White Heat

I really enjoyed this book because of its Arctic setting and its depiction of Inuit and their vanishing way of life. There is always something poignant and sad about native peoples and their struggle to cope with their reality. The heroine, Edie Kiglatuk, is a strong yet vulnerable protagonist who uncovers a series of deaths and with the help of Derek Palliser, the local policemen, she investigates and gets to the truth.
