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.

Excellent book

This book is told very well and gives you a good idea of what life is like in Alaska. The plot was very well constructed and well thought out. I like the characters and they mystery.
