"Active maintains his awe of the vast Alaskan tundra, a forbidding region that Jones renders in all its bone-chilling beauty."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"[Jones'] depiction of a freezing world of tar-paper houses and whaling camps is absolutely convincing."- Houston Chronicle

Alaska State Trooper Nathan Active is regarded as "half-white" by the Inupiats of the village where he is stationed. He was born in Chukchi but was adopted by Anglos and raised in Anchorage. Now he is called upon to investigate the murder of a tribal leader who was stabbed to death with an antique harpoon, which had been recently returned to the community under the Indian Graves Act.
