By piecing together historical accounts, it sets out to discover the story of James Knight, who sailed into Hudson Bay in 1619, never to be seen again. It supplements this with an account of 4 seasons of largely archaeological discovery at Marble Island, the known location of Knight's demise. Whereas 'Frozen in Time' is more like a treasure hunt culminating in the exhumation of Franklin expedition members' bodies in a preserved state, 'Dead Silence' is a much more static affair. The research is meticulous, but the book of the research is written in a more turgid style, never really comes to life, and has a relatively inconclusive end.
The book serves as a first-rate historical account, but it does not excite. But do read 'Frozen in Time'.
