Publisher's Summary

Alec Ramsey is the survivor of a disastrous Antarctic expedition which abandoned his revered friend and leader of the party, Stephen Leeming. For 40 years, in the security of academia, Ramsey has nurtured with guilt his doubts about this incident. Now Leeming's body is, against all odds, to be exhumed from the Antarctic icecap, and Ramsey must confront his obsession and decide whether he really did - or can continue to - survive at all.

Critic Reviews

"His tone is often wry, sometimes faintly cynical, but his purpose is always investigatory.… It is a fine and truthful balance." ( The Times of London)
