Glacier of Death started from an idea I had on my last trip to Canada; we were flying over the ice fields and looking down at all the whiteness, I realised how easy it would be to go snow blind and end up wandering around lost.
The original story line was to have been about a convict escaping from his captors on the way to jail in Edmonton, Alberta.
The crux of the story would have been the man chasing him, not only had to race the weather but time, as he was close to retirement. Forsaking modern appliances, the chase would be mountie Vs criminal-old style tracking.
Even after I started the revised version I had no plans to tie it in with Nerja http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007ODWS4C , the revised story had been intended for a rescue of the plane carrying a criminal on the glacier.
