Women are turning up frozen to death, in and around Algonquin Bay, in clothes they were never seen wearing before, seemingly cared for then cruelly abandoned by their murderer. The killer slowly froze his victims to death. The victims variously have ties to a senator in Ottawa, a former rock star strongly suspected of killing a woman years before, a sex club, and a science outpost deep in the Arctic where, decades earlier, something terrible happened. A handful of people know about this catastrophe, and have a vested interest in keeping it quiet.
A good mystery.
