Hot stuff from the frozen north is the proper tag for this book.
The wild Indians, forest fire, murders, gold mines, a lovely girl and a horrible secret. All mixed up together in the “devil’s own country” don’t promise enough excitement. You’re hard to please in that line.
You know that there’s something mysterious about Allan Nowbray’s death on his Bell River trading trip. There’s an unsolved secret in young Alec’s tragic end on the dance floor at Leaping Horse. But you can’t really believe. The fat, tubby Murray McTavish is at the bottom of it all ’till he’s hunted down in his crookedness by John Kars. The most powerful man in the gold country.
