Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world...
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child.

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologist Evan Marshall and a small group of fellow scientists, an expedition to the Zone represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the effects of global warming.

Everything about the expedition changes, however, with an astonishing find. On a routine exploration of a glacial ice cave, the group discovers an enormous ancient animal, encased in solid ice. The media conglomerate sponsoring their research immediately intervenes and arranges the ultimate spectacle: the creature will be cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed live on television. Despite dire warnings from the local Native American village, and the scientific concerns of Marshall and his team, the "docudrama" plows ahead...until the scientists make one more horrifying discovery. The beast is no regular specimen; it may be an ancient killing machine. And they may be premature in believing it dead.

In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many.

    "Suspense, Horror and Supernatural"

    When the science team at Fear Base makes an unlikely discovery, a documentary crew descends upon them, changing both their routine and the overall objective of the mission. When the discovery, renamed by the film director as "the asset" disappears, everyone's focus turns to survival. Except for the director who is intent on filming the horror as it occurs. Once "the asset" begins to hunt people, the action picks up. When it is determined who and what is being hunted, the mystery of book is abandoned by the author. If you are a listener who wants to be really scared by a story, this book won't get you there. If you like a really complex mystery, this book won't do it for you, either. The spiritual/supernatural aspect of the story is very small, so if you have that kind of interest, this book will not satisfy. It attempts, but falls just short. Character development is weak. The listener will find it difficult to identify with anyone, although it is easy to dislike the film director, Conti. Nevertheless, Child is a good writer. The plot moves along and isn't difficult to follow. Most listeners would find it easy to finish the book and simply say it isn't Child's best work. It's just okay.

    "Great Listen!"

    This was my first audio book and I enjoyed every minute of it. I work part time cleaning houses and I joined audible so I could "read" books while I am working. This story captured my attention from the beginning and made my house cleaning jobs go by much faster. The suspense and surprises kept me listening for hours at a time. I even listened to it after my daughter went to bed because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.

    "Simple and Predictable"

    Such a disappointment from Lincoln Child. Lame characters who never bring you to care about what happens to them- except to wish the "Monster" would do away with them all! There is no suspense, no terror, no original story line-----don't waste your credit!

    "So wrong......."

    What happened here? When trying to mix science and discovery with ancient beliefs, something gets lost in translation sometimes....a plausible story....so disappointed in this one

    "Yawn!"

    The book gets better in the second half. In the first book I kept falling asleep. Too long in the tooth. I don't want to marry the charter just read about him. (Get the point?)
