When you’re truly alone, you know that nobody’s coming to save you… It’s 1910. In a cabin north of the Arctic Circle, in a murderously cold and desolate wasteland, Sig Andersson is alone. Alone, that is, except for the corpse of his father, who froze to death that morning when he fell through the ice on the lake. Soon, though, a sinister stranger comes calling. Before long, Sig is wishing he really was alone again. As the man’s tale of gold lust unfolds, Sig’s thoughts turn to his father’s Colt revolver, hidden in the storeroom…
