Review Text

Sixteen-year-old Scott O`Toole has to call on all his survival techniques when the small plane he`s travelling in crashes in a frozen wilderness and the pilot is killed. But this is only the beginning of his problems. Ten miles away, in an isolated cabin, resides a man with an assortment of names, an arsenal of weaponry in a secret room, and who is embarked on a deadly mission. Scott`s divorced parents - always at loggerheads over their son - are distraught. His mother is the best-selling author of pop-psychology books. Her readers are going to be watching closely to see how she deals with a major personal crisis. Scott`s father has his work cut out trying to galvanise the authorities into action when the local police chief has the additional headaches of a visiting US President and the mysterious death of a truck driver to contend with as well as the missing teenager. Lock the doors. Unplug the phone. This unputdownable thriller is a tour de force. (Kirkus UK)show more
