The Dark by Emma Haughton

A gripping thriller set in the UN Research Station in Antarctica, this has all the elements of a classic whodunit; remote location with limited connection to the outside world, simmering tensions among a group of international strangers, a suspicious death and an unreliable narrator. With echoes of Agatha Christie, this makes compelling reading. Why does Kate see a fox staring at her in her dreams? What really happened to the doctor she replaced? Why is the Station Manager so hostile to her? And whereabouts in Donegal is Alex from? The bleakness, 24 hour darkness and mind numbing cold of Antarctica is so well evoked you’ll get literal chills!
