Product description

It’s 1910. In a cabin north of the Arctic Circle, in a place that is murderously cold and desolate, Sig Andersson is alone. Except for the corpse of his father, frozen to death that morning when he fell through the ice on the lake. Soon, though, a sinister stranger comes calling. And as his tale of gold lust unfolds, Sig’s thoughts turn to his father’s Colt revolver, hidden in the storeroom…

“A sparse, taut and claustrophobic story that really pulls you in and makes the reader inhabit its bleak environment. From its fantastic opening line to the twist at the end, nothing is wasted in this visually arresting book.” Carnegie Medal judges

“One of the finest and best-constructed page turners of the year. Tense, succinct, evocative and ingenious.” Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

“An outstanding psychological thriller about the Arctic gold rush.” Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
