A tense, terse account of one of the strangest manhunts in Canadian history, set in some of the most difficult terrain imaginable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Knuckle-gripping action in a white, Arctic hell. The story unfolds with cinematic clarity; you can practically see the frozen breath of the dog sled teams as the police pursue their elusive quarry. A recommended read for true-crime fans.

HASH(0xa5cae120) out of 5 stars An accurate book Dec 25 2013
By Mrs. Marika Aggett - Published on Amazon.com
This book is very well written and (as far as anyone knows) accurate. The details are explained in such a manner that it is easy to read and it keeps you interested all the way. It is approx 130 pages and I read it in two goes as I got so engrossed in it. The author seems to be very well informed and I believe a lot of research was put into this project. If you do not like heavy, deep reading then this is the book for you highly reccommended.
