    Another stunner from author Sarah Andrews, this one with a new protag, Valena Walker, working on a master in geology, specializing in glaciology In Cold Pursuit is set in Antarctica and I was caught from the opening pages as Valena is in transport to the South Pole.Like Em Hansen, Valena feels herself apart and alone, someone who doesn t belong So one aspect of the mystery is Valena s search for community, for inner peace and for her own identity Valena has an almost sixth sense about people, Another stunner from author Sarah Andrews, this one with a new protag, Valena Walker, working on a master in geology, specializing in glaciology In Cold Pursuit is set in Antarctica and I was caught from the opening pages as Valena is in transport to the South Pole.Like Em Hansen, Valena feels herself apart and alone, someone who doesn t belong So one aspect of the mystery is Valena s search for community, for inner peace and for her own identity Valena has an almost sixth sense about people, as if she sees their souls and inner truth.Andrews as always, teaches through science In Cold Persuit is the product of an NSF grant in support of science learning and outreach, funding Andrews research and study at McMurdo and in the field, on the ice.I loved Andrews glorious writing of the ice The majesty of the glaciers, the mystery of the ice The enormity of this protected continent, hidden by weather, extreme cold and forbidding environs that support only the most basic of life forms and also seals, penguins and petrels I imagine that Valena s awe is also Andrews as she first sees the massive geological ruptures that create the Ferrar Dolerite That Valena s giddy joy and absolute purity of vision is also Andrews.It s so hard to choose just one of Andrews passages, and you ll just have to read In Cold Pursuit for yourself but here s one small teaser As they flew deeper into the continent, the mountains rose above them into minarets and castles Mammoth tongues of glacial ice licked down wide valleys from the impossibly broad reaches of the Antarctic Plateau Ice and rock, rock and ice rolled out all around them, a symphony of harsh beauty The brute strength and naked vulnerability of the land called Valena to its icy breast Andrews writes of the ice as a living, breathing being that changes and morphs and calls out its soul to those who listen Scott and Shackleton listened,consumed with the idea of conquering Antarctica Valena and I m certain Andrews as well, is breathless here too, seeing the remains of their expeditions preserved in the cold, reminders of mad courage.In Cold Pursuit is a marvelous mystery I hope Andrews will writemysteries set in the last continent, an amazing place If not, I ll just have to read In Cold Pursuit again and againAshland Mystery

    I received this book as a gift from a biologist friend who s given me stuff I enjoyed before This was another hit I really enjoyed the unique setting and the careful and detailed descriptions of Antarctica and its various environments and history Everything appeared to have been meticulously researched I also enjoyed the no nonsense approach to science and what it s telling us about our world past, present, and future I ve known a few people who worked at McMurdo, and this book gave me a I received this book as a gift from a biologist friend who s given me stuff I enjoyed before This was another hit I really enjoyed the unique setting and the careful and detailed descriptions of Antarctica and its various environments and history Everything appeared to have been meticulously researched I also enjoyed the no nonsense approach to science and what it s telling us about our world past, present, and future I ve known a few people who worked at McMurdo, and this book gave me a muchcomplete picture of what their lives must have been like and how the place was set up.I found it a little difficult to track the large number of characters a list of who s who would have been nice, but there didn t seem to be one, at least not in my Nook version the formatting for which was terrible but that s not the author s fault I also hoped for a little less mundane of a solution to the mysteries that are central to the book, maybe something that could only be motivated by the Antarctic environment and the occupations of the people who lived there Instead, the mysteries were transplanted to an exotic locale, but remained run of the mill in motive I still enjoyed the book a lot and will look for other works by this author the setting immersion makes up for any shortcomings in plot

    I really wanted to like this book The concept is great, the setting is interesting, and the science should be good.And it utterly managed to blow all of that The science was tacked in there, with very little relevance to the story, and was overly simplistic The characters were inconsistent and hard to keep track of Even the setting got old And judging from the sheer number of misplaced quotation marks and sentences missing words, a copy editor was desperately needed for this.

  6. Melissa Melissa says:

    This book was pretty slow and hard to get into It had very long sections of technical descriptions that I had to basically skim over Also too many characters were introduced in a short time and a lot of times I didn t know what character they were talking about In the end the mystery did pick up and I got a little bit into it, but it was too little too late I would not recommend this book to a friend.

  7. Lesli Lesli says:

    Wah wah Wah wah wah wah I didn t make it far but several things annoyed me immediately Valena on one page doesn t want to seem TOO interested in making friends with one man On the very next page, she s changing into a curve hugging fleece top before she goes to the mess hall for the very first time Also, the dialog is stiff and Andrews spends a lot of time telling not showing Meh.

    I hate it when the title is the most interesting thing about a book.

    Completely engaging The research Sarah Andrews must ve done to write this was extensive The details of scenery and technology made me feel like I was in Antarctica too I loved the explanations of the evidence scientists collect Nothing scientific was glossed over The plot moved at a good pace and the complexity of the setting and characters reminded me of an Agatha Christie novel If you like to solve the puzzle before the reveal, you might want to read with a notepad nearby I definitely re Completely engaging The research Sarah Andrews must ve done to write this was extensive The details of scenery and technology made me feel like I was in Antarctica too I loved the explanations of the evidence scientists collect Nothing scientific was glossed over The plot moved at a good pace and the complexity of the setting and characters reminded me of an Agatha Christie novel If you like to solve the puzzle before the reveal, you might want to read with a notepad nearby I definitely recommend this to people who enjoy science, nature, mysteries, adventures and diverse teams

    the author wasinterested in proving she knew the technical details of going to Antarctica than developing plot it was cute for a few pages then just tedious a few details to highlight the unique properties of the location would have served the story better than inundating the reader with a welcome to mcmurdo documentary.
