A classic thriller from the bestselling master of action and suspense.

The atomic submarine Dolphin has impossible orders: to sail beneath the ice-floes of the Arctic Ocean to locate and rescue the men of weather-station Zebra, gutted by fire and drifting with the ice-pack somewhere north of the Arctic Circle.

This is one of Maclean's best thrillers, and is very suspenseful (and typically outlandish in some parts.) It's not obvious what's actually going on and who is a "good guy" until long into the story. The time spent aboard the sub under the ice is especially nerve-wracking. Recommended for adventure story lovers.

The story is written by a Scotsman with excellent knowledge of submarines. His story characters onboard U.S. submarine Dolphin all speak in British English, using words and phrases no American would ever use (such as "rubbish" instead of trash). I could only take 3 chapters of this, and quit. I frankly don't care what Dr. Carpenter will do at Ice Station Zebra, since I am constantly distracted by the incredulousness of U.S. Navy personnel using Britishims when speaking. A real let-down.
