Publisher's Summary

Famed Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold thinks she's finally put her dark past behind her. But the excavations on her new cabin unearth a decades-old skeleton entombed in a crumbling basement wall, along with a butterfly pendant necklace worn by the alleged victim of a brutal serial slayer who preyed on area women 20 years earlier. Pulled once more into a murder investigation against her will, Jessie fears a grim, half-forgotten nightmare has been reborn. For, in this stark and lonely place, in the first days of the all-too-brief Alaskan summer, another woman has disappeared without a trace. The signs suggest the unthinkable: an insatiable human monster has returned. And the clues she's uncovering hint that Jessie Arnold may well be his next victim.

Not one of the best

of Sue Henry's mysteries, but it was made doubly disappointing by the narrator, whose voice was grating and pronunciation stilted. Listen to a sample before you download to see if her voice is as unpleasant to you as it was to me.

Great Story! Great Characters!

Sue Henry does it again! This latest installment of Jesse the amazing, Alaskan dog musher's is woven into the horrific history of Alaska's notorious serial murderer. This was a great delving into a "what if" scenario. I love the moment the author has Jesse face her character flaws and can't wait to see how this affects her maturity in the future. I love how the majesty of alaska's wilderness is a full character in her stories. The Jesse mysteries are a terrific set to follow and get lost in.
