Description

Their greatest fear was contaminating an ancient Antarctic lake, buried beneath the ice for millions of years. They little knew the catastrophe they were about to unleash.

Welcome to the high octane world of Olivia Wolfe.

As an investigative journalist, Wolfe lives her life in constant peril. Hunted by numerous enemies who are seldom what the first seem, she must unravel a complex web of lies to uncover an even more terrifying truth.

From the poppy palaces of Afghanistan and Antarctica's forbidding wind-swept ice sheets, to a top-secret military base in the Nevada desert, Wolfe's journey will ultimately lead her to a man who would obliterate civilisation. She must make an impossible choice: save a life - or prevent the death of millions.

Review quote

This is one of the best books I've read in the last couple of years, and if you're only going to read one novel in 2017, I suggest you make it Devour * Culture Fly * This Antarctic thriller is a rollicking good read, with a true hero and fabulous accompanying cast -- Vanda Symon, author (on Thirst) Action that hits like an icepick in the back of the head -- John Birmingham, author (on Thirst) Deserves comparisons to Michael Crichton and John Grisham * ABC North Queensland (on Thirst) * A frantic rollercoaster of plot twists until the final resolution * The Herald Sun (on Thirst) * Olivia Wolfe delivers action and intrigue in spades -- Peter James
