Crozier finds Terror Camp is devolving into chaos. A mutiny may be rearing its head.
Crozier orders the ships abandoned, then the crews travel to setup at Terror Camp on King William Island.
Cmdr. Fitzjames - in the absence of Crozier, drying out his alcoholism - must manage decaying rations and an antsy crew.
Crozier's crew are deteriorating, both mentally and physically. Just like Hickey and his party, in much worse ways.
Crozier is taken back to Hickey's mutineer camp, where he must try to save himself and as many of his remaining men as possible.
Another attack of the beast occurs. Goodsir learns more Inuktitut, and also finds more problems with the canned provisions.
Francis Crozier must now lead the ill-fated Arctic expedition, as more corpses turn up, and some of the men blame Lady Silence.
