In the remote wilderness of West Quebec, where trees outnumber people a million to one and lakes a thousand to one, Death’s Golden Whisper opens with the sudden arrival of float planes bringing what Meg Harris believes are fishermen to the isolated northern lake she lives on. Within hours, she discovers that these men have come to develop a gold mine. She combines forces with Eric Odjik, chief of the neighbouring Migiskan reserve, to fight the mining company. The mine splits the Migiskan band into two opposing forces and ignites events that threaten Meg and lead to the mysterious disappearance of her friend Marie. As the search for Marie becomes more frustrating, another story unfolds and Meg discovers the mystery behind the intense feelings that bound her great-aunt to this lonely land until the day she died.

This is the first book in the Meg Harris Mystery series. The next book is Red Ice for a Shroud.

This started as an interesting cultural look at Canadian indians, but devolved into us against the "white man". Tiresome cliche, but will continue, as I am one who must finish what I start. This "mystery could get interesting!!! D from C

Got it as a freebie, which may have influenced my opinion. Interesting story with well-defined characters, but I figured out the connections long before I should have.

I will not pay $9 for a book, when the over view has editing errors. Imagine how terrible the grammer and editing would be in the story. I read the sample and was not impressed enough to waste my time, effort and money on a mundane novel, with irritating problems. AD
