and battle-tested heroine Hallie
Leland confronts intrigue and murder in the most unforgiving place
The South Pole's Amundsen Scott Research Station is like an
outpost on Mars. Winter temperatures average 100 degrees below
zero; week-long hurricane-force storms rage; for eight months at a
time the station is shrouded in darkness. Under the stress, bodies
suffer and minds twist. Panic, paranoia, and hostility prevail.
When a South Pole scientist dies mysteriously, CDC microbiologist
Hallie Leland arrives to complete crucial research. Before she can
begin, three more women inexplicably die. As failing communications
and plunging temperatures cut the station off from the outside
world, terror rises and tensions soar. Amidst it all, Hallie must
crack the mystery of her predecessor's death.
In Washington, D.C., government agency director Don Barnard and
enigmatic operative Wil Bowman detect troubling signs of shadowy
behavior at the South Pole and realize that Hallie is at the heart
of it. Unless Barnard and Bowman can track down the mastermind, a
horrifying act of global terror, launched from the station, will
change the planet forever--and Hallie herself will be the unwitting
instrument of destruction.
As the Antarctic winter sweeps in, severing contact with the
outside world, Hallie must trust no one, fear everyone, and fight
to keep the frigid prison from becoming her frozen grave.
