(From the publisher):
IN THIS CHILLING SUPERNATURAL THRILLER, SPANNING FIVE CONTINENTS AND SEVERAL CENTURIES, ROBERT MASELLO WEAVES TOGETHER AN EXTRAORDINARY TALE OF ETERNAL LIFE AND UNDYING LOVE.
Troubled journalist Michael Wilde takes on a commission to write a feature about a remote research station deep in the frozen beauty of Antarctica. On a diving expedition in the polar sea he discovers two bodies encased in ice. The pair are brought to the surface - along with a trunk containing a strange and sinister cargo.
As the ice around them begins to thaw, the mystery of these time- bound lovers begins to unravel. Michael is gradually drawn into a horrific story that started in 1850s London and led to the bloody battlefields of the Crimea and the tragic Charge of the Light Brigade.
Now, in the Antarctic wastes, the cavalry officer and his lover are reawakened into a world where the midnight sun lasts for months, where there’s nowhere to hide and no place left for the living to run...
