Richard Wardour leaves England on a voyage to the African coast under the impression he is engaged to delicate orphan Clara Burnham. Despite sending him a letter stating the contrary Clara is anxious for her honour. She is aware that he may not have received the missive and is now betrothed to another, Frank Aldersley.

When Richard returns and is refused, he immediately sets sail on an expedition to the Arctic, unaware that in the same party is Clara's accepted lover.

The expedition fails, the ships are marooned on the ice and Wardour and Aldersley, the spurned and the successful, are sent across the treacherous ice to reach the nearest settlement and effect a rescue!'The Frozen Deep' was first performed as a play (once by Royal command), as a reading in America by the author himself and finally written as prose. It reinforces Wilkie Collins' reputation as the 'novelist who invented sensation'.

About the Author
Author Wilkie Collins

Wilkie Collins (1824–1889) studied law and was admitted to the bar but never practiced. Instead, he devoted his time to writing and is best known for his novels The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, and The Moonstone, which has been called the finest detective story ever written. A number of his works were collaborations with his close friend, Charles Dickens. The Woman in White so gripped the imagination of the world that Wilkie Collins had his own tombstone inscribed: “Author of The Woman in White.”
