Great Scott! Fantastic read - I highly recommend it...., 24 July 2012
Dead Men is a most enjoyable read and I highly recommend it. A brilliant mix of fiction, fact and fascination as to why Captain Scott and his team spent their last ten days in a tent when they could have found safety only 11 miles away. The modern day setting mixed with the historical backdrop made for an interesting and thought provoking read. Richard Pierce has an easy style of writing and captures what might have happened in a very plausible and highly descriptive way. Helped by the fact that he has visited the Antartic and has been in Scott's hut makes the story all the more credible. Well done - an author who really knows his stuff! I loved the current day characters of Birdie and Adam especially as Birdie was so quirky - I would like to read more about them. Perhaps a sequel?? If you are looking for a good holiday read or something to capture your imagination then Dead Men is for you.
