Searching for a book title from a plot description?
I've been looking for a book I've previously read for a while now, but haven't been able to figure out the title at all.
The basic premise of the plot was that there has been a mysterious death at a research station in the Arctic/Antarctica, and I don't remember why the victims were killed, but the method used to kill them was to grind up some moss/lichen/other from under the ice shelves and add it to the talcum powder people were using to put their snow suits on.
I think maybe it killed them by absorbing all the oxygen in their blood?
If anyone can assist me with the title I would greatly appreciate it.

Travis, I poked around a little and didn't find it. I was surprised how many murder mysteries there seem to be with an Arctic setting.
But there are other places you can ask.

http://www.librarything.com/groups/namethatbook is a large Library Thing group, many of them librarians, who help solve title mysteries. Maybe ask here first?
