At last in Antarctica, Gabe Hunter and his team of research students go about their work to gather ice cores when, suddenly, they are confronted by the appearance of a massive ice crevasse. This is no ordinary crack in the ice, they have to travel miles to get around it. This leads to the discovery of something so momentous they must get information back to their home base, at McMurdo Station. Before they can even to that they are swept up into an international conflict that could affect the stability of the whole world. Not sure they will get help in time, Gabe doesn't know if he and his team will make it out of Antarctica alive.
