Multi-award-winning author Tom Palmer returns with a thrilling naval adventure inspired by the incredible history of the Second World War Arctic convoys.

Winter 1943. Teenagers Frank, Joseph and Stephen are Royal Navy recruits on their first mission at sea during the Second World War. Their ship is part of an Arctic Convoy sailing to Russia to deliver supplies to the Soviets. The convoys have to navigate treacherous waters, sailing through a narrow channel between the Arctic ice pack and German bases on the Norwegian coast. Faced with terrifying enemy attacks from both air and sea, as well as life-threatening cold and storms, will all three boys make it home again?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I'm awestruck by his ability to make history come alive and resonate emotionally in beautifully compact prose ... written dramatically and sensitively; Palmer's writing is sharp like a chisel, finding the heart under the harsh cold of war" -- Chris Soul
"Historical fiction doesn't get much better than this" -- LoveReading4Kids
"Artful descriptions ensure that we wholly experience each sensation - from grief to brutal cold - with the characters, and (as always with Tom Palmer) we finish knowing, and caring, much more than when we started" -- Roaring Reads, Blog
"Had me on the edge of my seat" -- Dan Smith
