Description

The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die. A frightening truth is about to unfold: The men and women of the Rolvaag are not taking this ancient, enigmatic object anywhere. It is taking them.

Professional reviews

"Suspense fills the air as Brick reads slowly and carefully, then more quickly as the tension mounts in this sci-fi thriller. Special effect sounds, such as static-filled radio transmissions and cars running, are random but when used, they add to the realism of the drama unfolding. Musical crescendos transition scenes and lend to the dramatic climax of each chapter. When softening his voice and using an Irish lilt for the female captain's commands, or using a whiny, spoiled tone for the financier's tantrums, Brick is adept at changing his expression and inflection to match each characterization. This is a highly effective presentation that matches a great story. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
