|Plot Summary of Big Ice|
Seth Peterson witnesses a car crash during a snowstorm in Washington, D.C. As the crashed Blazer begins to smolder and the onlooking crowd does nothing, Seth rescues the driver, narrowly escaping the escalating flames. Unfortunately for the seriously social phobic Seth, the rescue brings unwanted media attention.
Seth has more than enough scrutiny that he can stand thanks to his discovery. As a Polar Ice Researcher, he believes that he has developed a program through his job at the National Ice Center, to identify where and when large slabs of the Antarctic Ice Shelf might break away. The results of such a massive release of ice would be disastrous for a world unprepared. Such knowledge could be worth millions and power to some.
Such knowledge would especially be important to members of a doomsday cult which believes an ancient prophecy is finally about to happen. Since Seth can predict where and when, it stands to reason in their minds he could assist them in actually making it happen. They need his knowledge willing or otherwise to assist them to fulfill the prophecy and thanks to the media exposure have a very good idea where to find him.
The chase is on as Seth narrowly escapes their clutches.
