Summer in the High Arctic. When young Inuit Martha Salliaq goes missing from her settlement, her teacher, ex Polar Bear Hunter Edie Kiglatuk enlists her police friend Derek Palliser to help search for the girl. But once a body is discovered floating in a polluted lake on the site of a decommissioned Radar Station, Edie's worst fears are realised.

As the investigation into Martha's murder begins, the Inuit community - and Martha's devastated family - are convinced the culprits lie within the encampment of soldiers stationed nearby. Before long Sergeant Palliser finds evidence linking two of the men with the dead girl. But Edie and local lawyer Sonia Gutierrez remain unconvinced. Why are the military quite so willing to cooperate with the investigation? What has Edie's boyfriend Chip Muloon, a simple academic researcher, got to hide? And why has the lake where Martha's body was found been suddenly cordoned off?

A gripping, atmospheric thriller set in the Arctic's long white nights, in The Bone Seeker the very personal murder of a young girl will explode a decades-long tale of the very darkest betrayal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
