U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko tracks a killer in Antarctica, as the sun is about to set for six months. - Michael Weihn

U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko is three days from the end of her tour at an international research station in Antarctica after which she'll resign. An incident from her past haunts her. The continent's first winter storm is coming when a body, wearing no gear, is discovered in the tundra. She investigates, soon finds more bodies, and must find a motive and a murderer before the storm and her departure. A U.N. agent, Robert Pryce, appears, seemingly out of nowhere, to help. An aging physician about to retire, a nervous mission chief, a downed Soviet plane, and the weather's deadly elements add to the story. Can Carrie trust Pryce and does she still have what it takes?

US Marshal Carrie Stetko has been stationed at the Amundsen-Scott Base in Antarctica for two years, and will quit the Marshal service and head home to Miami in a few days. She originally took the job as something mindless to escape a professional situation which made her question her on-the-job judgment. Her plans change when a dead body is found on the ice outside. Upon investigation by the base physician "Doc" John Fury, the dead man was found to be murdered. The dead man is Anton Weiss, one of a crew of three geologists stationed at a nearby base, they who were searching for meteorites. Although it means staying at the base for at least another six months due to an on-coming storm and impending winter, Carrie decides to stay to complete the investigation of the case. Much to her chagrin, the United Nations sends a special envoy, Robert Pryce, to investigate as well, he states because it is the first ever murder in Antarctica which in and of itself warrants special attention, although there are ulterior motives to his participation which he does not initially divulge. Carrie and Robert's first mission is to find the other two geologists who probably know what is going on. But they also have to be mindful that the murderer is still on the loose, he or she by his or her very presence who endangers the lives of all those on the confined base. If they do discover the entire truth, they will find that the motive to the murderer goes deeper than it appears on the surface. - Huggo
