Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence. Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story -- one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well. Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack -- and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger -- Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames
