A team of scientists is given the opportunity to study the effects of the acceleration of global warming at the foot of a rapidly retreating glacier located near Mt Fear in Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, the site of a mothballed but still functional military base originally used as part of the DEW line system during the height of the cold war with Russia. This particular group of eager scientists, like virtually every other scientist in today's "now" oriented, results-focused world, is …

Paleoecologist Evan Marshall is part of a scientific team studying the effects of global warming in Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone. Exploring an ice cave, the team discovers a mysterious animal frozen in ice. When their sponsor, a media conglomerate, learns of this, they send a film crew to the Zone to film a documentary about the unthawing of the animal.

Once before I tried to read a book authored by Lincoln Child. Within a few pages, I had set it aside.     Setting it aside was my first reaction after a few pages of "Terminal Freeze". The writing isn't very good and the characters right from the start were all stereotypes. From the beginning the plot lacked any kind of credibility, even for science fiction. I persisted, but on page 199, the plot collapsed of its own weight when the hero dashes off into a blizzard without a moment's …

This is my first Lincoln Child book and I almost didn't read it because a lot of the other reviews said that it didn't have a lot of action and it wasn't his best work.
