Synopsis: A Christmas e-special from the CWA Dagger Award nominated author of White Heat and The Boy in the Snow

Days before Christmas in the vast Arctic landscape of Ellesmere Island and the sun hasn’t come up for nearly two months. A hunter comes upon a body in the snow: head crusted with frozen blood, bruised fists, half dead. What others might have dismissed as a case of drunken misadventure, sometime-detective Edie Kiglatuk sees as a fight turned fatal.
 
When the battered victim doesn’t pull through, the alleged culprit goes into hiding and the victim’s three-year-old daughter goes missing with him. Since Edie has strong personal ties to the killer, it’s up to her to find him before a rifle-slinging search party beats her to it, taking justice into their own hands.
 
A stunning short mystery with a magical and heart-rending twist, Edie Kiglatuk's Christmas includes excerpts from the first two novels in the series, White Heat and The Boy in the Snow.
