Publisher Comments:

A massive meteorite is discovered in Chile. A New York billionaire decides he must have it, setting off the most expensive, and secretive, salvage mission ever mounted. When a raging storm drives the expedition's tanker beyond the dangerous Antarctic latitude known as the Ice Limit, superstition, egos, and the unknown clash, risking the lives of everyone on board.

Synopsis:

The bestselling authors of "Riptide" and "Thunderhead" deliver an adventure-packed thriller of an expedition to the site of a meteorite in southernmost Chile. And when a ranging storm drives the tanker ship beyond the dangerous Antarctic latitude known as the Ice Limit, superstition, egos, and the unknown clash to create a stunning finale that will risk the lives of everyone on board.

Synopsis:

In the desolate reaches of southern-most Chile, a remarkable discovery has been made. It is a massive meteorite whose very existence will change science and perhaps mankind. When an expedition is sent out strange things start to happen.

Synopsis:

In the desolate reaches of southernmost Chile lies the Tierra del Fuego, the "Land of Fire", and on an island off the coast lies something else altogether — a newly discovered 4,000-ton meteorite. Advances in modern engineering have enabled a rich tycoon to mount the transport of the priceless artifact to his New York museum, but the crew will first have to reckon with the daunting challenges of a raging storm at sea, foreboding superstition, and colliding egos as the expedition slowly moves northward.
