Abstract:

"Edie Kiglatuk's discovery along Alaska's Iditarod trail leads to a massive, far-reaching conspiracy M.J. McGrath's debut novel, White Heat, earned both fans and favorable comparisons to bestselling Scandinavian thrillers such as Smilla's Sense of Snow and the Kurt Wallander series. In The Boy in the Snow, half-Inuit Edie Kiglatuk finds herself in Alaska with Sergeant Derek Palliser, helping her ex-husband Sammy in his bid to win the famous Iditarod dog sled race. The race takes a grim turn when Edie stumbles upon the body of a baby left out in the forest. The state troopers are keen to pin the death on the Dark Believers--a sinister offshoot of a Russian Orthodox sect--but Edie's instincts tell her otherwise. Her investigations take her into a world of corrupt politics, religious intolerance, greed, and sex trafficking. But just as she begins to get some answers, Edie finds herself confronted by a painful secret from her past."--
