Edie Kiglatuk’s discovery along Alaska’s Iditarod Trail leads to a massive, far-reaching conspiracy. M. J. McGrath’s debut novel, White Heat, earned both fans and favorable comparisons to bestselling Scandinavian thrillers such as Smilla’s Sense of Snow and the Kurt Wallander series. In The Boy in the Snow, half-Inuit Edie Kiglatuk finds herself in Alaska with Sergeant Derek Palliser, helping her ex-husband Sammy in his bid to win the famous Iditarod dogsled race. The race takes a grim turn when Edie stumbles upon the body of a baby left out in the forest. The state troopers are keen to pin the death on the Dark Believers—a sinister offshoot of a Russian Orthodox sect—but Edie’s instincts tell her otherwise. Her investigations take her into a world of corrupt politics, religious intolerance, greed, and sex trafficking. But just as she begins to get some answers, Edie finds herself confronted by a painful secret from her past.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The stoic Edie is a strong, determined heroine.” Houston Chronicle
“The two-week 1,150-mile Iditarod dog sled race from near Wasilla to Nome, Alaska, forms the backdrop for McGrath’s outstanding second mystery featuring half-Caucasian, half-Inuit Edie Kiglatuk…McGrath has a firm grasp on a little known culture, its values and language, and excels at bringing to life such characters as conniving Anchorage mayor Chuck Hillingberg and his power-hungry wife, Marsha. This affecting novel should melt even the most frozen human hearts.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Kate Reading treats the numerous colorful characters in this story with smooth perfection and moves easily between genders, ages, ethnicities, and idiosyncrasies…This exceptionally well-performed audiobook will win more fans for its author and its narrator. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“The listener will feel every bite of the subzero temperatures. Kate Reading is an expert narrator and pronouncer of unfamiliar Inuit names and places. Whether she is portraying the maverick Edie, the young prostitutes, the Alaskans, the Old Believers, or the nefarious would be governor and his evil wife, she moves among them effortlessly.” Soundcommentary.com (starred review)
“Edie is fierce in her desire for justice…[She] finds herself at mortal risk from the cold, so masterfully described that it chills the reader.” Booklist
“Easily the equal of its predecessor, The Boy in the Snow is a tautly plotted, truly satisfying suspense novel.” BookPage
“The plot is compelling and the settings mesmerizing. McGrath…is a fresh and compelling voice.” Cleveland.com
