A former aid worker returns home haunted by her time in Africa and channels her pain into a murder investigation that's all too personal.

After surviving a horrific trauma in Nigeria, international aid worker Amanda Doucette returns to Canada to rebuild her life and her shaken ideals. There, the once-passionate, adventurous woman needs all her strength and ingenuity when a friend and fellow survivor goes missing along with his son.

A trained first-aid and crisis responder, Doucette - always accompanied by her beloved dog Kaylee - joins forces with RCMP officer Chris Tymko to discover the truth about the disappearance. Their search leads them to the Great Northern Peninsula, a rugged landscape of Viking history, icebergs, whales, and fierce ocean storms. Elsewhere, a body gets hauled up in a fisherman's net, and evidence is mounting of an unsettling connection with Amanda's search for her friend. Fradkin writes evocatively of the beautiful, often hostile, Newfoundland landscape where Amanda soon finds herself fighting for her very survival.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If you want to get a real feel (and fear) of the woods, this is the book for you. * Globe and Mail *
The book also leaves one wishing to know more about Amanda Doucette. She is a plucky, adventurous, smart, caring person with an exciting, globetrotting career and the potential for many great stories. * Ottawa Citizen *
Fradkin, a retired psychologist, creates well-drawn, complex characters, and she knows how to build tension and drama that hold readers to the end. * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
Launching a new series, Fradkin scores low for mystery, high for wilderness adventure, and off the charts for her portrait of the bleak, beautiful Newfoundland landscape. * Kirkus Reviews *
A terrific read. * Winnipeg Free Press *
Readers of Tana French and Deborah Crombie may want to investigate. * Library Journal *
Readers who have enjoyed Barbara Fradkin's series featuring Inspector Green of the Ottawa police will not be disappointed with her new protagonist, Amanda Doucette. * Reviewing the Evidence *
Fabulous. The characters were amazing and the story pulled you in, and kept me guessing until the end. * Inside Toronto *
Believable, nuanced characters and unpredictable plots. * Atlantic Books Today *
Masterly ... it's the wilderness that provides the story's passion. * Toronto Star *
A simply riveting read from first page to last by a master of the genre. * Midwest Book Review *
