On a wild stretch of the Yukon River, Lydia Falkner steers her skiff toward a secluded log cabin, her summer home and special sanctuary. The peace she seeks there is immediately shattered when she discovers the gruesome murder of her beloved friend, Frank Johnson, whose body she finds buried in a trash pile. Why would anyone target this gentle, eccentric homesteader? But this is the first question of many. Frank’s personal papers reflect an obsession with caribou. Why? An unusual structure is being built in a remote Arctic village. What is it for? Is there any connection between Frank and a missing seal hunter?

Initially guided by Frank’s own cryptic words, Lydia is pulled into an ever-widening conspiracy born of greed, deceit, and betrayal. Her search for answers carries her many miles through the wild and magnificent landscapes of northwest Canada and central Alaska. Each journey yields new revelations, and each revelation brings increasing danger until Lydia faces something completely unexpected.

    Très bon suspense

    Roman policier bien écrit et qui nous tient en haleine lors de la recherche d'un meurtrier. Paysages bien décrits, saveur environnementaliste bien posée en conjonction avec la garde des valeurs sociales et culturelles des populations du nord. Avec en filigrane la recherche de son identité d'une professeure d'anglais, le roman est ficelé adéquatement et est plein d'humanité. Je le recommande!!!
