Publisher's Summary

In a breathtaking land of ice and cold, death has come, by fire.

In the lingering chill of the early Alaskan spring, famed "musher" Jessie Arnold confronts the charred remains of a favorite local pub, destroyed by a suspicious blaze that claimed an innocent, unsuspecting life. This lull between racing seasons is meant to be a time of grueling training and conditioning for Jessie and her dogsled team, but instead it has become a time of fear. Because the burning has only begun, and its flames will scar and blister Jessie's world in ways she can barely imagine. And in the wake of more death, her next race will be one for survival, as she struggles to determine whether a desperate friend is a terrified victim, or a killer.

Critic Reviews

"The book's jittery, nail-biting pace hooks readers early on." (Booklist)
"You can take a trip into the beautiful wilds of Alaska and enjoy a good mystery at the same time." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Hooked on Henry

Great adventure. Jessie and her dog team get involved in an arson mystery. Sue Henry knows how to write a sociopath. The characters stood out vividly. The husband, the wife, the arson investigator--all jumped to the fore. I'm hooked on Alaskan Sue Henry and her Jessie Arnold series.

Great Novel, enough suspense and mystery...

I'm not sure why the stars for this are so low. This is a great series. Not too gory, enough mystery. Sue Henry is evolving as an author and her stories are showing interesting complexity. This was interesting because not everyone thinks the "world" of the protagonist. The author left the full mystery to resolve right up til the end. Enough clues were littered through out, but not enough to guess with confidence. There are several Alaskan mysteries and I'm so glad there are. This has been my favorite genre for several years.

Disappointed

Have liked other stories by Sue Henry, but this one is a mess. As usual, the book provides good background on Alaska, but the plot is a jumble and the characters poorly drawn.
