The Winter Over
By Matthew Iden
Imagine a winter in the most isolated place in the world with forty others. Imagine no contact with the outside world for months on end.
Imagine when things go wrong, starting with a suspicious death, power failures, and crazy’s running around loose.
This is ‘The Winter Over’. Set in the Antarctic isolated base ‘Shackleton Research Base’, the plot follows Cass Jennings, a mechanic trying to escape her own past, as she stumbles through firstly a murder, then many other issues and problems that cripple the base. Never knowing who to turn to.
The story is well written, taking the reader in with a mixture of strong, but strange characters all facing their own demons. Coupled with a fast-moving plot.
An excellent read.
