White HeatBook - 2011
Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger Award, "White Heat" is the first book in the gripping Edie Kiglatuk Mystery Series, with "an Arctic setting so real it'll give you frostbite" (Dana Stabenow, author of "A Cold Day for Murder")
Half Inuit and half outsider, Edie Kiglatuk is the best guide in her corner of the Arctic. But as a woman, she gets only grudging respect from her community's Council of Elders. While Edie is leading two tourists on a hunting expedition, one of them is shot and killed. The Council wants to call it an accident, but Edie and police sergeant Derek Palliser suspect otherwise. When the other tourist disappears, Edie sets off into the far reaches of the tundra for answers.
A stunning debut novel, "White Heat" launches a formidable new series set amidst an unforgiving landscape of ice and rock, of spirit ancestors, and never-rotting bones.
