"Adrenaline-pumping . . . [A] polished action mystery . . . [with] dazzling Arctic sights." —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review Winner of the Macavity Award and the Anthony Award Murder on the Iditarod Trail is a gripping mystery set during Alaska's world-famous Iditarod: a grueling eleven-hundred-mile dogsled race across hazardous Arctic terrain. It is an arduous sport, but not a deadly one. But suddenly the top Iditarod contestants are dying in bizarre ways: first a veteran musher smashes into a tree, then competitors begin turning up dead, with each murder more brutal than the last. State trooper Alex Jensen begins a homicide investigation, determined to track down the killer before more blood stains the pristine Alaskan snow. Meanwhile, Jessie Arnold, Alaska's premier female musher, has a shot at winning for the first time. But as her position in the race improves, so do her chances of being the killer's next target. As the mushers thread their way through the treacherous trails, Jessie and Jensen are drawn deep into the frozen heart of the perilous wild: where nature can kill as easily as a bullet and only the Arctic night can hear your final screams. "Engrossing . . . The howling winds, the snow, the ice, the dancing away from wolves, the crazing fatigue, the welcome heat and food, are almost palpable." —Los Angeles Times Book Review "Excellent . . . well-paced, well-conceived, engrossing . . . moves along like a healthy, well-trained dog team." —Anchorage Times "A book that will give you a feel for how the Iditarod is . . . Sue Henry has a genius for characterization, plot, and setting." andamp;#8212;Mystery News

Very interesting and enjoyable read. I used to have two Alaskan Malamutes when I lived in Seattle and so I followed the Iditarod race each year from home. I was intrigued with some of the practices of the mushers, like how they kept their sleep schedule and how they avoided conflict on the actual trail. The mystery itself was well done and despite murder at the beginning of the book, kept up the tension throughout the entire story. Characters were believable and provoked reactions in me. I'll be looking into more of this writer's other books.
