This review is from: The Boy in the Snow: Edie Kiglatuk Arctic Crime Series Book 2 (The Edie Kiglatuk Arctic Crime Series) (Kindle Edition)
Edie Kiglatuk is in Alaska, far away from Ellesmere Island her native home. She is supporting her ex-husband Sammy Inukpuk as he takes part in the Iditarod dog-sled race in memory of his son Joe. Edie is the support based in Anchorage and Derek Palliser is the support in Nome. Edie comes across the frozen body of a small child in a spirit hut in the forest and is drawn into a web of underage prostitution and illegal adoption which runs through all areas of influence and politics in the North.

It never fail to amaze me that M J McGrath is based in london. Reading through the novels one is conscious of being embedded in a society that lives outside western norms. The knowledge of the Inuit people, their customs, everyday life and their language, is such as base for the Edie Kiglatuk books that it is a shock to find that they are not written by either a native Inuit or someone who has lived among them for many years.

Add this wonderful atmosphere to a tightly plotted story and some very interesting characters and there is an excellent book here.
