"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, a nightmare of physics requiring incredible human ingenuity. 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."-- Provided by publisher

Found this book very uninteresting. Surprised, usually like these authors. Would not really recommend.

Not what I expected and thought the story line disappointed especially at the end.

This is the perfect book about human hubris and above all, one man's inability to accept his human limitations. Well written, entertaining, and well-developed characters. I think the end was a bit over the top. Overall a very good read

Could anyone not see the outcome of this book? Nature vs. Human and technology. Dude, you know who is going to win!

Read this book as a digital audio book. Well read by narrator.

A good read with interesting characters.

Didn't find the ending was strong -- though the news clippings at the end, left you hanging.....
