"Out of the dark, an alomost invisible shadow slips swiftly through the falling snow to the back door.' A glow in the window flickers and grows stronger...tongues of flame leap and dance ...the blaze speaks in cracks and pops, until its voice gradually becomes a ravenous, insatiable roar..

The arrival of spring's first delicate blossoms promises relief from another cold and harsh winter deep in the heart of Alaskan'widerness.' And with a gang of frisky half-grown Husky pups trailing at her heels, Jessie Arnold looks forward to a new season of grueling, yet exhilarating, training with her dogs on the blankets of snow that linger on into the summer.' But just as the harsh Alaskan wind can unexpectedly sting on even the most beautiful spring day, new horrors bring a chill to Jessie's seemingly peaceful home...

A mysterious fire ravages a popular local pub, leaving an unidentified body lying in the ruins.' As if the destruction of her favorite watering hole isn't bad enough, Jessie's life is interrupted by the anticipated arrival of a friend she hasn't heard from a decade.' Shocked at the sight of a troubled woman, Jessie is stuneed to hear Anne's story of years of abuse at the hands'of her husband.' And when Jessie awakens in the night to discover the cabin she built herself engulfed in flames, and Anne sitting idly outside unwilling to help, Jessie'begins to wonder whether her houseguest is a crazed liar or an arsonist.

But it is?Jessie her
