A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world...
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child.

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologist Evan Marshall and a small group of fellow scientists, an expedition to the Zone represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the effects of global warming.

Everything about the expedition changes, however, with an astonishing find. On a routine exploration of a glacial ice cave, the group discovers an enormous ancient animal, encased in solid ice. The media conglomerate sponsoring their research immediately intervenes and arranges the ultimate spectacle: the creature will be cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed live on television. Despite dire warnings from the local Native American village, and the scientific concerns of Marshall and his team, the docudrama plows ahead...until the scientists make one more horrifying discovery. The beast is no regular specimen; it may be an ancient killing machine. And they may be premature in believing it dead.

In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/19/2014

    " A good page turner, quick read. Although towards the end I was ready for it to be over, and there was no main character to sympathize with throughout the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Tyson | 2/7/2014

    " A fun read... but not one of Lincoln Childs best. A page flipper for sure though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 2/3/2014

    " Interesting read, didn't stay in my thoughts after finishing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Polino | 1/28/2014

    " This book left me flat. Like Deep Storm it was good but it didn't wow me like Utopia or like some of the Preston/Child books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mia | 1/22/2014

    " A fun and fast adventure thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Crawford | 1/11/2014

    " Worth the read if you like this genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 1/10/2014

    " Just started listening to this audio book. I liked it. At least it wasn't just the same old mystery books I read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Garrymurdock | 1/5/2014

    " Good but not great, some loose ends not tied up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sister Pam | 12/30/2013

    " While some might truly enjoy books of this nature, they are not for me. I listened to it as a CD while driving, otherwise I would not have finished reading it. The whole story seemed a bit preposterous, but then real life can be the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 12/29/2013

    " Not bad. A few too many undeveloped characters, I rarley think this but the cook could have used about 50-60 more pages to flesh it all out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/18/2013

    " Not a bad book but not spectacular either. The idea of the book was fun, if not over-used, and there were some unique features that kept my interest. It was a little too predictable at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan | 12/6/2013

    " Ok - first off this book was a fun read and I was really enjoying a little "brain candy". However, the last few chapters feel like he didn't know where or how he was going to finish the book so he just did. Because there were a few loose ends he just tied them up with the ol' "what if" scenarios. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Sandidge | 12/4/2013

    " Predictable slow starting mystery with minimal character development. I don't read many scary books, though, and, for me, the second half was too scary to not finish before I went to sleep! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Crowe | 12/1/2013

    " Meh. One of those trashy reads that gets you to sleep at night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 9/24/2013

    " ok. Lots of chase scenes than specul and answers "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 tastybeets | 11/30/2012

    " It was like The Relic set somewhere else with different characters. Mediocre. I love this author, but I had a hell of a time getting through this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashlee | 11/17/2012

    " BIZARRE... I did like the vocabulary though- I often read while feeding the baby so I sometimes read out loud. I realized I didn't even know how to pronounce some of the words! If you want something dark and twisted though I would go with Death Match by the same author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Harper | 10/17/2012

    " Great book! Couldn't but it down and very suspenseful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose | 8/31/2012

    " I hesitated to get this book because I was not sure how the whole reviving a monster issue was going to attract me... but it turns out to be a very good book... and it reminded me a lot of The Relic... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 7/9/2012

    " Good book. Lots of action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wind | 3/14/2012

    " Exciting! Lincoln Child is one of my favorite authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nici | 1/27/2012

    " I've read better Lincoln Child books. They were never as great as the ones he writes with Douglas Preston but not bad at all. This one wasn't bad either ... just not as good as the others. It started kinda slow and boring. But the ending was better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bookman8 | 12/19/2011

    " Standard fare. An ancient Inuit monster is unleashed from Alaska's ice, terrorizing the population of a scientific expedition and a television production company. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carey Stanley | 6/13/2011

    " Kind of suspenseful and held my interest, but wasn't a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fredrick | 5/20/2011

    " A team of scientists discover what they believe to be a saber-tooth frozen in an extinct volcano in Alaska. Working from a moth balled military base, things change when a documentary from their media sponsors take over the specimen. Plenty of action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ksafford | 5/11/2011

    " Have never read anything by this author so hope it is good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 5/8/2011

    " This book left me flat. Like Deep Storm it was good but it didn't wow me like Utopia or like some of the Preston/Child books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 4/7/2011

    " Like all the other books he has written, Terminal Freeze is exciting, dangerous and full of suspense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sister Pam | 4/7/2011

    " While some might truly enjoy books of this nature, they are not for me. I listened to it as a CD while driving, otherwise I would not have finished reading it. The whole story seemed a bit preposterous, but then real life can be the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " ok. Lots of chase scenes than specul and answers "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nurture | 3/29/2011

    " This was an interesting premise, but the writing was mediocre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 2/7/2011

    " Not as good or scary as all his others "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 1/26/2011

    " I really liked the first half of this book, but it started getting weird and predictable when he added a shaman, and a monster who predictably kills half the characters off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emilie | 1/3/2011

    " I was just a bit disappointed as I'd just finished a Preston/Child novel. I'd forgotten the Lincoln Child can be pretty gory. Great story but way more blood, gore & (yes) sound effects than I could enjoy. I'll still read every one of his novels though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesswa | 12/29/2010

    " I had never read his work before and was not prepared for the sci-fi element. Regardless, I enjoyed the suspense! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose | 12/17/2010

    " I hesitated to get this book because I was not sure how the whole reviving a monster issue was going to attract me... but it turns out to be a very good book... and it reminded me a lot of The Relic... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 11/27/2010

    " It was okay, some good action scenes and the premise is interesting. There were a few inconsistencies. Places where I wondered why they did X or why they didn't try Y (no spoilers) but not so much that it spoiled the story.
