Across the brutal no-man's land of the Arctic tundra moves a solitary figure. Drugged past the point of exhaustion, totally unprepared for survival in subzero temperatures, he must endure a frozen hell no human has endured before. This man is a uniquely trained, invaluable American agent, and he carries with him information which will determine the course of history.
Joe Poyer unfolds the tremendously exciting adventure story that follows with a tautness that grips the reader as he is carried relentlessly through the twits of fortune in a highly dangerous mission.
North Cape combines strong narrative with a realism and technical accuracy which makes one feel with absolute certainty as the great powers grapple with one another that this could happen. But the book shows that it would still be the human qualities of fortitude, courage, physical strength and loyalty which would triumph over the machine and the worst conditions known to man.
