I'm not a fan of ghost stories, but I like the odd one or two and this one is no exception. A crossover/adult novel which definitely gave me the creeps and I'm not easily moved. Set in Spitsbergen in 1937, 5 young hopefuls plan a geographical expedition to study weather, glaciers etc, but just before departure two have to drop out and three set off. The Norwegian ship captain is reluctant to take them to their exact destination, but with much persuasion eventually does, without telling them the reason for his reluctance. However once there, Jack Miller starts to experience strange feelings and premonitions which he records in his diary. When another colleague gets sick and the two of them have to depart for a while, Jack offers to stay and as it approaches the time of year for perpetual darkness, so his fears, imaginings and visions increase. He discovers that the area is believed to be haunted by a former miner who was murdered, but is it, or is it the madness of lonliness and darkness setting in? A very good read, keeping you gripped as the ending approaches and not at all fully predicatble. More please. Also remind me of The Solitude of Thomas Cave.
