BEYOND THE ICE LIMIT
That thing is growing again. We must destroy it. The time
to act is now...
With these words begins Gideon Crew's latest, most
dangerous, most high-stakes assignment yet. Failure will
mean nothing short of the end of humankind on earth.
Five years ago, the mysterious and inscrutable head of
Effective Engineering Solutions, Eli Glinn, led a mission to
recover a gigantic meteorite--the largest ever
discovered--from a remote island off the coast of South
America. The mission ended in disaster when their ship, the
Rolvaag, foundered in a vicious storm in the Antarctic
waters and broke apart, sinking-along with its unique
cargo-to the ocean floor. One hundred and eight crew members
perished, and Eli Glinn was left paralyzed.
But this was not all. The tragedy revealed something truly
terrifying: the meteorite they tried to retrieve was not, in
fact, simply a rock. Instead, it was a complex organism from
the deep reaches of space.
Now, that organism has implanted itself in the sea bed two
miles below the surface-and it is growing. If it is not
destroyed, the planet will be doomed. There is only one
hope: for Glinn and his team to annihilate it, a task which
requires Gideon's expertise with nuclear weapons. But as
Gideon and his colleagues soon discover, the "meteorite" has
a mind of its own-and it has no intention of going quietly...
