Kate Shugak, a personal investigator, has been engaged on a case for the Anchorage District legal professional regarding the homicide of a tender girl by means of her husband, a guy named Louis Deem. Deem has been the topic of investigations earlier than, and he is by no means been convicted of against the law. yet Kate and her on-again, off-again lover, country trooper Jim Chopin, who arrested Deem, are confident that this time it really is different―and he will ultimately be punished for his activities.
When the jury returns a verdict of now not in charge, Kate, Jim, and voters of Niniltna, Alaska, think Deem has gotten away with homicide. And while, a number of weeks later, humans occur lifeless after an obvious theft, Kate and Jim can not help yet think that Deem is involved…but what it takes to deliver Deem to justice may well tear them apart―if the true killer does not get to them first.
