End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences
"[I]t is the juxtaposition of factual and imaginary detail, real and fictitious characters, each underscored by footnotes or website research, that gives Theodore Cohen's work a "signature style" [that is] quite unique, enjoyable and thoroughly ingenious."
"End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences," is Book III of the Antarctic Murders Trilogy. In many ways, it brings to an end three things: the sagas of Captain Roberto Munoz of the "Lientur," the hunt for the millions of dollars in U.S. and British cash, negotiable securities, gold coins, and jewelry stolen from the Banco Central de Chile following the Chilean Earthquake of May, 1960, and the murders that followed the robbery. Book I: "Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World," introduced American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris, who, while performing geological and geophysical field work with the assistance of Captain Roberto Munoz of the Chilean auxiliary tug "Lientur," were caught up in the hunt for the robbers and the spoils from the robbery, and murder. "Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer," introduced Captain Mateo Valderas and Lieutenant-Commander Antonio Del Rio of the Chilean Navy's Office of Internal Affairs. Initially assigned to solve a murder in Arica, they soon found themselves facing perhaps the most vicious, cunning thief and murderer they ever encountered. The return of American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris to Santiago for the purpose of helping personnel of the University of Chile prepare for the 20th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic, beginning in December 1965, jeopardizes the lives of both scientists. What irrational acts will elicit the tragic consequences that finally bring everything to an end? For the answer, read Book III: "End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences."
"Cutting-edge drama and suspense, revealing characters through convincing dialog, provides the Antarctic Murders Trilogy with all the elements of award-winning, best-selling novels."
