"On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, in the years after World War I, a steamship approaches a desolate island far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man on his way to assume the post of weather official. Here he plans to live in solitude for a year at the cold end of the earth." "But onshore he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace - only the lighthouse, a deserted cabin, and the surrounding sea. And a mysterious castaway. Then night begins to fall."--BOOK JACKET.
