When Guy Edwardes returns from a single-handed yachting voyage to the Arctic, he is a changed man. Then tragedy strikes and his long-term partner, Karen, and a friend, Nick Allan, try to find out what happened on his trip. Nick attempts to piece together a chain of events and make sense of Guy's conduct, unveiling the story of a man's soul stripped bare. This is a powerful tale of a voyage to the icy waters of the Svalbard archipelago, a yarn of friendship and of human endeavour.
Once again, Richard Woodman conjures credible human characters in a novel of unusual power, mirroring in the fate of a single man the obscured plight of many more.
