I loved it! Deception Island is exciting, constantly moving right from the first page. As a five-time visitor to Antarctica the vivid descriptions of Antarctica and Deception Island in the novel bring back fond memories.

Format: Paperback
I read Deception Island on some of the hottest days of the summer. What a wonderful retreat. The scenes were so vivid and the landscape so beautifully rendered that I actually started to feel chilly! The story was about far more than Antarctica, there were Nazis, bioterrorists, genetic experiments, and bodies that were not quite human. It was a great read that made me want to book the next cruise to Antarctica to learn what's really going on down in that white wilderness.

Deception Island combines elements of several kinds of genre literature: adventure, mystery, romance, and science fiction. It features very memorable major and minor characters and a plot that packs a wallop, particularly at the beginning and in the second half of the book. It is a "quick read" of a book with very detailed descriptions of life in Antarctica. It would also make a good movie.

I was engrossed from the start in this book's story. It was fast paced and had some real surprises. I look forward to more books written by the author.
