Overview

Drawing on her intimate knowledge of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Lise Mcclendon has crafted a dark tale of theft, murder, art, and archaeology. It begins with Alix Thorssen's stepfather discovered standing over a corpse of a visiting Norwegian artist, refusing to say a word in his own defense. It falls to Alix to clear him and uncover who sent Glasius Dokken, a painter of myths, to Valhalla. With ancient legends seeming to come to life around her, and with very contemporary bullets being fired through the windows of her art gallery, Alix's investigation could end with a Viking funeral... and it may all hinge on what the rune stones say.

Alix Thorssen, gallery owner and sometime sleuth (The Painted Truth) in Jackson, WY, fends for her stepfather when he is jailed for the murder of a famous visiting Norwegian painter. A local festival involving a parade, ice sculptures, ski races, and rune-stone readers serves as background for the action. The victim's painted murals depicting Norse mythology fit right in. As she looks for the real culprit, Alix deals with an out-of-town boyfriend, an in-town wanna-be lover, a worried and cranky mother, the gallery, and increasing danger to herself. A solid, enticing addition to the series. -- Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
Set in wintry Jackson Hole, Wyo., this crisp, straightforward mystery plunges gallery owner Alix Thorssen into the local Nordic Nights festival, which features ice carving, a parade, ski races. And a startling murder. The third entry in the McClendon's series (after The Bluejay Shaman) conjures up the icy beauty of Jackson Hole, and though the dialogue can be stilted, her agreeably feisty heroine and a hair-raising finale will keep readers entertained throughout the night, Nordic or otherwise.
E Arthur
After reading The Bluejay Shaman and Painted Truth by Lise McClendon, I expected to read a beautifully written and carefully crafted mystery alive with intriguing characters. Nordic Nights was all of those things plus much more. It was full of suspense, humor and a terrific sense of place. I could practically feel the cold as she described it. The twisty plot kept me glued to the book until the very end. The characters jumped off the page and told the story. I highly recommend Nordic Nights!
