VALHALLAFar beneath the Greenland ice cap, an expedition team searching for a lost World War II bomber makes an astounding discovery. Encased in the ice five hundred feet beneath the plane is the wreckage of an ancient ship—and nine perfectly preserved Viking crewmen. Rune markings reveal it to be more than a thousand years old.

But the U.S. government has its own team on the hunt. From the mountains of Bavaria to the jungles of Central America and across the vast Pacific, professor Barnaby Finchem, his brilliant protégé, Lexy Vaughan, and pilot Steve Macaulay will brave the wrath of nature and of man to win a race against unbridled tyranny….
