Coleman has led or participated in four expeditions to find out the fate of the Franklin expedition. 129 men were lost from the two ships the Erebus and the Terror, looking for the North West Passage. Many theories have been put forward—and some of them, in the author's opinion, have been shaped by political bias.

In this work, Coleman is determined to set the record straight: “I have provided answers to all their machinations (including the 'lead poisoning' tripe, and the 'cannibalism' nonsense) cracked the code in the writings of Petty Officer Peglar (bones found and wallet recovered), and given new answers to all the many smaller mysteries that continue to be reproduced by others. I have also revealed the possible site of Franklin's grave, the biggest mystery of all.”

Coleman's lifetime quest for the truth at the ends of the earth is an extraordinary tale of determination in itself. The story of Franklin's expedition remains one of the greatest and most tragic events of the age of exploration.
