Summary (IBList user synopsis):

From Anchorage to the Chilkoot Pass, from the Klondike gold rush to the present day, this one-of-a-kind collection of original mystery stories has a little bit of everything Alaskan. With mysteries as icy as the rugged landscape, Alaskan authors and Alaska lovers give readers a glimpse into what makes this place so alluring—and mysterious....

The Mysterious North

- In Anne Perry’s “Rearrangements,” three sisters turn on each other even as they contend with the Good Friday Earthquake of 1964.

- In John Straley’s “Finding Lou,” an Alaskan detective becomes his own worst enemy as he searches for a fisherman who may be a murderer.

- Based on true crime events, Sue Henry’s “Losing Streak” offers a glimpse into the mind of a burglar who has unwittingly made a career out of getting caught.

- In “Cheechako” by Dana Stabenow, a group sets out over the Chilkoot Trail to claim their fortune in the Klondike gold fields, and not even murder can keep them from their dreams.

- In “Going Home” by S. J. Rozan, an Alaskan private investigator tracks down a man’s brother in New York City. But does the brother really want to be found?

- In Donna Andrews’s “An Unkindness of Ravens,” nature and myth partner up to put an abusive husband in his place.

- In “A Little Walk Home,” Michael Armstrong’s protagonist triumphs over five hundred miles of Alaskan bush to emerge again into civilization.

- In “The Twin” by Brad Reynolds, Native Alaskan culture steps in when a ceremonial mask comes to life.
