On a desolate island off the southern coast of Chile an
incredible discovery is made: a gigantic meteorite, the largest ever found,
entombed in the earth for millions of years.
Half a world away, billionaire entrepreneur Palmer Lloyd
decides he must have it as the centerpiece of his grandiose new museum. He is
willing to pay any price, in dollars and in lives. Getting it back to New York
poses a particular challenge: It will be the heaviest object ever moved by
Fueled by Lloyd’s money, an audacious expedition takes
shape. Disguising a state of the art ship as a rusted freighter, the expedition
secretly heads southward with a fail-safe plan to steal the meteorite from
Chile. Leading the group is an inscrutable engineer hired by Lloyd, and a world
famous meteorite hunter whose career was shattered by a controversial theory.
Soon, in the grip of a frozen hell along the icy rim of
Antarctica, the adventurers are confronted with a terrifying enigma about the
origin and nature of the meteorite. It is a mystery they must solve if they are
to escape with their lives.
