Just outside a tiny, isolated town in Alaska, a young girl finds a severed hand and foot. No one from town is missing, so the local authorities write it off as someone who fell or jumped from a cruise ship. But Cara Kennedy, a detective from Anchorage, isn't so sure. She has her own reasons for wanting to know more. What was supposed to be a quick trip turns into an extended stay when the tunnel allowing access in and out of town becomes impassible due to a storm. Everyone in town lives in the same high-rise building and they aren't all happy to have the detective staying among them. Things get complicated when two local boys go missing. Is their disappearance connected to the recently discovered body parts? Yamashita has been writing for Hollywood for years, so it's easy to understand why you can easily imagine her debut novel as it would be on the big screen. Very atmospheric, quirky characters, a little humor, a little romance and an intriguing mystery come together to create a very entertaining read.
