This was incredible!  It should really be called "Physics Fiction", because it stressed everything physics does, from coriolis force to melting ice.  From beginning to end, it had action, suspense, drama.  I could see the entire book proceeding in my mind.  Worth a second read.  Now, on to the sequel!
