The Ice by Laline Paull - 1st edition, signed

£9.99

Product description

Novel, in which human intrigue is mixed with climate change. Illustrated with engravings by Chris Wormell and an outline map of the Arctic area by Joy Gosney. It's the day after tomorrow and the Arctic sea ice has melted. While global business carves up the new frontier, cruise ships race each other to ever-rarer wildlife sightings. The passengers of the Vanir have come seeking a polar bear. What they find is even more astonishing: a dead body. It is Tom Harding, lost in an accident three years ago and now revealed by the melting ice of Midgard glacier. Tom had come to Midgard to help launch the new venture of his best friend of thirty years, Sean Cawson, a man whose business relies on discretion and powerful connections - and who was the last person to see him alive. Their friendship had been forged by a shared obsession with Arctic exploration, and although Tom's need to save the world often clashed with Sean's desire to conquer it, Sean has always believed that underneath it all, they shared the same goals. As the inquest into Tom's death begins, however, the choices made by both men - in love and in life - are put on the stand, and when cracks appear in the foundations of Sean's glamorous world, he is forced to question what price he has really paid for a seat at the establishment's table. Just how deep do the lies go?

Dark blue cloth binding with silver-coloured lettering and publisher motif to spine and silver-coloured illustration of Arctic ice scene to front cover; blue pictorial dust-jacket with cut-out to front revealing ice scene on front cover; ice-blue stained page edges; author signature to title page.

Very good condition for a second-hand book: very light edge-wear to dust-jacket, mainly to top edge; very light self-wear to hardcovers and spine, very light slanting to spine; internally fine.
