Polar Melt: A Novel

We rated this book:


In a very big way, Polar Melt wouldn’t be possible or so close to possible reality without global warming and melting ice at both poles. Without that or Americans or Russians, the main two countries colliding in this book, couldn’t even begin to imagine capturing some unknown underwater creature.

It’s something that Russians want only for themselves, so it’s almost like an invitation for American authorities to look deeper into their activities when the crew of their vessel and a scientific oceanographic exploration team mysteriously disappear, leaving a submarine closed and completely empty. The case is assigned to a team experienced with this kind of strange events on open water or under it. It’s lead by Douglas Munro Gates, although joining this investigation happened against his wishes. But lately he has gained a reputation as someone who can see supernatural things. Like when he saved another of his crew after a warning from the Flying Dutchman.

Action scenes or flying bullets don’t come from every corner–the elements of technical military detail are more dominant. The book itself doesn’t drag, but the main intrigue that keeps the reader’s attention is the mystery behind this UFO, only this time it’s underwater. Polar Melt ends in a way that really makes you want that this wouldn’t be just a standalone.
