Beneath the Dark Ice is a novel that takes place in Antarctica. The suspense makes this one hard to put down. There's a lot going on — rescuing previous search parties, prospecting for oil, fighting off rival teams, and the monster from the past that begins to relentlessly stalk all the human food it can find.
Beck has imagination enough for two authors. This book starts off at a sprint and keeps running full speed all the way to the end. A plane crashes in the Antarctic and instead of hitting snow and ice it plows right through the roof of a cave. It's what's in that cave that makes this story. The first rescue party completely disappears. The second is in a race for their lives. Very highly recommended.
