From the Back Cover
A low rumble made Colly's blood freeze. The chug-chug of an engine followed by the clinking of chains started his heart pounding. He peered at where Jaz had disappeared on the barge. "Hurry!" he shouted inside his head. Where was she? Why didn't she get off? Maybe she was trying. Maybe she was caught! He took out his red whistle and gave a short careful toot. No Jaz. He tooted again, louder and longer this time. Nothing. When Junior Canadian Rangers Colly and Jaz visit Colly's uncle in Tuktoyaktuk, on Canada's Arctic coast, they don't expect to do much more than explore the area and have some fun. But how can they ignore the dead falcons they find on the beach-or the suspicious behavior of one of the town's residents?
