How can someone from a completely different culture understand somewhere completely different from the country she lives in? MJ McGrath takes the reader on an extraordinary journey through a vast, white country, getting involved in the language and people of the Arctic Circle. There is death and plenty of shocking events that completely sweep you up. A fascinating murder mystery, quite unlike anything I've ever read before. I was transfixed from start to finish. The story never gets stuck, never jitters, never goes off course. Anyone who reads this will be fascinated by the lives of the various people who take centre stage in the story and there are a ton of surprises right the way through the book. If you like murder mystery, this will get you tingling. Oh, and there is a good ending, despite the sadness of some events which tripped me up along the way.
Extremely good writing.

Arctic capersReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2015
An interesting book with fascinating details about everyday life in the Arctic. However, Edie herself was an unsatisfying character and there were times you had sympathy with her antagonists. Her internal dialogue sometimes detracted from the flow of the plot. None of the characters felt properly fleshed out, but this is the first in a series and I would certainly try the next one and see how they develop.

Well- written, refreshing ,suspenseful adventure with a heroine you can't fail to side with.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 January 2016
Rivetting novel about a girl surviving in the arctic circle; she has to fend off the elements and some nasty characters; it's an adventure with well-drawn characters, and the unusaul setting is a refreshing change from the more familiar locals.
Couldn't put it downReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 February 2013
I hadn't heard of MJ Mcgrath previously but have got into the habit of checking the kindle deal of the day and have accumulated a number of books by newish authors for my holiday reading. Found this to be a great read and, literally, couldn't put it down. It combines a fast moving thriller with a number of wider themes including the discrimination experienced by Inuit poeples, the position of women in that society, the impact of global warming and the exploitation of natural resources by big business. Hard to imagine a balmy day at 25 degreesw below freezing! Give it a try and, like me, you'll be back for more....................
