The last thing Maja Cleary wanted was to be drawn back to her childhood home in the depths of a snowy Minnesota winter – but news of her father’s murder and her brother Jonas’s arrest force her from the safe world she has so carefully constructed for herself in Ottawa. A killer is on the prowl in Duved Cove and somewhere in Maja’s troubled past lies the trigger.
Passions and past trespasses are on a collision course as Maja crosses the border to save Jonas from being convicted of their father’s homicide – one he had every reason to commit. While Maja battles against time, her own demons and the relentless snow, the murderer prepares to kill again . . .
