At 65 degrees below zero, exposed human flesh freezes solid within three minutes.
Retired Marine Master Sergeant Marcus Johnson returned to his family homestead in rural Alaska after 20 years chasing bad men. Now he wants nothing but to hunt and fish and run his trapline in peace and quiet, and no more war.
Meanwhile, lurking deep in a long forgotten bunker in the remote arctic hills is a decades-old secret that could not be destroyed, and was never meant to be rediscovered.

"Sands is fearless in his storytelling, and tireless in his quest to connect directly with his audience. Big Publishing? Watch out for this guy." (Scott Sigler, New York Times best-selling author of Infected, Contagious, and Ancestor)
"Basil Sands is one awesome writer, penning stories pumped with enough adrenaline that you'll suffer from insomnia until you read the last word. This is one writer not to be missed." (Jeremy Robinson, author of Pulse and Instinct)
I was a bit leery about buying this one but am sure glad I did. The narrator is the author himself, which I usually find to not work, In this case he was perfect for the book. Like any book, it had a couple weak spots but overall was a real page turner. It was very fast moving, and even the flashbacks worked fine without distracting from the main story. I highly recommend this one and am looking forward to hearing more from this author.
Having lived in Alaska for 25 years I found this book to be using for the most part realistic facts about Alaska. The story line is interesting and keeps youi coming back for more. The author does an excellent job of inter weaving the military with the State police. Well worth the listen.
Here is a sentence from the author's description of the female protagonist:
"Beneath her breasts, was the rest of her body."
. . .that should be warning enough.
