"Beyond America's northernmost frontier, amid the frozen oil-rich tar sands of Athabasca, comes this headlong tale of blackmail, kidnapping, and murder - and of ruthless men who attempt to hold hostage the Alaskan pipeline itself. . . "
Alistair MacLean is good form, displaying his penchant for snow-covered techno-thrillers, set in both Canada and Alaska.; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
