A morose WWI veteran travels thousands of miles by steamship to accept the position of Weather Official on an isolated, Antarctic island. The island's only other resident is a demented lighthouse keeper. Or so it seems. Within hours of assuming his post, our unnamed protagonist is beset by unimaginable horrors. His only hope for survival is to forge an alliance with the unstable freak in the fortified lighthouse and hope that, together, they can withstand the unrelenting siege for a full year, when a ship will be dispatched to return the Weather Official to civilization. Surprising, fast-paced and genre defying, this uncanny little book will keep you riveted to the very last page.
