Read full description of the books:
This is a good book; maybe not Smith's best, but certainly above average for the genre. The combination of solid plotting and engaging technical detail (who knew there could be such a thing?) makes for an eventful and thought-provoking read.
The then-contemporary storyline covers salvage workers on the world's oceans. It doesn't sound like the most entertaining of subjects, but in Smith's hands it's both suspenseful and exciting. The initial extended set-piece involving the attempted salvage of a ship and the rescue of passengers in some extremely hostile icy contains is excellent and really kicks things off on a high.
The middle section of the story does get bogged down a bit with a romantic sub-plot, although the hero is interesting enough to keep you reading. Things build to an inevitable climax which makes use of some plot contrivance but nonetheless doesn't disappoint. The villain in this one isn't quite as diabolical as in some of Smith's other novels but nonetheless I found this to be, as a whole, a well-plotted and enjoyable book that I'm glad I found the time to read.
