In the Barrens, a vast wilderness in northern Canada bordering the Arctic Circle, night consumes every hour of the winter. Humans are scarce; ferocious predators roam freely. Locals say spirits do, too.
Rookie cop Tana Larsson doesn’t mind the dark and quiet. Five months pregnant and hoping to escape the mistakes of her past, she takes a post in Twin Rivers, population 320. Maybe here she can find peace and community for her child.
But with her superior out of commission, Tana becomes the sole police officer in 17,500 square miles. One bitter night, she gets a call about the fatal wolf mauling of two students, and the only way to reach the remote scene is to enlist the help of the arrogant, irritatingly handsome Cameron “Crash” O’Halloran, a local bush pilot with a shady reputation for smuggling and a past cloaked in shadow.
When the macabre scene they uncover suggests violence much more sinister than animal, Tana must trust Crash if she wants to protect the town—and herself—from the evil that lurks in the frozen dark.
So I featured this one on Friday but since I am still reading it I thought I would go ahead and give another tease. This book is not for the faint of heart as it’s pretty gory…nasty wolf mauling with lots of details. 🙂
“November,” she said out loud. “Early November.”
Rosalie, pouring cream into her mug of cocoa, looked up and said. “What?”
“Regan Novak, Dakota Smithers, Selena Apodaca and Raj Sanjit were all mauled to death in the first week of November.”
It seems that this one lone mountie is putting things together that nobody ever has in regards to this horrible killings. I am not sure if it’s a deranged madman or creature yet but I am leaning towards the madman. 🙂
What are you reading? Give me a little tease!
