Author(s): Yrsa Sigurdardottir
When all contact is lost with two Icelanders working in a harsh and sparsely populated area on the northeast coast of Greenland, Thora is hired to investigate. Is there any connection with the woman who vanished from the site some months earlier? Why are the locals so hostile? And could one of the team staying at the site with Thora be responsible for the disappearances? Already an international bestseller, this fourth book to feature Thora Gudmundsdottir ('a delight' - Guardian) is chilling, unsettling and compulsively readable.
'Put simply, it's terrifying. And brilliant.' -- Stylist 'As with the other books in this series there is humour and warmth. Atmospheric, complex and compelling with an unexpected ending.' -- www.shotsmag.co.uk 'Publishers and blurb writers are competing to hail the new monarch of Nordic crime fiction ... I would be tempted to offer a name not from the obvious crime soil of Sweden or Norway, but from bleak and moody Iceland ...' -- Marcel Berlins, The Times 'Superbly atmospheric' -- Heat 'The twists and turns are as chilling as the weather ... [a] pageturner' -- Bella 'It's another complex case for Thora, liveliest granny on the floes, and deeply satisfying for the warm-toed reader.' -- Independent
