In Memoriam

Once again, this novel is dedicated to my son, Hunter Dale Brown. My fondest memories of him are when I gave him his firstbath in my kitchen sink when he was about a week old, with his mom looking on in terror; his high school graduation partyon the shores of Lake Tahoe; his Eagle Scout court of honor; and collaborating on my novel Strike Force when he was just nine years old, tossing ideas back and forth as I drove him home from school.

Like his old man, Hunter was quiet, a little shy, and fiercely loyal to those who got to know him. He was a hard worker, thego-to IT guy, a great teacher, and the best son Diane and I could have ever wished for.

Life is nothing but the soul’s never-ending journey through time and space, and I’m happy that Hunter’s came into our lives.We love and miss you, big guy. Enjoy the rest of your journey.

Epigraph

We had discovered an accursed country. We had found the Home of the Blizzard.

—Sir Douglas Mawson, polar explorer

I will find a way out or make one.

—Attributed to Robert Peary, Arctic explorer
