A future winter November 2018. The Eye of Heaven—a prototype Chinese satellite with next generation technology falls and is lost in the polar icecap. The race begins when two superpowers face oﬀ, one to learn secrets, the other to keep them. And they will send their greatest weapons wielded by their ﬁercest warriors to reach the prize.
Special Agent Greg Cole, a man of lethal skill, pathological appetites, and a Machiavellian intellect, who engineered the theft of the satellite. For him, retrieving its secrets would be a career-making coup and nothing; no one was going to stand in his way—friend, foe, or innocent bystander.
SEAL Command Master Chief Carter Bohem—an aging warrior given one ﬁnal chance to prove he can still run with the wolves, never questioned his orders or his purpose . . . until this mission. Until his orders called for murder.
Colonel Xiang Lai Peng of the People’s Republic of China—Tasked by his government to retrieve the satellite at all costs, this elite unit commander will lead his men into an unimaginable nightmare where the price of success will be all too high.
Captain Marcus Cartaneo USN—Commander of the USS Seawolf, a submarine bristling with a frightening array of weaponry and the combined technological might of a superpower. Yet, its weakness lies in the tragedy haunted crew on the verge of mutiny against a commanding oﬃcer who has lost their trust.
But natural enemies are the least of their worries for as the Arctic winter storms close in; something else has awakened deep within the ice. An elder force that once roamed ancient seas with impunity, now consigned to the realm of myth legend has returned. The stories speak of its savagery; pure, insatiable and untainted by conscience or reason yet possessing immense power and fearsome intelligence.
In this cold, unforgiving wasteland, man and machine will come face to face with a malevolent, unrelenting entity who will hunt them across ice, across oceans to the very doorstep of their homes. Only the survivor, only the triumphant will be the Apex Predator.
