Synopsis

ONE DEAD BODY. TWELVE SUSPECTS. TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR DARKNESS.



'Outstanding ... Haughton writes vividly about a claustrophobic community ... her novel really is a superlative locked-room mystery' Sunday Times (Crime Book of the Month)



'Haughton has created a fantastically atmospheric setting ... it's a chilling race to the finish to discover whodunnit' Observer



In the most inhospitable environment - cut off from the rest of the world - there's a killer on the loose.



A&E doctor Kate North has been knocked out of her orbit by a personal tragedy. So when she's offered the opportunity to be an emergency replacement at the UN research station in Antarctica, she jumps at the chance. The previous doctor, Jean-Luc, died in a tragic accident while out on the ice.



The move seems an ideal solution for Kate: no one knows about her past; no one is checking up on her. But as total darkness descends for the winter, she begins to suspect that Jean-Luc's death wasn't accidental at all.



And the more questions she asks, the more dangerous it becomes . . .



'The kind of heart-pounding, sleep-stealing read that you want to recommend to everyone you meet. An absolutely thrilling book' CASS GREEN

'Chilling and atmospheric . . . had me turning the pages late into the night' MARK EDWARDS

'Tense, thrilling and unpredictable, with one of the most unique and dangerous settings imaginable' ALLIE REYNOLDS

'Set against the dangerous sub-zero temperatures end endless night of the Antarctic... Brilliantly atmospheric and terrifying' CATHERINE COOPER

'Tense, twisted and quite literally chilling - a locked room mystery in a unique setting where no one can be trusted' SUSI HOLLIDAY

'Atmospheric, original and full of tension' AMANDA JENNINGS

'A real edge-of-the-seat plot. I loved it. Original and accomplished' J.A. CORRIGAN
