Overview

Coined by early explorers as the Atlantis of the North, the Arctic is a desolate, intense land colder than even Antarctica. Anthropologist Kate Foster accepts a job at an isolated research facility on a remote island surrounded by a vast ocean of crushing Pack Ice. Her scientific expedition becomes a mission of survival when she is joined by Detective Jack Decker with the Alaska Bureau of Investigations. Kate and Decker's team of criminologists race against time to solve the gruesome and multiple homicides of her colleagues while someone, or something (thought to be extinct), is hunting them.

Editorial Reviews

Ryan Chidester
Jack Castle's newest book, White Death is full of suspense and action. It takes the reader on a wonderfully frightening expedition in the Arctic. The book starts off with a Jaws type feel to it, (A group of people being hunted by a mysterious predator on the ice), which is exactly what I was hoping for. Just when you think the hunted expedition members might make it out alive the author surprises us again with a right turn right into a political espionage thriller worthy of Clive Cussler.

An Arctic research facility is attacked and there are no survivors among the scientist that were there. Coming to assist them, Dr. Kate Foster, joins the detectives on their way to the island where the research is taking place. The researches are looking for evidence of an ancient culture and no one understands why they would be killed doing their work. But the detectives and Kate discover that maybe they were killed by other humans, but maybe by some large creature. The group is trapped on the island and they begin to lose members to something. They decide they must go to the dig site to see if they can find answers and that is where they find a group of mercenaries who have been sent to steal the artifacts that have been found. Kate and Detective James Decker find themselves in a fight for their lives in the frozen north. I found the book to be interesting and full of action. Castle, having worked and lived in Alaska gives excellent descriptions of what life is like there. I hope that James and Kate come back in a sequel to keep up the search for the ancient peoples. (
