As winter's first snow starts to fall, a young Quebecoise
sneaks off to meet her Algonquin lover in an isolated hunting camp
on the Migiskan Reserve. Five days later, Meg Harris discovers her
frozen and brutalized body. The young Native is charged with her
murder, and Meg feels responsible, as the young woman was a member
of the crew that was helping Meg to clear some cross country ski
trails. Meg, convinced of the Native's innocence, sets out to
find the real killer against a backdrop of police prejudice. As she
scrambles to unravel the truth, the snow turns to freezing rain,
locking her West Quebec wilderness within a prison of ice. The
sequel to Death's Golden Whisper again visits the Canadian
wilderness of Quebec where survival hinges on the strong alliances
one forms with one's neighbors.
