A tale of ambition and madness in the frozen seas of Antarctica.

A tale of ambition and madness in the frozen seas of Antarctica.In 1922 the polar exploration vessel RAVEN sailed from Hobart in the early hours of the morning, south into the icy embrace of the Antarctic Ocean. Neither she nor the 28 souls aboard her were ever seen again.

In 2005, during a visit to an Australian Antarctic station, a writer discover a long-lost journal - the only surviving artefact and evidence of the fate of the RAVEN expedition. It is a discovery that will consume his life and eat into his soul.

Into White Silence is the story of a collision between the past and the present, the folly of ambition, and the ghosts of the ice.
