The dogsled team pictured in the header of the website is one of two belonging to the British Antarctic Survey that swept by Base O’Higgins in January, 1962, on an expedition down the North Antarctic Peninsula. I happened to spot them one morning when I woke up. I grabbed my camera, climbed the Continental Glacier, and spent a few minutes chatting with them before they drove south. There’s a passage in Frozen in Time drawn from this encounter. That’s not me waving from the dogsled (unfortunately ... I would have loved to have tried that).

End Game

End Game:
Irrational Acts,
Tragic Consequences

Book III in the Antarctic Murders Trilogy

In many ways, End Game brings to an end three things: the sagas of Captain Roberto Muñoz of the Lientur; the hunt for the millions of dollars in U.S. and British cash, negotiable securities, gold coins, and jewelry stolen from the Banco Central de Chile following the Chilean Earthquake of May, 1960; and the murders that follow the robbery.

Jack Eadon Award for the
Best Book in Contemporary Drama
Book I: Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World, introduced American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris, who, while performing geological and geophysical field work with the assistance of Captain Roberto Muñoz of the Chilean auxiliary tug Lientur, were caught up in the hunt for the robbers (and the spoils from the robbery) and murder.

Book II: Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer, introduced Captain Mateo Valderas and Lieutenant-Commander Antonio Del Río of the Chilean Navy's Office of Internal Affairs. Initially assigned to solve a murder in Arica, they soon found themselves facing perhaps the most vicious, cunning thief and murderer they have ever encountered.

The return of American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris to Santiago for the purpose of helping personnel of the University of Chile prepare for the 20th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic, beginning in December 1965, jeopardizes the lives of both scientists. What 'irrational acts' will elicit the 'tragic consequences' that finally bring everything to an end? This answer and more are in Book III: End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences.

Praise for End Game

"If you want an enigmatic, exciting, yet somehow relaxing mystery, End Game will take you from the depths of an Antarctic crevasse to the top of the steeple of the Church of Saint Francis—La Iglesia de San Francisco—in search of the evil secrets of Captain Roberto Muñoz ... a man who cut his teeth at the feet of the insidious Larenas cartel!" ~ Deb Fowler, Feathered Quill Book Reviews
