FROM BOOKER-LONGLISTED ED O’LOUGHLIN: THE PERFECT NOVEL FOR FANS OF AMY SACKVILLE’S THE STILL POINT AND FRANCIS SPUFFORD’S I MAY BE SOME TIME.

It begins with a chance encounter at the top of the world.

Fay Morgan and Nelson Nilsson have each arrived in Inuvik, Canada – 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle – searching for answers about a family member: Nelson for his estranged older brother, Fay for her disappeared grandfather. They soon learn that these two men have an unexpected link – a hidden share in one of the greatest enduring mysteries of polar exploration.
