Abstract:

A frozen body is found on top of Vermont's tallest mountain in middle of winter. Lost hiker or foul play? It's hard to say, until the marble-hard body is thawed out, revealing oddly old-fashioned clothes, an ice-pick wound to the heart, and a Canadian driver's license dating back 50 years. Identified as an old-time smuggler from Sherbrooke, Quebec, and the patriarch of a now powerful crime syndicate, the body reveals further clues--and points the way toward a priceless marble mask sculpted by Michelangelo, mysteriously stolen during WWII's Italian campaign. Once again, it is up to Lt. Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team to solve a case involving cops and crooks on both sides of the border.
