Publisher's Summary

When retired police detective Joe Heller is called in to investigate what might be Antarctica's first murder, he quickly discovers that winter at McMurdo Station comes with a unique set of challenges: darkness, isolation, and the eccentric behavior of the research facility's 157 inhabitants. But a difficult investigation turns much tougher when all communication with the outside world is suddenly cut off.

While Heller works diligently to reconstruct the scene of the crime, evidence mounts that a pathogenic event could be ravaging the rest of the planet. As night descends, fear mounts, and confusion reigns, the killer strikes again. If this is a global cataclysm, is someone now picking off the human race's few remaining survivors? Is this the end of the world - or just the end of Joe Heller's?

For Puzzle Lovers

Stone places you inside the story, and with a cop's eye view; doggedly chewing on facts and interested, before you even realize how clever the plot or how good the writing.

Good book

We enjoyed the story very much. The only down side was at times there was way to much description about other things and not just the story.

Interesting But

Very interesting plot ruined by too much introspection by mane character. He goes on and on about everything making a boring read
