New in the John Cardinal mystery series. A year after the death of his beloved and troubled wife, John Cardinal investigates a crime in the snow-covered Algonquin Bay area: the decapitated bodies of two people are found in a summer home on Trout Lake. The victims, visitors from Russia, are in Algonquin Bay attending the annual fur auction. This is by no means a routine murder investigation as Cardinal soon discovers, but a horrific piece of a very twisted puzzle. From the international bestselling author of FORTY WORDS OF SORROW.
