The North Water by Ian McGuire

The North Water

Set on a whaling ship headed for the arctic circle, The North Water is a gripping, gritty thriller I found hard to put down.  Patrick Sumner, the ex-army surgeon discovers a young cabin boy brutally raped and obviously beaten, and is determined to find the culprit.  As the story unfolds, we are privy to murder, a fight for survival and a mystery.  This was an excellent work of historical fiction, and worthy of all the awards it was nominated for, including the Man Booker Prize.
