Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] thrilling tale of science’s hunt to solve one of naval history’s greatest riddles…[Watson’s] intimate familiarity with key players and places gives the reader an insider’s view of the operations."
Gemma Tarlach, Discover Magazine

"An incredible yarn."
Matthew Price, Boston Globe

"Fascinating."
Bill Streever, Dallas Morning News

"A splendid achievement."
Ken McCoogan, Toronto Globe & Mail

"Intriguing [and] enjoyable…While there have been many previous books about the Franklin expedition and its mysterious fate, the notable originality of
Ice Ghosts lies in the fact that it brings the story right up-to-date…Franklin aficionados will certainly want to add it to their libraries."
Ian McGuire, New York Times Book Review

"Riveting."
Booklist

"Engaging… A keen, entertaining chronicle of the various attempts to locate a sensationally doomed expedition."
Kirkus (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
