The sense of realism and attention to detail was literally frightening. After reading, I felt as though I'd actually returned from a murder investigation in the Arctic! I always appreciate the 'fun facts' I learn from Mr. Castle's books. For example, trans-Arctic sailing routes and scientific discoveries of landmasses and artifacts that haven't been seen in over ten thousand years!
Thanks Jack for yet another fun read!!!
White Death is set in the Arctic where it appears there is a blood thirsty prehistoric creature still lurking about. Or is there? Of course there is the prerequisite mega storm to rachet up the suspense, trapping our main characters in a remote scientific outpost as they investigate why the team of scientist who had been stationed there before had all been brutally murdered. I love the way prehistoric archeology is blended into this story, and the premise is based on actual theories. The continued near brushes with death are not believable, no one has that kind of luck, but I didn't care. I was quite happy to suspend belief as I got caught up in this page turner.
Jack Castle is a very good writer. He makes you care about the characters, whether you like them or not. If you enjoy suspense stories set in the frozen extremities of our world, I urge you to give this one a try. My one "complaint" is that it's too short at 200 pages. The ending is an obvious set up for a sequel, which I normally hate, but it is nonetheless a satisfying and unambiguous ending. I always avoid books with cliffhangers or WTH endings, but this didn't frustrate me in the least. It just made me happy to think the adventure might continue in the future.
If you are looking for a quick, exciting read and an armchair adventure, give this book a try. I'm so glad I did and, in the process, have discovered a new author I really love.
