    Summary

    Winters in the Arctic are long and lonely, especially for a Captain who is a drunkard who is missing the embrace of someone who may or may not love him. There is little solace is to be found on a ship frozen in the ice for Francis Crozier. However, console does take a most peculiar form in his steward Thomas Jopson, a man with whom such bleak surroundings are familiar.

    But this is a different time, at the other end of the world. Some emotions cannot always be trusted nor indulged in due to their stakes, no matter what lines are crossed. At least, that is what Crozier tells himself as he becomes more infatuated by Jopson's presence.

    Summary

    “This string of killings is unlike anything I have ever seen in my ten years as a detective in the homicide unit. We are begging the public. If you know anything you are asked to contact the authorities immediately…”

    “Good evening…” The music quiets just enough for this new voice to be heard. “I am your host, J.C.R, and this… is the Investigator podcast; a show that dares to explore the dark. On this week’s episode, I want to discuss a case that has been unfolding a little too close to home. As of now, no suspects have been named or arrested. Justice is slipping away from these victims and their families... But first, I want to talk about this week’s sponsor!” 

    James Clark Ross is a popular true-crime podcast host.
    His fiancée, Anne Coulman is convinced their new home is haunted.
    And his best friend, Francis Crozier is missing.

    Summary

    “What would you have done?” asked James, at length. “If we hadn’t made it back.”

    Summary

    James could not see him as a man weak in his vices, because Francis Crozier was not weak. James would say so even without the charm of friendship before his eyes. It was no bad thing to have faith in your friends; he knew that Ann would say it was a good fault to have, even if it made a man foolish.

    Summary

    "The pocket-watch is an heirloom and one I trust to you with great reservation. It is one of a precious few in existence and cannot be replicated nor bought at any easy cost. Its nature is both macabre and enlightening, as you will no doubt soon discover. You will find it easy to use and unusually responsive to its purpose. Indeed, it has done its job very well in the past and may yet do so again on farther shores."

    Sir James Clark Ross goes north to uncover a mystery.
