Book Review - The Boy in the Snow by M.J. McGrath

This one is set in Alaska and involves the native peoples of the Arctic Circle, crooked politicians, land deals, religious cults and people trafficking. The Alaskan countryside is breath taking and described in the main by Edie Kiglatuk, a Canadian who is in Alaska to help her ex-husband take part in the Iditarod Dog Sled race. She finds a dead baby and is drawn into investigating the baby's death. Even though Edie lives in the Arctic realm of Canada, the Alaskan countryside is very different but it still retains an awesome spirituality and Edie can find common ground with the native peoples of this land. This took a little while to warm up for me as the culture and daily living tasks are so different from our warm soft land but it turned out to be a very satisfying mystery. Wendy
