In the lingering chill of the early Alaskan spring, famed "musher" Jessie Arnold confronts the charred remains of a favorite local pub, destroyed by a suspicious blaze that claimed an innocent, unsuspecting life. This lull between racing seasons is meant to be a time of grueling training and conditioning for Jessie and her dogsled team--but instead it has become a time of fear. Because the burning has only begun, and its flames will scar and blister Jessie's world in ways she can barely imagine. And in the wake of more death, her next race will be one for survival--as she struggles to determine whether a desperate friend is a terrified victim... or a killer.

OK im in 9th grade and i read this book when I was in 8th grade and i thought it was the best book ever, and I can't really say that with most books because I used to hate reading but now I read everyday, and it is because of this book. I especially liked the way Sue Henry made you think alot to try to figure out who the suspect is also the way its a suspensful thriller. I reccommend this book for people 8 yrs old and older

I have read 5 novels by Sue Henry and this is the best one next to ''Deadfall''. I loved this book because Jessie Arnold (the main character) had a wonderful part. There were suprises on every page, and I recommend it to anyone who likes murder mysteries.

The call from old friend Anne Holman came out of nowhere since kennel owner and dog trainer Jessie Arnold had not heard from her in years. A frantic Anne told Jessie she was coming to Alaska to spend a few days. That night, a fire rages at Oscar¿s Other Place killing someone.

Upon seeing Anne at the Anchorage Airport, she looks anorexic and so different that Jessie fails to recognize her. The scars and visible bruises inform Jessie that Anne is an abuse victim who apparently is running away from her husband Greg. Soon the fires begin in earnest including Jessie¿s house with the canine trainer inside. Jessie begins to wonder if Annie is a victim or a culprit causing arson and death.

BENEATH THE ASHES is an exciting Alaskan mystery that focuses on the relationship between Anne and Jessie. The story line grips the reader as the audience wonders whether Anne is a lunatic or the prey of some unknown assailant. Though different from her usual superb Sue Henry mysteries, fans of the series and regional tales will find great joy from this excellent tale.
