‘In an instant, her breath left her and a burning, tightening sensation shot up her spine. She blinked, trying to make the terrible thing go away, but when she opened her eyes it was still there……….’
When Arctic guide, Edie Kiglatuk stumbles across a tiny corpse abandoned in the Alaskan forest, she little imagines what her discovery will lead her to.
Edie, half-Inuit and half-outsider is helping her ex-husband Sammy in his bid to win Alaska’s famous sled race, the Iditarod. It is a dangerous race, travelling across some of the world’s toughest and most deadly terrain.
But Edie cannot get the image of the frozen child out of her mind. Before long she will set off on an investigation which will take her into a dark world of politics, corruption and greed – as a painful secret in her past finally catches up with her.
This is the second novel written by MJ McGrath and is the compelling follow-up to her debut novel, White Heat.
