The Jessie Arnold mysteries offer “real thrills set against the wild beauty of Alaska” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune
)—and this time, Jessie unscrambles a deadly puzzle along the Alaskan Inside Passage…
Two of Jessie’s friends are throwing a party at their new digs—an old lighthouse on the Alaskan Inside Passage. Not a party in the typical sense, but one where guests earn their keep by scraping, painting, and generally restoring Five Finger Light, named after the long, low islands around it. So Jessie decides to leave her partner-in-crime, Alex, alone for a few days and lend a hand. With the company of old friends and a view to die for, Jessie won’t soon forget this weekend—especially when she stumbles across a dead body. Looks like an accident. But even as a frantic Alex learns that someone’s cut the phone lines and wrecked the radio, Jessie realizes there’s a killer loose on the island. Worse yet, the killing spree might not be over—even though the party certainly is....
From the multiple award-winning author comes a bone-chilling addition to the "wonderfully evocative" ("Baltimore Sun") Jessie Arnold series.
Sled dog racer Jessie Arnold stars in a series that's "suspenseful, intelligent, and filled with the spectacular beauty of the northern wilds" (Dallas Morning News). Her friends, Laurie and Jim, have acquired their dream-an old lighthouse on the Alaskan Inside Passage-and invited everyone to a party. Not a party in the typical sense, but one where guests earn their keep by restoring the old building. With the company of old friends, the smell of fresh paint, and a view to die for, this is one weekend Jessie won't soon forget-especially when a guest ends up dead. At first, the death seems like an accident, but when someone cuts the phone and radio connections, Jessie realizes there's a killer loose on the island.
