by Lincoln Child
A SF suspense novel for fans of the original movie The Thing From Another World and the TV show The X-Files. An unknown creature is found in a block of ice in the arctic. Of course the ice thaws, the creature escapes, and a snowstorm strands everyone at the arctic base. Toss in a government conspiracy of silence (this had also happened 50 years earlier), Natives with dire warnings, and an irritating cable network that is only concerned with ratings. A bit on the gory side at times, the final four chapters I found downright scary. Well told -- I couldn't put it down. -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
