When Richard Freeley decided to give a presentation on the controversial subject of Antarctic sea ice expansion at a conference, he never expected a rival to humiliate him onstage and backlash to follow from every corner of the media landscape. Though eccentric energy executive and billionaire Jed Baton offers Richard a chance at redemption through a lavishly funded private research expedition to the Antarctic, Richard would rather decline, but his wife, a struggling filmmaker named Julie Asgard, has other plans. The couple join Baton and an idiosyncratic team on the icebreaker ship Sarmiento. Soon they discover that someone is sabotaging their work, leading to perilous incidents on board the ship. As the voyage heads inexorably toward a mysterious Antarctic glacier called Blood Falls, nothing is what it seems, and Richard and Julie find themselves pitted against each other in a conspiracy which could upend the global economy.
