Overview

With her cabin a pile of ashes and her life in pieces, champion Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold has gratefully accepted a friend's proposal that she drive his motor home up from Idaho, along the Alaska Highway--a breathtaking, two thousand-mile-long route winding past hot springs, glaciers, and ice-blue lakes. But the idyllic trip takes a dark turn when a teenage hitchhiker brings terror aboard. Frightened and alone, Patrick Cutler disappears just before the police inform Jessie that the young runaway is wanted in connection with two shocking murders. Suddenly she is cast into a raging maelstrom of dark secrets and deadly consequences. And the cold and empty road she's traveling could be leading her not to her home... but to a grave in the trackless wilderness.

Book 8 finds Alaskan musher Jessie Arnold waiting for spring and breakup so the contractor can pour the basement for her new cabin. As a favor to her contractor, Jessie agrees to fly down to Coeure d'Elene, ID and drive his new motor home up the Alaska Highway. Meanwhile, in Cody, WY a teenaged boy, Patrick Cutler, sees his stepfather kill his mother and flees. His intention is to reach Fairbanks, AK to find a friend, hide and start life over again. Also, on the road is Maxine "Maxie" McNabb, a 60 something woman of spirit and adventuresome heart (who later goes on to star in her own series line by the same author). The is plenty of suspense, along with descriptions of the breathtaking scenery and history of the Alaska Highway.

As a long-time resident of interior Alaska (59 years) who has driven the Alcan hightway many times, this was a great book for me. I love a good mystery. While you knew the "who" of the "whodonit", it still took you on twists and turns, literally and figuratively. As well as mysteries, I love books about Alaska and I thoroughly enjoyed the "ride" up the highway once again. I will definitely look for her other books.

I thought this book was good because it had a good plot and good characters. Sue Henry writes very well and in this book she shows how much she knows about Alaska and the roads and it seems like she went through a lot of researching for this book in order to write all of that. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that Sue Henry puts in a lot of unneeded information which makes it very boring at times. So, that can get annoying when you're reading it. But otherwise, this was a good mystery book and it had a good ending and I also liked how everything fit together at the end. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery books.

In Cody, Wyoming, the police hide the abusive nature of one of their own. Officer McMurdock beats his spouse and his teenage stepson Patrick. However, this time things go too far. When the cops arrive, McMurdock claims his stepson knocked him unconscious with a baseball bat, killed his mother, and fled to places unknown. Detective Daniel Loomis investigates the domestic incident, but McMurdock¿s story seems off kilter.

At about the same time Alaska native Jesse Arnold accepts a job to transport a Winnebago home from Coeur D¿Alene, Idaho. With her home destroyed by an arsonist, Jesse feels the trip will help her rebound. She takes her lead dog Tank with her for companionship. On the way back, Jesse picks up a hitchhiking Patrick, not realizing that danger follows him North to Alaska.

DEAD NORTH is an action-packed thriller that shows why award winning Sue Henry knows DEAD NORTH with her Alaska mysteries. The story line is exhilarating as the wilderness serves as a safe zone and a potential killing field from an enraged predator. Fans of the Alaskan mystery will take pleasure in this wonderful tale even as they cheer that McMurdock finally receive his comeuppance.
