Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A grim, cold tale of Antarctic exploration, of a hidden fresh water lake thousands of feet below the ice, unfrozen, and a bunch of scientists trying to discover what it contains. Winter is closing in and they only have a tiny window to get their samples out. They are attacked by a Yeti-type creature and so the race against time begins. This is pure escapist, boys’-own adventure and good fun.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Two kilometres under the frozen ice caps of Antarctica lies a secret place, undiscovered for a million years: a lake frozen and perfectly preserved. MI6 officer Kieran Bates assigns Luca Matthews to head up a team of scientists to investigate this long-lost, forgotten realm. But the MI6 man has a secret of his own, and a hidden agenda. When mining investigator ‘Bear’ Makuru finds herself unable to reach Luca, she investigates – and finds something very disturbing indeed. This is a lively and atmospheric thriller with that ineluctable page-turning quality.

Synopsis

Beneath the Ice by Patrick Woodhead

This is the brand new gripping thriller from the author of The Secret Chamber. Two kilometres beneath the frozen icecaps of Antarctica lies a lake, unfrozen and perfectly preserved for twenty million years. Luca Matthews has been tasked by MI6 officer, Kieran Bates, to lead a team of scientists to the site to discover what secrets lie trapped below. But Bates has a secret of his own, and his actions are not going unnoticed. When mining investigator 'Bear' Makuru cannot reach Luca, she starts to dig into Bates' past - uncovering a plot more sinister than she could ever have imagined. Bear needs to warn Luca and fast. But there is an even greater threat tracking Luca across the frozen landscape: a killer who has been waiting through the long, dark months for a single chance to strike. Luca has only eight days to work out who he can trust. Antarctica is shutting down for the winter and if he doesn't get out now, he never will.
