After half his body was burned in a forest fire, Miles McEwan left his life behind and moved to the most remote place he could find, a little village in the Yukon called Ross River. He’s sitting at his usual spot in the town’s one bar as two life-changing forces approach from opposite sides: one is a forest fire, set with the flick of a match; the other is his former girlfriend, who after five years of searching has tracked him down, bringing with her a daughter Miles didn’t know he had. As head of the town’s firefighters, Miles must confront the fire, find a killer, and protect his newfound family. Andrew Pyper’s vivid, panoramic story encompasses the vast wilderness of the Yukon, as malevolent forces of nature and man converge on Ross River, in this “brilliant melding of mystery, suspense, survival, and the supernatural” (The Vancouver Sun).
