Brrrrr. Listeners may shiver when listening to this audio book - the author's depiction of the icy Alaskan terrain is so vivid that it causes chills, as does the thought of the murderer stalking the streets of small town Lunacy. Accomplished voice performer Gary Littman inhabits the persona of Nate Burke, first in the depths of despair then ruminative and probing as he hunts a killer. Remember Nate? He's the Baltimore police officer who lost his partner in a frenzy of bullets. Not his fault, nonetheless, Nate blames himself. Pile on top of that a messy divorce, and there you have one down and out guy. Hoping to change his life Nate takes the job of Chief of Police in Lunacy, a far away Alaskan town peopled by about 500 outre characters. It's rather quiet in Lunacy. In fact, it's kind of nice when Nate meets Meg, a bush pilot. The attraction is immediate and strong. However, there's little time for romance when the body of Meg's father who disappeared almost 20 years earlier is discovered. He was brutally murdered, and now it's up to Nate to find the killer before harm comes to Meg. Curl up in front of the fire, listen and enjoy the incomparable spell woven by Nora Roberts. - Gail Cooke

    Shame on you

    This book was a total take off from the TV series, Northen Exposure, right down to the female bush pilot. Shame on you, Nora.

    A Big Letdown For Me

    I thought this book was a big letdown compared to a lot of Nora's other books. I hardly felt any emotion from either of the main characters, compared to what I am used to. The way the lead woman, Megan acted towards sex made her seem, cold, callous, and seemed like she had no respect for herself. I love Nora Roberts, but this is the first book of hers that I have been truly dissappointed in her.

    the most boring book of hers that I have read

    I have read pretty much all her current books in publication and a lot of the ones out of print. This was the only one I struggled through as well as two thirds through said the heck with it and skipped to the back to found out who did the murders. It did not have her usual style of writing - leading me to suspect that someone else wrote it...
