In this fascinating tale of a voyage to the icy waters of the Svalbard archipelago, Wale imbues Nick Allen with charm and dispassion. Nick is attempting to find out what happened to his friend, Guy Edwardes, who sailed to the Arctic alone and came back to commit suicide. Karen, Guy's longtime partner, accompanies Nick. Wale's subdued and sensitive reading captures the emotion of Karen's desperate search for answers, as well as Nick's cool-headed logical perspective. Wale conveys the atmospheric feel of their voyage of discovery and the tragedy of Guy's death. His natural delivery sounds as if he's relating his own experience.
