About Dead Men|
"An expertly-told story that captures the detail and spirit of Antarctic exploration, then and now. Not only a compelling novel, but an excellent tribute to Scott and his men." Sir Ranulph Fiennes
"Dead Men is an emotional adventure and an unsettling ghost story. It’s an exploration of those two opposing magnetic forces – the one pulling us onward, and the one pulling us home – and a sympathetic salute to the flawed and foolhardy human spirit." Katie Ward, author of Girl Reading.
"A remarkable debut, Dead Men deserves to be read. It’s as simple as that. It will educate and entertain simultaneously, a clever blend of old and new, meticulously morphed to bring together a time forgotten. Told with tenderness and a respect I found touching this is one of my top reads of the year so far. Loved it." Milo's Rambles
"Dead Men grips in more ways than one. It is a historical puzzle but it is also a polar adventure, a love story, a horror story and a ghostly tale. It challenges the conventions of what one can expect from a historical mystery." For winter nights - a bookish blog
The discovery of Captain Scott’s body in the Antarctic in November 1912 started a global obsession with him as a man and an explorer. One mystery remains – why did he and his companions spend their last ten days in a tent 11 miles from the relative safety of a large food and fuel depot?
Birdie Bowers, an infamously secretive painter, is a woman with a dead man’s name. Her parents were obsessed by her namesake, Henry ‘Birdie’ Bowers, one of Scott’s companions. Almost a hundred years after his death, she is determined to discover what really happened to him. On her way to view some of the things recovered from Scott’s tent, she collapses, and is rescued by Adam, a bored computer geek, who falls in love with her, to the extent of agreeing to travel to the Antarctic with her to discover the site of Scott’s tent, now under 30 metres of ice.
