Synopsis

Meg Harris, an amateur sleuth who drinks a little too much and is afraid of the dark, returns to her home in the West Quebec wilderness after a trip. Upon her arrival she discovers that a friend's daughter has been missing from the Migiskan Reserve for more than two months. Meg vows to help find the missing girl and starts by confronting the police on their indifference to the disappearance. During her investigation, Meg discovers that more than one Native woman has gone missing. Fearing the worst, Meg delves deeper and finds herself confronting an underside of life she would rather not know existed.

This is the fifth instalment in the acclaimed Meg Harris series. Arctic Blue Death, the previous title, was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel. The other Meg Harris novels are The River Runs Orange, Red Ice for a Shroud, and Death's Golden Whisper.

Reviewing the Evidence

Kudos to Harlick for not allowing Meg to travel alone to the remote location she suspects the missing girl has been taken.
