Publisher's Summary

A classic thriller from the best-selling master of action and suspense.

The atomic submarine Dolphin has impossible orders: to sail beneath the ice floes of the Arctic Ocean to locate and rescue the men of weather station Zebra, gutted by fire and drifting with the ice pack somewhere north of the Arctic Circle.

But the orders do not say what the Dolphin will find if she succeeds - that the fire at Ice Station Zebra was sabotage and that one of the survivors is a killer....

    "Not the Movie, but still good"

    If you have seen the movie then the story here is similar for the first third to half of it, but it changes afterward. In fact the book is less cold war spy thriller ala the movie, but more arctic murder mystery.

    The story is generally good, varied and interesting with a few moments that Macleans just about gets away with. There are some errors, for instance the mannicker schoenhower one (they never made pistols), but in general it is a good listen and worthy of a credit.

    Where most of the recently release Maclean books fall down, is in the narration. Jonathan Oliver is ok and just about bearable in this one, unlike the Guns of Navarrone and Where Eagles Dare. He does better with the normal narration here, but he struggles to maintain the American accent, and I am not convinced with the irish and scottish ones. Some times he is good, sometimes it hurts my ears, which leads to a mixed response on my part.

    "Amazingly gripping..."

    This was a very exciting story with excellent narration. The audio was much better than the film, as the story was stronger and more believable.

    "not to be mistaken ..."

    ... with the movie. They share a name but little else. This chills far more tension and suspense, I highly recommend
