Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die. A frightening truth is about to unfold: The men and women of the Rolvaag are not taking this ancient, enigmatic object anywhere. It is taking them.

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.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. Preston's acclaimed nonfiction book, The Monster of Florence, is being made into a movie starring George Clooney. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.

Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
