Overview

Earl Parsons is a champion musher with a notorious past; he left Apostle Bay as a pariah, and his return for a sled dog race opens both old and new wounds in the community.

Ex-FBI agent Steve Olsen is obsessed by the one case he couldn't close, spending his retirement stalking the prime suspect and seeking redemption.

Gina Holt's daughter disappeared fourteen years ago and is presumed dead. Friends can't understand why she's bent on helping the man who was responsible—a second time.

And someone is booby-trapping community trails, endangering tourists and snowmobilers. Only a vigilante group that police loathe may have the manpower to prevent the next attack.

Reporter Vince Marshall is possibly the only one who can solve all these dilemmas, yet he's more concerned about his wife's mysterious illness than solving riddles of Apostle Bay's past.

A Lake Superior winter brings with it some snow and a good dose of mayhem to this Vince Marshall thriller.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sled dogs start the race in Upper Michigan's version of the Iditarod, but their drivers and the weather sabotage this annual festival. At one of the checkpoints, a team of dogs shows up short a driver, the visibility goes down, and the race is cancelled. A search party is launched for the missing driver, who might be a criminal back in town to avenge a long-ago crime. The familial connections—so common in small towns—complicate allegiances and truthfulness. Reporter Vince Marshall becomes entangled in the race's complex connections, but he's torn because his family also needs him. VERDICT With short chapters, the third title in Williams's trilogy (Superior Death; Superior Deception) ties up all the loose ends at a quick, snappy pace. Both exciting and affirmative, this cozy thriller is gentler than Bryan Gruley's "Starvation Lake" mysteries but might appeal to his readers for the setting and sense of place.
