Wrap up warmly. Melanie McGrath's earlier Arctic-set novels were
non-pareil in their freshness, and The Bone Seeker, the
latest investigation for her female Inuit hunter/sleuth Edie
Kiglatuk, is her best yet. There is an astonishing evocation of the
frigid landscape here, along with the sharply conjured details of
Inuit life. * Financial Times *
Filled with cultural tensions, gorgeous Arctic scenery and pulsing suspense. * Booklist starred review *
McGrath effectively evokes the spare Arctic landscape and brings life to the people who have inhabited it for generations. * Publishers Weekly *
The chills McGrath's third Edie entry sends down your spine will rival those brought on by any Nunavut winter. * Starred Kirkus review *
