The UN's Institute for the Study of Unusual Phenomena (ISUP), led by its new director, John Henry Morgan, geologist, ex-marine, is cast into the aftermath of the largest single shift ever recorded in the Earth's crust.

ISUP's benign scientific expedition to study the origin and contents of the rift cavern turns dangerous and chaotic when it's discovered it was occupied 180,000 years ago and contains a perfectly preserved hi-tech habitat, complete with functional travel vehicles.

Ferreting out the existence and significance of the discoveries, nations and terrorists mount sophisticated operations to acquire technological treasures for their own purposes. The ISUP organization finds itself at the convergence of clandestine assault from several fronts. Acts of deceit and violence escalate into brutality. Lives are expendable. Frantic action streams across the globe, crossing oceans and air-lanes: Prague; London; New York; Washington, D.C.; Libya; France; Spain; Iceland; China.

The Ice Cap and the Rift, is a spellbinding adventure, scientifically mysterious and metaphysically familiar. Breaking new ground at the speed of light, stalwart characters meet avarice and violence head-on as Chamberlain weaves the second installment in the Ancestor Series of adventure-thrillers.
