'A thoroughly professional cliff-hanger' Sunday Telegraph

About the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.

This is easily one of the best spy / adventure / crime books of all time. Though I have read it many times over the years and know every detail, I still take it down of the shelf now and then just to immerse myself in a truely first rate novel. Mr. Maclean builds a great story (and I defy anyone to guess who the killer is before he reveals the answer).

I walked into a book shop in Manly Australia in 1999 while on holiday, the sales assistant after watching me struggle to find something to read came over to me with Ice Station in his hand. He told me that if I buy this book and I don't like it, he will give me my money back! Hence to say I never got my money back. The book was fantastic from start to Finnish. I have since lent it to my friends and they have all loved it just as much. If you like your books fast and furious, Go and buy this book.

Format: Paperback
Ice station Zebra, published in 1963, was Alistair MacLean's tenth fiction book. And it is a brilliant read. Dr. John Carpenter is attached to the nuclear submarine Dolphin in a desperate race to the Arctic to rescue the inhabitants of Ice Station Zebra, which has just suffered a devastating fire. But, as usual with MacLean, there is much more to the story and it involves lots of underhanded spy business and devious shenanigans as a saboteur seems to be running amok among them.

It benefits from the setting of the submarine, allowing MacLean to not only tell a gripping little spy story, but also to work in some tense and dramatic set pieces based around the perils of submarining. MacLean has all his stock characters - the sardonic hero with his secret knowledge, the cunning mastermind villain and the tough, reliable good guys that seem to populate most of his books. No matter that we've met them all before, they seem like old friends whose company we can enjoy for another few hours. It's a cracking read and recommended for all fans of this boys own style adventure.
