Kirkus Book Review

A remote Alaskan area is the backdrop to disappearances and deaths. Beth Rivers fled to Benedict after having been kidnapped and badly injured escaping her captor. Well-known as novelist Elizabeth Fairchild, she's taken care to change her appearance in her new home and keep her secret from everyone but police chief Grilson Samuels. Beth runs a local newspaper and writes in secret while cautiously making new friends. When two filthy, nonverbal young girls turn up at her office, she calls Gril, who arrives with news of an unidentified frozen body. Having helped Gril before using talents she developed working with her grandfather, another police chief, Beth offers her help again. Since many residents live in far-flung cabins in the deep woods, secrets are easy to keep in Benedict, and almost everyone is hiding something. Back in the Lower 48, Beth's police liaison, Detective Majors, has come up with shocking news about her kidnapper, restarting Beth's traumatic flashbacks as she fights to maintain her mental equilibrium. Finding out who the little girls are turns out to be the easy part of Beth's new investigation, which uncovers clues from the past that provide the key to countering ever more dangerous threats. A gritty heroine fights for truth and justice in a world filled with darkness and flashes of hope and beauty. Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
