David Botham’s relatively normal life is turned upside down the moment he attends a writing group. A book title he comes up with in the spur of the moment seems to be already in use in the form of an online blog – one that depicts cruel murders throughout the city. Mind reeling, David recognises the victims – people he’s come into contact with – and so is appalled to discover their actual fate. Nothing adds up though, because he’s not the one writing the posts, or is he?
Anders Nordvelt arrives, newly promoted, at Australis, a mining base located in the desolate plains of Antarctica. As Chief of Security, it’s his responsibility to make daily life is as smooth as possible for the crew, however it’s soon apparent he’s not welcome. Complicated relationships and old resentment are just the beginning however, as when the night shift begins, so does the sabotage. The very future of humanity falls upon Anders, and he struggles to discover the traitor of the project.
