The Ice Limit

The Ice Limit - Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child "The Ice Limit" was something of a departure for the Preston/Child duo: a techno-thriller.In this novel, a multi-disciplinary scientific team recovers a highly unusual meteorite from one of the Cape Horn islands. The recovery is fraught with unusual deaths and issues, but the team soldiers on -- even when becalmed in the so-called Ice Limits near Antarctica. The characters are, as usual, richly drawn and interesting. However, techno-thrillers are not really my cup of tea and so I did not enjoy this book quite as much as I have other Preston/Child works.Four stars for excellent writing and well-developed drama, but not a book I would re-read.
