The Arctic Fury

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
A dozen women join a secret 1850s Arctic expedition—and a sensational murder trial unfolds when some of them don't come back.

Eccentric Lady Jane Franklin makes an outlandish offer to adventurer Virginia Reeve: take a dozen women, trek into the Arctic, and find her husband's lost expedition. Four parties have failed to find him, and Lady Franklin wants a radical new approach: put the women in charge.

A year later, Virginia stands trial for murder. Survivors of the expedition willing to publicly support her sit in the front row. There are only five. What happened out there on the ice?

Set against the unforgiving backdrop of one of the world's most inhospitable locations, USA Today bestselling author Greer Macallister uses the true story of Lady Jane Franklin's tireless attempts to find her husband's lost expedition as a jumping-off point to spin a tale of bravery, intrigue, perseverance and hope.

Genre: Historical

Praise for this book

"In her enthralling new novel, The Arctic Fury, Greer Macallister takes her readers on a thrilling, if arduous, journey to the Arctic north, alongside Virginia Reeve and her all female expedition in a quest to find the ships of a lost explorer. Through alternating glimpses into the voyage itself and the murder trial afterwards, the enterprise and its secrets -- both tantalizing and terrorizing -- reveal themselves in turn, sweeping readers along until they reach the story's spell-binding conclusion. A captivating look at the manner in which the 'truth' is formed by the lens through which it is perceived, a lens formed by time, place, and views on women." - Marie Benedict

"Greer Macallister pens a nail-biter that makes you want to stand up and cheer." - Kate Quinn

"An unforgiving, snow-dazzling landscape, a cast of extraordinary, fierce women, and a nail-biting courtroom drama that wrecked my nails makes this historical gem unputdownable!" - Kim Michele Richardson
