An Edie Kiglatuk Mystery
M.J. McGrath

The Iditarod dog sled race forms the perfect backdrop for McGrath's second mystery to feature half-Inuit guide Edie Kiglatuk (first seen in White Heat, 2011). In Alaska to assist her ex-husband Sammy in his quest to win the race, Edie inadvertently stumbles upon the frozen body of a baby boy. With the help of her friend, police sergeant Derek Palliser, Edie attempts to untangle the truth behind the baby's death. But just as she begins to get some answers, Edie finds herself confronted by a painful secret from her past. Utterly riveting.
