The Best of Maclean,
This review is from: Ice Station Zebra (Paperback)
This book is about the cold war, suspense, knives in the dark (ok not literally), a race against time, submarines and a showdown on the north pole! Oh and it's good at what it does, very good.
Maclean creates here the perfect suspense thriller. Form the very outset we are launched into the action as the nuclear submarine Dolphin prepares to depart on a mission of mercy to a north pole science station destroyed by a fire, but all is not as it seems.
Straight away things are suspicious, you will find yourself unable to stop turning the pages as you follow the charaters in their attempt to uncover the truth. Twist after twist and revelation after revelation will keep you guessing right up to the end. This is utterly believeable drama you won't be disapointed. I actually find that I believe I am a member of the Dolphin's crew on the mission with them! And its a hellova ride, well worth the investment.
