When it’s discovered the cavern was occupied 180,000 years ago and contains a perfectly preserved hi-tech habitat and a travel machine, ISUP’s benign scientific expedition to study the origin and contents of the cavern turns chaotic. Ferreting out the existence and significance of the discoveries, nations and terrorists mount sophisticated operations to acquire technological treasures for their own purposes. Frantic action streams across the globe, crossing oceans and air lanes: Prague; London; New York; Washington, D.C.; Libya; France; Spain; Iceland; China. As factions grapple for control, survival of the ISUP scientists lies in their choices of whom to trust and determining how the mysterious new technologies function. Marshall Chamberlain weaves a magnificent adventure into plausible reality, transporting readers into unique realms of danger and suspense. Stalwart characters meet avarice and violence head-on in Book II of the Ancestor Series of adventure-thrillers. The Ice Cap and the Rift is spellbinding and scientifically mysterious.
