Editorial Reviews


"[Cohen] takes you to the bottom of the Earth where you'll find murder and mayhem blended with a dash of chilling drama!"
--Deb Fowler for Feathered Quill Book Review

"A fast read, with plenty of Chilean naval history and drama on the high seas in one action-packed novel full of big surprises." --Gary P. Priolo for NavSource Naval History

"Frozen in Time is compelling reading combining the elements of conflict, suspense, intrigue, entertainment, and enlightenment. I highly recommended it." --Richard R. Blake for Reader Views

"A nasty little piece of skullduggery made all the more so by the fact this fictional tale is based on real events in the author's life."
--Reviewed by Kirkus Discoveries Reviews

"If the storms make one think of Patrick O'Brian, so does the interspersing of sea and science..."
--M. K. Turner for BookReview.com

From the Author

This is a work of fiction based on real events that took place between 1958 and 1965. It depicts many actual events and people in my life, though some situations and all of the dialogue are pure invention.

Real names are used in cases of people who have passed away. The names of living persons (with the exception of my family member's first names) have been changed. For my family, the name "Stone" has been substituted for "Cohen" to acknowledge the fact that considerable license has been taken in telling the tale. Some characters are totally fictitious, as are the names of some agencies and organizations, both military and academic.

By April M. Hanson on February 7, 2011
Format: Paperback
Author Theodore Jerome Cohen adeptly mixes fact with fiction in his fascinating novel, "Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World". Taking place during the austral summer of 1961-1962, we embark on the adventure of a lifetime with Ted Stone, a graduate student on his way to the Antarctic to assist in the collection of rock samples as well as establishing a new gravity network. The journey is difficult, to say the least, and could easily turn deadly due to severe storms, icebergs, calving glaciers and even hungry orcas. Mr. Cohen uses his unique personal experience to bring this story to life in a way that allows the reader to easily picture the beautiful setting as well as the dangers of life in such a harsh environment.

That said, I found the book to be engaging and, at times, intriguing but I wasn't left with a desire to read the other two books in the Antarctic Murders trilogy. This book is marketed as a novel but it is made very clear that it is based on actual events. In an effort to clarify what is real and what isn't, the author has made use of footnotes, often referencing web sites, which the reader can use to familiarize themselves with the truth that surrounds the fiction. I found these footnotes to be very distracting and they often pulled my focus from the story just as I was getting more into it. I think the book would have been better served had this information been listed at the end in a "For more information" section or something similar.

Even though I had some issues with the layout of the book, it is obvious that Mr. Cohen is passionate about Antarctica and he uses that to his advantage throughout the novel to weave his story. It is well written, unique in perspective and offers a glimpse into an environment that most of us will never experience.

Theodore Jerome Cohen's latest novel, Frozen in Time, is a fascinating adventure spun by our hero, Ted Stone, a young man earning his doctorate degree in geophysics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has the unique fortune (good or bad is for you to decide), to be offered a job as a geologist's assistant on an expedition to Antarctica, the bottom of the world.

Leaving his college friends and girlfriend Susan behind, he finds nothing is `moderate' about the Antarctic. The weather is severe with fleeting bouts of calm. Mostly light `round the clock', day and night are one and the same. On the way down from Chile, and in the waters around the continent itself, high winds, sleet, rogue waves, and ever-present icebergs pose a constant threat to the ships and the men who sail them. Before they even arrive at their harsh destination, we are made aware of their being at the mercy of something far beyond the control of Man. It's as if Nature is working to expel the `invaders' of Her pristine white domain.

Antarctica is a desolate place, mostly devoid of humans. Travel there is only for the strongest of men (and women), and no amount of preparation is enough. A few handfuls of people, either through their military assignments or scientific stewardship, ever have the chance to experience fully the intensity of what is to be found there. Daily survival never can be taken for granted.

The author tells us that this novel is based on real events from his life. The descriptions of the conditions in and around the North Antarctic Peninsula as well as of the landscape and people found in this unique environment leave no doubt that we are reading an autobiography, in some respects, to be sure.

Theodore Cohen's latest novel takes you from Wisconsin to Antarctica and back on a unique voyage that's part scientific expedition and part murder mystery. Drawn from real events in the author's life and a true crime drama that begins with an earthquake and resulting tsunami wreaking havoc on a certain Chilean bank. The story revolves around university student Ted Stone, who serendipitously lands a spot on an Antarctic expedition in 1960. Ted has various adventures en route to the base on the Antarctic peninsula, including a terrifying multi-day storm as his ship traverses the Drake Passage.

Upon his arrival, he becomes acquainted with his deadly environment and the unique breed of men that work there. Subzero temperatures, sudden storms, whiteout blizzards, icebergs and calving glaciers, leopard seals, orcas, sled dogs, ice fissures, and more. Every day is fight to survive, and new lessons are learned. Unbeknownst to Ted at first, a tale of greed and murder plays out on the base and on the ship that carries Ted and his team on various excursions into the field. Eventually, Ted gets caught up in the action, nearly losing his life for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I enjoyed learning about Antarctica, and the plot was intriguing. The book is very detailed and extensively footnoted, with fascinating facts about life in the extreme Antarctic environment. Although a bit slow to get going, it ends well for Ted, not so well for the greedy Chilean sailors, with twists and turns to keep you guessing. I'd recommend it to anyone planning to visit the Antarctic or who would like to learn about the frozen underside of our planet, or anyone who wants to read a different kind of murder mystery.
