Murphy Anderson’s sister was murdered and Murphy is now in the Witness Protection Program because of it. Local authorities in Alaska hire her as an artist and it puts her in danger again. On top of that, a dying man’s confession of dead bodies stirs up the past, including WW2 secrets. What happened in the Quonset hut in the 1940’s? Why is someone so determined to keep it a secret now?
I very much enjoyed the history of the Alaskan Wilderness Ms. Parks incorporated into her story. The WW2 mystery intrigued me, what happened and how it threaded into modern times. The other part of the story, the murder, did not dim the story in any way. The only thing I was not keen on was the ending. It felt…. odd.. to me. It was something I was not expecting and I am still unsure how I feel about it.
