The Boy in the Snow (Edie Kiglatuk Mystery, #2

The Boy in the Snow (Edie Kiglatuk Mystery, #2)The Boy in the Snow by M.J. McGrath
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a story about an infant found frozen in the snow by Edie Kiglatuk.  When an autopsy is performed it is found that the baby died about 3 months before he was put in the snow. Edie feels that there is more to the whole situation, but none of the authorities want to listen to her.

From that first little body, the story roams through politics, the Iditarod, an Orthodox sect called the Old Believers, and a grand commercial plan for Alaska. In the midst of all of this is Edie trying to raise the alarm and getting deeper and deeper involved.

I listened to the book while driving 600 miles and it kept my attention the whole way. This is the first book in this series I have read and I felt like  wanted to know more about Edie. I'll probably read more because I also enjoyed the description of Alaska and the people who inhabit our largest state which, in many ways, seems like a foreign country.
