Arctic Blue Death

Overview

Short-listed for the 2010 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel

The sparsely populated Arctic is no stranger to murder. The fourth in the Meg Harris series follows Meg’s adventures into the Candian Arctic as she searches for the truth about the disappearance of her father when she was a child. Many years ago, her father’s plane had gone missing in the Arctic and he was never seen again. What happened on that fateful flight? Thirty-six years later, her mother receives some strange Inuit drawings that suggest he might have survived. Intent on discovering the answers, no matter how painful, Meg travels to Iqaluit to find the artist and is sucked into the world of Inuit art forgery. Arctic Blue Death is not only a journey into Meg’s past and the events that helped shape the person she is today, but it’s also a journey into the land of the Inuit and the culture that has sustained them for thousands of years. Finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel.

This is the fourth book in the Meg Harris Mystery series. The next book is A Green Place for Dying.
