From the Editor

For nine months a year, researchers in Antarctica are unreachable to the outside world—remote, isolated, and living in perpetual night. On the first day of this “winter-over season,” the body of a murdered woman is found, and then immediately concealed. No investigation, no explanation.

And just like that The Winter Over had me hooked.

Cass, the site engineer, arrives at the Shackleton South Pole Research Facility seeking complete anonymity and an escape from her traumatic past. Given her shaky state of mind, she can hardly believe she passed the psych test necessary to secure a spot at the station.

After the last flight off the island leaves, the crew begins to experience strange incidents that don’t add up.

As I compulsively turned the pages, an uncertain feeling grew in me. Is this whole thing a setup, or maybe Cass isn’t telling us everything? But why? The sense of complete isolation and steady ratcheting of tension gave me a knot in my stomach the way almost nothing has since the first time I read And Then There Were None or watched Alien. I was on that station. Cold. Paranoid. Surrounded by darkness.


To be fair, I am predisposed to love this story—ask me about my Edgar Allan Poe obsession—but Matthew Iden has some tricks up his sleeve for us. Just when I thought I knew what this book was, it became something else entirely.

- Jacque Ben-Zekry, Editor

About the Author

Matthew Iden is the prolific author of the Marty Singer detective series—A Reason to Live, Blueblood, One Right Thing, The Spike, The Wicked Flee, and Once Was Lost—as well as several acclaimed stand-alone novels. Iden’s eclectic resume includes jobs with the US Postal Service, international nonprofit groups, a short stint with the Forest Service in Sitka, Alaska, and time with the globe-spanning Semester at Sea program. Trips to Iceland, Patagonia, and Antarctica have given him a world of inspiration. Iden currently lives in Northern Virginia—close enough to the woods to keep his sanity, close enough to the Washington, DC, Capital Beltway to lose it.
