Leah Andrews is an archaeologist. Jack Hobson is a climbing guide.

To get one thing settled immediately, the two individuals who would find themselves up against all sorts of troubles from several countries and intelligence agencies were not together when the circumstances which lead to the first trouble started but they already knew each well, perhaps too well. They had once been married. Technically, though they were no longer together, they were still married but it was not something either mentioned very often.

The Dr. Andrews we first meet is an adventurous sort, standing as she in a thunderstorm atop a crevasse in the Gila National Wilderness, technically a trespasser who needs to keep one eye out for the Park Rangers, one at the weather, and one at the huge drop she is about to repel down into. She will make that climb down and then make a discovery that could make her world famous in her field, or a resident of a federal prison for being where she was not supposed to be, or dead from those who really did not like what she found.

The Hobson in question is a world-renown climbing expert, a man who had summit-ted just about every peak there was in every continent there was, including Antarctica. When we first encounter him, he is helping a billionaire achieve his dream of reaching the top of Mount Everest.

The find that Andrews would make would require an expert in climbing which would force her to reluctantly ask for his help and would put both of them in a whole lot of danger.

Both the Americans and Russians are ready to go to full out war over what was found in Antarctica. Leah Andrews and Jack Hobson barely survived a nuclear blast and know they are still on both nations' kill list. They have an ace of their own, though, in a nuclear weapon hidden back in New Mexico. To stay alive they will need to understand how two dozen Native American cliff dwellers have survived frozen in ice for 800 years.

This is an interesting story which was fun to read. It feels like really atwo-part adventure broken at a good spot so that you could read just one half but for the full story with a better conclusion, reading them in order is best.

Leah Andrews is a lot of fun in that she is so headstrong she will go her own way even when she knows she really shouldn't. The lady can't stop herself. And her 'almost-ex' husband is just as stubborn so it is no wonder the two are separated and why they are still mad about each other.

The reason for their inclusion in this compendium is the fact that what Andrews finds gets some pretty determined agents from two super powers after them and the fate of the world sort of rests on them.
