Next up: a haunting thriller than spans continents and centuries—from Victorian England to a remote Antarctic research station, where an ancient glacier yields a shocking prize—and a sinister legacy. With Blood and Ice (on sale 2/24), we welcome Robert Masello to the Bantam Dell list. Think of him as a little bit Clive Cussler and a little bit Bram Stoker.
Here are the facts:
The adventurer: Michael Wilde, journalist for Eco-Travel Magazine, pulled back into his old life after tragedy. But is he ready?
The situation: On assignment near the South Pole, Michael discovers two bodies frozen under the Antarctic ice, and his search to unravel their mystery will take him to unexplored depths of that ocean.
A sampling: “Her scream stopped dead, everything went silent, and with the chain weighting them down, they sank swiftly, spinning in circles, into the frigid, black water.”
What others are saying: “Masello is a true master at blending cutting edge science, historical intrigue, and riveting thrills, and Blood and Ice is a riotous mix of history, cryogenics, vampirism, and a chilling adventure set in the Antarctic. Park in front of a warm fire and prepare to read this in one sitting!” - James Rollins, author of The Last Oracle
