Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer
Book II in the Antarctic Murders Trilogy
picks up the story
begun in Book I with the return of the crate containing Señora
Rodriguez' refrigerator from Antarctica to Arica aboard Corvette Captain
Roberto Muñoz' ship, the Lientur
. What makes Señora Rodriguez'
refrigerator so special is that, unbeknownst to her, it holds the spoils
from a major bank robbery in Talcahuano, Chile, which occurred in the
aftermath of the Great Chilean Earthquake of May 22, 1960. But in
addition to Señora Rodríguez' husband, the two men who committed the
robbery, Chief Warrant Officer Raul Lucero and Chief Petty Officer
Eduardo Bellolio, and the officer who was trailing them, Lieutenant
Barbudo, are dead.
Mystery/Thriller/Suspense/Horror: Honorable Mention
the two Navy non-commissioned officers from Santiago who secretly
played a part in tipping off Lucero and Bellolio to the fact that
Commander Barbudo was closing in on them have travelled to Arica to
obtain the release of the refrigerator from the Fleet Warehouse. It is
their intent to steal the loot before they deliver the appliance to
Señora Rodríguez. In the process, something goes terribly wrong.
, like Frozen in Time
is a work of fiction based on real events that took place between 1960
and 1965. It is a tale of greed, betrayal, danger and murder-one in
which the reader is given a window into the frozen world at the bottom
of the Earth that few people will ever read about, much less experience.
It explores why, though seemingly unfair, bad things happen to good
people; how the battle between good and evil can change forever even the
most innocent person; and most of all, the role deception plays in
Nature, Man, and Life.

"The more I read of Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer,
Book II of the Antarctic Murders Trilogy, the more I just had to know
about what happened to the stolen loot that catapulted me into the Book

wait too long for what no doubt awaits readers in Book III!"
