A man is missing, vanished in the uncharted wilds of the new northern territories. And not just any man, but a scholar - a scholar whose influence extends all the way to Washington.
Jack Percy is asked to do the unthinkable: enter the hostile wilderness near the Canadian border, without the aid of military support, locate and extract the missing man. His reluctance is strong and sensible - the man has surely already met his fate. But something tugs at him, something internal, something more than the federal reward.
Winter stands at the threshold, the very season of death. If the missing person is to be retrieved, it must be done now and with the greatest of haste. Jack leads a small search party into the forest with a singular objective. What they find, however, is a past that refuses to die, and perhaps the most efficient and lethal Indian tribe they've ever seen or heard of. Or worse.

An intriguing and well-paced story
E.S. Taylor did a very good job with character development. You really care about the characters as the story develops. I also like how he tied details together from different times. It made for a very "smooth" and interesting read.
A good job is done of making several moments seem very real and stick with you well after the book is finished. The opening scene captured a very powerful moment that had a lasting effect on a character.
Ray. While he was a man of few words, Grimsley brought him to life. His performance overall was very good.
Several were moving. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll just advise that you give this book a shot. I think it is well worth the time.
I received this book at no charge in exchange for a fair, true and unbiased review.
Original historical fiction western.
