Winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel
Two environmental scientists, one who takes his work and himself seriously, the other a pop culture geek with a junk food habit, struggle for survival when paramilitary fanatics demolish their remote science station in the frozen wasteland at the bottom of the world. Drs. Pratt and Eaton uncover The Order of the Red Wolf's Cold War Era nuclear reactor, but not before it has irradiated the Antarctic fauna and created hordes of ravenous mutations.
Can the oddball duo survive monstrosities that roam the ruins of their devastated science station?
Will they be able to overcome their own desperate appetites-- born of madness and starvation?
One thing is certain. They will learn the meaning of terror when the cold cuts deep.
