Summary
Sir John Franklin's fateful 1845 expedition to find the Northwest Passage ended in mystery and tragedy. Both British ships and all 129 men were lost to the ice, and no word was ever heard of any survivors. Yet a century and a half later the discovery in London of an uncanny relic -- a Royal Navy chronometer issued to the expedition, still in working order but disguised as a carriage clock -- raises new questions about what really happened to Franklin and his men. In present day Arctic Canada two unlikely fellow travelers find themselves entangled in this same enigma. Fay Morgan has just arrived from London, looking for information about her long-lost grandfather. Nelson Nilsson, a Canadian drifter, has come north to join his brother, only to find that he has disappeared. In a narrative that crosses time and space, they find themselves drawn into an epic quest to unravel the strands of a generations-old mystery, a riddle that has mesmerized and haunted some of history's most intrepid polar explorers
