Turner delivers another brilliant suspense novel with Out of the Ice, solidifying her position as one of Australia’s best thriller writers. Turner has an unrivalled skill in creating intelligent characters and plots while at the same time evoking breathtaking settings that seamlessly transport her readers to another world.
Laura Alvarado is an Australian marine biologist stationed in the stunning Antarctic studying whales and penguins. When she is asked to undertake a special environmental impact study of a long-ago abandoned whaling station, the ghosts of Laura’s past catch up with her – fast. Is her imagination working overtime (a bit ‘toasty’ perhaps – a common conditional among those stationed for too long ) or is the ice hiding unimaginable secrets? As Laura delves deeper into this haunting and remote environment, nothing, and no one, are what they seem. Now Laura needs to make sense of not only her painful past but also the deceptive present.
