Synopsis

A debut novel full of shadows you’ll want to devour in an evening or two. Coup de pouce

Isabelle Lafortune writes with intensity and such an alluring perception of life up North that her descriptions almost convince us we are there. — Le Devoir

An electrifying thriller that tackles many issues making headlines today and an exquisite ode to the Canadian Far North and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.

April 2012. The bodies of Natasha and her sister Gina are found near a snowmobile trail just outside of Schefferville. Detective Émile Morin, rushed to the scene from Montreal by a government fearing a scandal, searches high and low but nobody remembers running into the pair.

He will have to rely on his friend Giovanni “Johnny” Celani, who spent a few years living in the community, to teach him to navigate the tense climate of this former mining Eldorado where steady employment is now harder to come by than brawls around a slot machine.
