Vostok begins in Antarctica where a local scientific expedition yields a staggering find. Zachary Wallace is a doctor who is renowned and reviled for his discovery and destruction of the Loch Ness monster in Scotland. He is recruited for a mission to unlock the mysteries under the Antarctic ice and report on them. His initial reluctance is undermined by his manipulative father’s machinations. He embarks on his undersea voyage with a Doctor and a former pilot, and his expectations are soon surpassed in every imaginable way.

Steve Alten’s newest book is wildly imaginative. The reader is hit with sharp plot twists when they are least expected. Dangerous underwater creatures are just some of the worries facing the main character and his associates. The twists can sometimes overwhelm, but are never boring. It was truly hard to put this book down. Alten has crafted a fine novel of suspense.
