From the back: An overworked detective, a dedicated game warden, and a veteran bush pilot team up in this epic saga as big as Alaska itself. A child is snatched from the anchorage bus station. Clues developed during the search suggest she’s being held by a pedophile and his ex-con buddy, and that they are hatching a plot to blow up the trans-Alaska pipeline. Then detective Gomez learns that the pedophile murdered his last victim. The race is on to save the child before the killer tires of her and to prevent an monumental environmental disaster in the heart of Alaska's sweeping wilderness.
