A Blizzard of Polar Bears
A Blizzard of Polar Bears: A Novel of Suspense | Alice Henderson
5 posts | 4 read | 6 to read
Wildlife biologist Alex Carter is back, fighting for endangered species in the Canadian Arctic and battling for her life in this action-packed follow-up to A Solitude of Wolverines, a true stunner of a thriller debut (James Rollins) and a great read (Nevada Barr). Fresh off her wolverine study in Montana, wildlife biologist Alex Carter lands a job studying a threatened population of polar bears in the Canadian Arctic. Embedded with a small team of Arctic researchers, she tracks the majestic bears by air, following them over vast, snowy terrain, spending days leaning precariously out of a helicopter with a tranquilizer gun, until she can get down on the ice to examine them up close. But as her study progresses, and she gathers data on the health of individual bears, things start to go awry. Her helicopter pilot quits unexpectedly, equipment goes missing, and a late-night intruder breaks into her lab and steals the samples shes collected. She realizes that someone doesnt want her to complete her study, but Alex is not easily deterred. Managing to find a replacement pilot, she returns to the icy expanses of Hudson Bay. But the helicopter catches fire in midflight, forcing the team to land on a vast sheet of white far from civilization. Surviving on the frozen landscape is difficult enough, but as armed assailants close in on snowmobiles, Alex must rely on her skills and tenacity to survive this onslaught and carry out her mission.

I never read book 1, so this was a new experience for me. This is an unexpected story of suspense that finds lead character, wildlife biologist Alex, trying to study environmental impacts on polar bears. It soon becomes apparent that someone doesn‘t want her to complete her study, and like all good mysteries, the bodies start to pile up. An exciting blend of science knowledge and mystery.

Alex Carter rocks! Who knew that a wildlife biologist led such an exciting life? Vikings, sunken treasure, the Arctic, polar bears, poaching, surviving nights on an iceberg, murder, intrigue. It‘s all here and more! Read this book. Read this series. I can hardly wait for the third book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
