This month’s book

The Trudeau Vector by Juris Jurjevics

As an international team of scientists at the spectacular Trudeau Research Centre prepare for six months of unrelenting Arctic winter, three of their colleagues are found dead on the ice, their pupils missing, their bodies contorted in ghastly, unnatural positions, hardened from the inside out.

Cause of death: unknown. Dr Jessica Hanley, a talented and unorthodox American epidemiologist, is summoned to the isolated station to investigate the cause of these grisly deaths before the unthinkable becomes reality. Halfway around the world in Moscow, Admiral Rudenko, well past retirement age, is summoned to locate a submarine that has suddenly and inexplicably disappeared in the waters he once knew well – the Norwegian fjords. Ideally suited to this sensitive assignment and conveniently expendable, Rudenko must locate and retrieve this rogue ship at any cost. Their missions will converge explosively in the unforgiving extremes of the Arctic night.
