No author can come close to MacLean writing.
A film to be made on location high above the Arctic Circle and a movie company with an international cast which included: a ruthless determined director, made him famous but hated. A ruggedly handsome male lead. A quiet beautiful blond surrounded by mystery. A venomous woman devoted only to herself. A count with lean and awuiline face, the black pencil moustache and evil intentions. A tall handsome, cynical and immoral, he was held to his wife only by blackmail. And the company's doctor who knew from the outset that something was amiss, but had no idea how to deal with it. Go with them on a journey filled with terror and death to Bear Island.
