From the back cover:
"October is no time to be aboard ship in the Barents Sea, 300 miles north of the Artic Circle. But that's where the cast and crew of Olympus Productions find themselves. And even before they reach their destination, the ship's doctor has his hands full. 3 men are violently murdered, and the company's unspoken fears are confirmed: a pathological killer awaits them on the lonliest, most desolate island in the world.
Does Bear Island guard a secret more valuable than 5 lives? Why is there no shooting script for the movie? And why has no one except the director been allowed to see the screeplay? Is the entire company marked for death? Does a mass murderer lurk in it's midst, a patholigical killer?"
