Synopsis: A Tanner Sequence Novel
CCF homicide investigator Kyle Tanner and his girlfriend are on their way to Pluto, en route to a new life together. Just one little death to check out in the asteroid belt first. But when you're as tangled up in conspiracy as Tanner is, a few hours on a case can change your life. Or end it.
The mystery is a strange one—one man dead, a cryptic message his dying breath. Still, Tanner's ready to wrap it up until another gruesome murder shakes him to his core. The discovery of a microscopic bomb near his own heart offers the first faint clue, but the clock is ticking. He has four days….
A desperate search for answers takes Tanner to The Freezer, an isolated facility on one of Jupiter's moons. With anti-CCF dissidents targeting the facility, a team of scientists conducting experiments the military would rather remain hidden, and a mysterious man in white hunting him on the ice, Tanner will have to choose his allies carefully. Putting his faith in the wrong person will leave him bleeding out in seconds.
Review: Kyle Tanner is back in action after the events in THE FURNACE when a scientist dies on Ceres, but the investigation soon turns Tanner’s sight to finding a murderer. His own. With four days until the microbomb in his heart completes its deadly work, Tanner must travel to The Freezer on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. The Freezer is an isolated research facility looking for signs of life under the ice, but there is something more sinister at work. Can Tanner figure out who the murderer is before he is their next victim?
THE FREEZER blends true science, science fiction, and a thrilling mystery. Tanner has a huge personal stake in solving this mystery and he is quite unsure of whom he can trust, beside himself. Readers will see deeper into Tanner’s psyche as his emotions play heavily into his judgment during the investigation. The science, which obviously plays a vital part in the story, is presented to readers in such as way to make it understandable and enhances the plot. Tanner himself is a complex character and his orders put him in a delicate position between his duty and the truth. THE FREEZER is an exceptional story of murder, intrigue, and cutting–edge science.
