Thriller / suspense

A sophisticated, bone-chilling thriller set in an isolated mining community in Quebec, where long-buried secrets are about to come to light. From award-winning and internationally bestselling suspense author RJ Ellory.

Jasperville, Quebec. A small town a thousand miles from anywhere.
For Jack Devereaux, it's a thousand miles too close.

Running from a troubled childhood, Jack left home as soon as he could and never looked back - until the day a stranger calls, begging him to return to Jasperville.

Jack's brother Calvis - the little boy he left behind all those years ago - has viciously attacked a man and left him for dead. Nobody knows why he did it, though Jack suspects it has something to do with the Jasperville girls who were lost all those years ago.

As he begins the long journey home through the frozen, unforgiving landscape, Jack isn't wondering why his little brother lost his mind.

He's wondering why it took so long...
