Newenham is an ice-bound bush town with a six-bed jail, a busted ATM, and a saloon that does double-duty as a courtroom. It’s a wide-enough patch to warrant a state police presence, though, and Trooper Liam Campbell is it. Campbell has been exiled from Anchorage to Newenham in disgrace, busted down from sergeant to trooper in the aftermath of a mistake that cost lives, to spend some time in the wilderness. Campbell didn’t expect the job to be simple, and it hasn’t been. From the (literally) cutthroat business of commercial fishing, to the paranoid misanthropy of the back-country prospector, to drug dealers, serial killers, and caches of forgotten war gold, he has had his hands full. Now he has a dead archaeologist, murdered at a dig site, who claimed to be on the verge of a momentous discovery. Fans of the icy frontier, of mystery tinged with a frisson of romance, of laconic lawmen with good intentions, of tai chi and small aircraft piloting take note: Liam Campbell is for you.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rich and detailed…The past meets the present on the wild Alaskan tundra in [this] expressive mystery novel.” Foreword Reviews
“Edgar winner Stabenow’s outstanding sixth Liam Campbell novel..Rich in details of Alaskan life, history, and archaeology, this fast-paced mystery builds to a satisfying conclusion.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Marguerite Gavin superbly narrates this whodunit…Gavin provides easily distinguishable voices for Liam and his new wife, Wy, as well as the reluctant local police chief and the self-important local judge, whose courtroom is actually the town saloon. Side note: Gavin’s impersonation of a recalcitrant raven is downright delightful.” AudioFile
