The Dead Chill
by Linda Berry
When a young Native American woman is found brutally murdered, a shock wave rips through the peaceful town of Garnerville, Oregon. Murder here is rare.
Police Chief Sidney Becker, a highly skilled detective, is relentless. She won’t rest until the killer is in custody. Sidney learns from tribal members that the victim had been releasing animals trapped by poachers. A poacher caught her destroying his traps and threatened to skin her alive.
Sidney believes nine-year-old Tegan knows the poacher’s identity. Blinded by lightning when he was six, Tegan has a heightened sense of smell and hearing. He often meets a ghostly man in the woods to conduct secret activities. This may have gotten the woman killed.
Spooked, Tegan and his grandmother flee into a snowstorm. Sidney’s dread deepens when the tracks of a lone rider are discovered trailing them. This horseman needs to be apprehended—fast—before he silences Sidney’s only witness.
