Product description


''M.J. McGrath opens a window onto a fascinating and disappearing culture in this haunting mystery.'' --Parade

''The most addictive character -- both hero and villain of the piece -- is the Arctic itself. It makes a seductive location for a thriller, a land of wonder and terror shut in darkness for months of the year, a place in which temperatures rarely rise above freezing and, in winter, regularly fall below -40ºC.'' --Telegraph (London)

''She weaves a strong strand of whodunit into a broader story about life in a twenty-first-century community on Canada's Ellesmere Island. The plot is wholly satisfying, and McGrath's portrait of a culture that uneasily blends yesterday and today is engrossing on its own merits. The Arctic is a big place -- big enough, one hopes, for Edie Kiglatuk to find another mystery that needs solving between warm bowls of seal blood soup fresh from the microwave.'' --Associated Press

''White Heat is a blazing star of a thriller: vivid, tightly-sprung, and satisfying on all levels. Encountering Edie Kiglatuk, the toughest, smartest Arctic heroine since Miss Smilla, left me with that rare feeling of privilege you get on meeting extraordinary people in real life. A huge achievement.'' --Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture

''M. J. McGrath's White Heat pulls you along like a steel cable, inexorably welding you to the characters and a place that you'll never forget.'' --Craig Johnson, author of The Cold Dish and Hell is Empty

''An arctic setting so real it'll give you frostbite.''--Dana Stabenow, author of A Cold Day for Murder

''M. J. McGrath's White Heat is a tour de force, a book with a stunning grip on all the elements that make a mystery story great. The characters are unique and profoundly human, the plot wonderfully labyrinthine, and the sense of place beautifully -- chillingly -- evoked. I challenge any reader to pick up this marvelous novel and not be completely mesmerized.'' --William Kent Kreuger, author of Vermillion Drift

''With a poet's confidence McGrath makes an unforgiving Arctic landscape, and then gives us a smart and strong yet vulnerable survivor in Edie Kiglatuk. You root for Edie. You can't do otherwise. In her risk-all pursuit of truth resides the best in all of us.'' --Kirk Russell, author of Redback: A John Marquez Crime Novel

''Once in a blue moon a book comes along that exposes the world to us in a new light, makes us question everything: who we are, what we think we know, our beliefs and values, even the nature and purpose of our existence. White Heat is such a book. Seek it out and bask in it.'' --James Thompson, author of Lucifer's Tears

''(Narrator) Kate Reading, with her straightforward descriptions of the stark Arctic tundra and the cold, unforgiving weather, brings a strong sense of place to her narration. The characters she creates are fully realized, each with its own distinctive voice. Especially well rendered is the troubled Kiglatuk, who comes across -- warts and all -- as an earnest, courageous, and appealing heroine in this promising new series.'' --Publishers Weekly audio review
