Thin Ice is set in Greenland, 1940. Cut off from civilisation and surrounded by ice, Daniel sits frozen to death in a tiny hut. As Richard and Laura arrive too late to rescue him, the body thaws and secrets surface threatening their marriage, beliefs and ultimately their survival.
A wartime thriller and polar love story, Thin Ice is a darkly comic exploration of people finding courage in the face of adversity. It is inspired by the true story of the 'weather war' when the British and the Germans fought over Arctic bases, allowing them to predict European weather patterns.
