Prison Of Ice
W H Allen, 1976, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First Edition. 'This is the stuff of which nightmares are made ... a thriller supercharged with excitement. The crisis : a world-wide drought. The possible solution : giant chunks of Arctic ice, split from the pack by high explosives and towed to northern ports to be melted for water. An international group of eight scientists have planted sixty powerful bombs deep in Arctic ice to study the effects of the explosions. But before they can withdraw to safety, a shattering tidal wave breaks the ice on which they are working away from the main mass, setting it drift. Cut off from rescue by fierce storms, threatened by cold, by hunger, and by a homicidal maniac in their midst, the scientists count the minutes until midnight when the bombs will detonate and their prison of ice will become a frozen coffin. Help, when it does arrive, comes from a surprising quarter : the commander of a Russian spy submarine. But help is not rescue, and the outcome is in doubt until the last second ticks off the bombs' detonator in a novel that pits man against man, against time, and against the unforgiving elements.'
