Summary

The arctic night is endless. The fear is numbing. Screams freeze in the throat. Death arrives in shades of white. And cold-blooded murder seems right at home.

Conducting a strange and urgent experiment on the Arctic icefield, a team of scientists has planted sixty powerful explosive charges that will detonate at midnight. Before they can withdraw to the safety of their base camp, a shattering tidal wave breaks loose the ice on which they are working. Now they are hopelessly marooned on an iceberg during a violent winter storm. The bombs beneath them are buried irretrievably deep...and ticking. And they discover that one of them is an assassin with a mission of his own.

Better narrator needed

Narrator was too monotone...no change in tone at all. Also needs to work on accents/voice changes to indicate change of character.

I am cold thinking about it

A real eye opener to the Artic and how difficult it is to survive.
Intense story about scientist needing to be rescued from continual mishaps.
They have a crazed killer amongst them, and you're not going to believe who it is.

Was slow and not narrated well

Narrator spoke with one voice and put no inflection into different characters. Made the listen slow and uninteresting.

Dull

This is the first book by Koontz that I have found boring and predictable. The narration is flat and easily puts you into a malaze where the mind wanders and sleep comes easily.

Unusually Dull Koontz

This is one of the few Koontz books I did not care for.
It was a bit bland, with weak characters, and an odd adventure story-line with minimal interesting twists.
Usually Koontz has a writing flare that is almost entirely lacking here.

The narration is only passable.
