As winter tightens its grip on the isolated settlement of Canada's Dove River in 1867, a man is brutally murdered and a 17-year-old boy disappears. Tracks leaving the dead man's cabin head north toward the forest and the tundra beyond. In the wake of such violence, people are drawn to the township - but do they want to solve the crime or exploit it? One by one, the assembled searchers set out to pursue the tracks across a desolate landscape, home only to wild animals, madmen and fugitives. Stef Penney weaves adventure, suspense, revelation and humor into a gripping historical tale, an exhilarating thriller and a keen murder mystery.
