    Story

    When a plane crashes into the Antarctic ice, exposing a massive cave beneath, a rescue and research team is dispatched. Twenty-four hours later, all contact is lost. Captain Alex Hunter and his highly trained squad of commandos are fast tracked to the hot zone to find out what went wrong - and to follow up the detection of a vast underground reservoir.

    Bob says: "A fun and interesting read."
    "Waste of a Credit and Time"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Greig Beck and/or Sean Mangan?

    I expect books like this to be improbable and have no problem with that. However, about 80% of this one ranges from ridiculous to impossible. The characters include a caricature of an arrogant scientist, a bunch of special operations soldiers that seem to be slightly less competent than Gomer Pyle and a main hero who can do everything short of leaping tall buildings in a single bound. The instances that the author violates the laws of physics and the other sciences are too numerous to count.

    Save your credit and spend your time on better books. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dead Eye by Mark Greaney.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator did an acceptable but not super job given the drivel he had to read.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beneath the Dark Ice?

    Pretty much all of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be seeking a refund for this one.
