Summary :

Tim Cornish, a creative writing student, sits composing a confession: an admission of a crime committed two years ago that has yet to be discovered.

It began when he first encountered Ivo, a magnetic man, older than himself, and felt compelled to kiss him. By the time they travel together to Alaska's glacial wastes, Tim has fallen in and out of love with Ivo; his real passion is now only for Isabel whom he met in Ivo's absence. The horror of Tim's subsequent journey with Ivo, battling with disgust and despair, may endure in his memory for ever.
