Beneath the Ice is a novel of intrigue in Antarctica. I would say suspense, but that would be lying.
The story continues the saga of brave world explorer Perry Sachs as he travels to Antarctica with his team to unearth something mysterious emerging beneath the ice. As usual, someone wants it for themselves and the enemy is not a mystery.
The book holds your attention up until the end, but it almost lets you down. The idea of a secret group that wants the artifact is nothing new; neither is the scene about almost getting blown away by C-4.
As usual, the characters are bland, especially perfect Perry, who can do no wrong. At least there was no unnecessary romantic subplot. All in all, this book is interesting enough. Probably enough to warrant a read.
