What I liked
Setting was in Antarctica where they had months of darkness
A closed room kind of murder mystery
The MC was a doctor
Increasing body count
Pregnancy and premature birth. Cesarian done in unbelievable circumstances.
What I didn’t like
MC kept popping pills like nobody’s business even from the locked pharmacy
NOT so intelligent MC
She kept grating on my nerves
Slow burn mystery
Reason for murders was not strong.
Overall, can be read if gotten free or from library

ONE DEAD BODY. TWELVE SUSPECTS. TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR DARKNESS.
‘Outstanding … Haughton writes vividly about a claustrophobic community … her novel really is a superlative locked-room mystery‘ Sunday Times (Crime Book of the Month)
‘Haughton has created a fantastically atmospheric setting … it’s a chilling race to the finish to discover whodunnit’ Observer
In the most inhospitable environment – cut off from the rest of the world – there’s a killer on the loose.
A&E doctor Kate North has been knocked out of her orbit by a personal tragedy. So when she’s offered the opportunity to be an emergency replacement at the UN research station in Antarctica, she jumps at the chance. The previous doctor, Jean-Luc, died in a tragic accident while out on the ice.
The move seems an ideal solution for Kate: no one knows about her past; no one is checking up on her. But as total darkness descends for the winter, she begins to suspect that Jean-Luc’s death wasn’t accidental at all.
And the more questions she asks, the more dangerous it becomes . . .

I downloaded a digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
