Jessie Arnold, Iditarod racer, is taking a break from training because of a bad knee when she is invited to be one of a work party restoring an old lighthouse on a tiny island in Frederick's Sound. Because Alex Jensen, with whom she is living, needs to be away on state trooper business, she goes alone. She meets and befriends a troubled young woman, Karen, who is running away from a man she says is abusive and stalking her. Jessie invites her to the island. Matters take a nasty turn when a dead body is found on shore, a woman goes missing, all the cell phones are stolen, their radio is smashed, their only boat is sunk, traces of cocaine are found in the basement, and Karen's behavior shifts from pathetic to irritating. Pleasant-voiced Snell reads with care and deliberation a narrative in which interior monologues and action share the stage. Listeners fond of Alaska will enjoy the strongly depicted setting with descriptions of glaciers, whale sightings, and mentions of cruise port favorites such as Skagway and Ketchikan.
