1910. A cabin north of the Arctic Circle. Fifteen-year-old Sig Andersson is alone. Alone, except for the corpse of his father, who died earlier that day after falling through a weak spot on the ice-covered lake. His sister, Anna, and step-mother, Nadya, have gone to the local town for help.

As Sig gradually learns the awful truth about Wolff's connection to his father, his thoughts are drawn to a certain box hidden on a shelf in the storeroom, in which lies his father's prized possession - a revolver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent beautifully written book I was fairly dubious when I approached this book, it was our book clubs selection for April. The classification " Young Adult" was also somewhat off putting I was , in the back of my mind, expecting a Hunger Games look alike. I could not have been more wrong. This book gripped me from the first to last page. I discovered an adsorbing believable story populated by characters one could immediately empathize with together with an ending that took me completely by surprise, but what should you expect from a Dr Who scriptwriter.
