This was a good story but at times seemed to take quite big leaps in the story where one was left to assume as to what had transpired to arrive at a particular juncture. The descriptions of the ice and the hardships of those on whaling vessels were very good and really saved the book as the story was quite obvious but drawn out. While I like the description of the ice, sea and bleakness it may not appeal to every one
He is to rendezvous with the factory ship, Southern Cross in the Antarctic. But what should be a routine voyage becomes a nightmare of intrigue and suspicion as Craig is pitchforked into a bitter struggle for control of the company's future. As the arctic winter closes in, Craig and the survivors of Southern Cross, now helplessly trapped in polar ice, face a battle for existence against not only the elements, but against human treachery and greed.
Excellent entertainment best to be read on a cold winter day. The reader, Mr Stephen Thorne, delivers a commendable performance and the range of the various accents in English he masters is quite extraordinary.
