by Russell Heath
On a remote Alaskan island, Rinn Vaness commits a minor felony. His ex-lover is arrested for the crime—and the murder of a Tlingit elder broken by the loss of the Native way of life. Out on bail, Kit Olinsky fights a scorched-earth battle in the state legislature to save the Alaska she loves. She will lose, but she will fight to the end even if she must betray her secret lover, a Tlingit fighting desperately for what was promised to his people a generation ago. In the back rooms of the legislature, Senator Billy Macon manipulates Alaska’s grimy politics with vindictive mastery in his drive to the governor’s mansion. Like a lone wolf, Rinn slips out of the forest to protect Kit, never suspecting that he has more at stake than a lonely prison cell. “Serpentine intrigue and crisp characterization” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review). “Taut and propulsive” –Red City Review (5-star review).
