North Slopeby Michael Parker
North Slope is a barren desert of ice in Alaska that stretches from the Brooks Mountains to the Beaufort Sea, frozen during the winter clear to the North Pole. It is in this wilderness that the Fyffe Oil Company struggles in its search for oil. Time and money are running out; a man has been killed on the rig; suspicion and fear are rampant.

This is one of the BEST books I've read in a long time. Exciting, with twist and turns and you'll never know who to trust. I couldn't put it down. Well written with a great story line. Excellent characters. Story takes place in the frigid arctic - you'll feel like you are really there. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy a great read. I will be reading more of Michael Parkers books.
Described in the Financial Times as a "Gifted Narrator", Michael Parker takes his readers into the ice cold world of the Arctic where a ruthless killer stalks the oil camp of financially crippled oil Company, Fyffe Oil. In a chilling race against time, the only outfit left drilling in the icy desert wastes of the North Slope struggle to overcome tempestuous storms, fire and murder. The chief driller, McKinnon, dragged from the desperate world of alchohol, is the only man with the will to overcome these odds. In a challenging, well researched story, Michael Parker leaves the reader breathless and chilled with the race to strike oil at an almost unattainable depth, where the world's leading oil Companies have failed. The technical background to this novel is based on true events and leaves the reader in no doubt that man's toughest challenges are always in the most extreme places.
