An excellent historical mystery set in Cordova, Alaska in 1919. Charlotte Brody a journalist has arrived to visit her brother, Dr Michael Brody leaving a secret behind her. A prostitute,is found beaten to death near her lodging. Unexplained phenomena occurs some nights and she meets Deputy Sheriff James Eddington. Charlotte helped her brother with autopsy and becomes interested in the victim. The characters will catch your attention as they are well developed as are the descriptions of the area. I found the view of Alaska interesting comparing it the books featuring natives of the area. I recommend this book.
Disclosure: I received a free copy from Kensington Books through Netgalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions are my own.
