Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child
I read this book for the Monthly Key Word Challenge. Key Word: Freeze
I really enjoy the novels written by Child and his writing partner, Douglas Preston. This is the first novel I read written by Child alone. I really enjoyed reading this. It would make an exciting movie!
A team of scientists from a university in Massachusetts goes to Mount Fear in Alaska to study global warming. They are underwritten by a TV channel who owns rights to everything they find. Boy, do they find something, a possibly prehistoric cat. The tv people come to "document" the thawing of the animal and that is when trouble begins.
A local Tunit tribe warn everyone to leave because they don't understand what is going to happen. Of course no one listens to them.
