Overview

Unspoiled. Uninhabited. Under attack...

On the wind-swept, Ice-covered continent of Antartica, Roger Gordian's UpLink Technologies has established a scientific research facility called Cold Corners. But its testing of potential robotic landing craft for use on Mars is disrupted when one of the rovers disappears — along with the repair team sent out after it.

Fear of discovery has prompted a renegade consortium — that is illegally using Antartica as a nuclear waste dump — to wipe out the UpLink base. Now, the men and women of Cold Corners have only themselves to rely on as the consortium mounts its decisive strike against the ice station — and the final sunset plunges them into the total darkness of a polar winter.

Meet the Author

Tom Clancy is the New York Times #1 bestselling author of the extraordinary new Jack Ryan novel, The Bear and the Dragon.

Fifteen years ago, Tom Clancy was an insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Decades earlier, he had dreamed of writing a novel. In 1984, his first effort, The Hunt for Red October -- about a Russian submarine captain who defects, along with his sub, to the United States -- catapulted onto the New York Times best-seller list after U.S. President Reagan pronounced it "non-put-downable." Clancy, who originated the literary genre known as the techo-thriller, has since established himself as a master at building realistic fictional scenarios by "turning up the volume" on current events.

His follow-up novel, Red Storm Rising, provided a realistic scenario arising from a Soviet attack on NATO. Other bestsellers followed: The Hunt for Red October, Red Storm Rising, Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, Without Remorse, Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, and Rainbow Six. He has also co-authored Every Man a Tiger with General Chuck Horner, Into the Storm: A Study in Command, with General Fred Franks, Jr. (Ret.), and Submarine, Carrier, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, Marine, and Airborne; and he is a co-creator of the Op-Center, Power Plays, and Net Force series. He lives in Maryland.

The walls of Clancy's office are lined with war games, books on weapons, and government-produced maps, all tributes to his lifelong fascination with technology and the military. The success of his books has resulted in his "adoption" by the military. He is regularly welcomed aboard jets, submarines, and destroyers. Admirals and generals give him access, Pentagon officials debrief him, and many of his books are required reading at our nation's military colleges.

It is this access to a wide variety of sources and information within military and intelligence circles that sets Clancy apart. Although he scoffs at the idea that he has ever breached government security in his books, Clancy does admit that he has been able to tap into what he calls "The Great Chain" -- a network of intelligence officers and operatives, military men, defense contractors, and government employees who feed him information.

    Cold Bore

    Loved it because it's set in Antarctica but the Scottish detective story drama & art forgery drama were meaningless. Typical of the Power PLays series to focus on subplots and minor characters while ignoring the major plot & characters. Otherwise, a great series. Bring back P.PLays master villian, Harlan DeVane! Oh, did I mention I love Antarctica? It's one place unspoiled by man and not owned by Trump!

    Very dissapointing book. Descriptive narratives are far too long and in some cases compeletely irrelevant. Action sequence involving snowmobiles (snowbikes?) contains very unusual terminology and technical flaws. Very unlike a Clancy novel. Clancy should be more careful of what he puts his name on. He should not be associated with this book.
