    Excellent read!

    Elle Wild has given us an excellent look what it might be like for an urbanite to move to a small, northern town to escape. She has written about Dawson City, its geography and climate as if they were characters themselves in this mystery - some lovely imagery juxtaposed to some gruesome activities! The main character, Jo Silver, is a tortured soul to the point of reckless, almost suicidal ambition to make up for her past mistakes. Other characters are equally flawed and admirable. Loved that not all of the "Strange things Done" were ever completed resolved...

    Fiction, Mystery, Thriller

    Thank you to NetGalley and Dundurn for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Set in Dawson, Canada with freeze ready to set in a murder takes place. Jo Silver, new editor for the Daily, sets out to write a story she hopes will put her back on the map in a bigger town at some point in the future. The town is filled with potentially interesting characters that could provide the basis for a series. I have to say that Jo seemed to lack common sense at times and was not as likable as some heroines I have met in the past. I wanted to sit her down and help her make wiser choices. I had trouble figuring out why she made the decisions she made related to men, the dangerous way she pursued her investigation and the things she shared with others. Cariboo appealed to me but he did not get much time on the page and Byrne was not my cup of tea though he seemed to be just what Jo was drawn to. The writing was well done, characters developed in a way that I felt I knew them and yet I felt as if there were threads left loose and not tied up neatly and that is why I wondered if this was a stand-alone book or the beginning of a series. If this is a stand-alone book then it should have had those threads neatly tied up. I wondered why the murders really happened. I wondered if perhaps more people were involved than were caught. I wondered about the Surrey Strangler and the tie-in to this story. And I wondered what decision Jo will make about her future and what she will do when winter ends. I guess leaving me wondering could be a good thing BUT not if this was a stand-alone book and not a series in the making.

    A Riviting Tale of thr Yukon.

    This story intrgued me and tascinated to the hot, gory ending. The denizens of the real Dawson will be horrified to hear that i found the story almost believaeable, it is that good. A read for a cosy fireside!
