Just arrived from Australia through BM.

This is the story of the new British South Polar expedition in 1910 when Captain Eugene Stewart is challenged to find the murder among his crew of Victor Henneker, an expedition journalist.

The book is very well written and describes the rigors and loneliness of the Antarctic wastes.

Among the narrative, two interesting books are mentioned by the author, such as: The Sea Wolf by Jack London and Trilby by George du Maurier.

Now I must read some book by Ernest Shackleton in order to have a better description of the exploration of the Antarctic's continent.
