While at an archaeology dig in Afghanistan, Rachel St. Claire, an evolutionary anthropologist, comes across a pendant with strange shifting symbols. Not long after, she receives an urgent call from her colleague, Dr. Grace McAllister, who insists that she come with her and her nephew, Trevor, a handsome polar geophysicist, to Antarctica to examine an unusual body that was found in an ice cave.
Before Rachel can respond, bandits sent by the ruthless Major General Braun storm the site. Just as they are about to seize Rachel, a helicopter appears with Trevor who has been sent by his Aunt to bring Rachel to Antarctica. Trevor soon falls in love with Rachel who, unfortunately, already has a fiance. Little does she know that her fiance is part of a group of bioterrorists who are engaged in secret genetic experiments in an abandoned World War II Nazi base under the Antarctic ice and who are after the pendant--and Rachel.
"Boss does a superb job in using the fierce and alien beauty of Antarctica to heighten the suspense. Deception Island is a fun and exciting read that will whisk you away to new and wondrous worlds and warm our heart with romance and hope." -Katherine Wurtz, former Executive Director New Hampshire Writers Project
"I loved it! Deception Island is exciting, constantly moving right from the first page. As a five-time visitor to Antarctica, the vivid descriptions brought back fond memories." -Carl Beaulieu, Mechanical Engineer
