Summary

From the best-selling author of Schindler's List.

In the bitter Antarctic winter of 1910, in the waning years of the Edwardian era, a group of gentleman adventurers wait out a raging blizzard in the close, perpetual darkness, poised for a strike at the South Pole. As the storm lifts, a new challenge faces Captain Sir Eugene Stewart - to discover which of his 25 carefully chosen men has become a murderer, as what has begun as a probe for the bottom of the world becomes a probe for the bottom of man's soul.
