It’s been two years since the events in This Red Fire and Sheriff Hartley is now, Special Agent Hartley, a low ranking employee in the FBI’s missing persons unit. Her next assignment takes her to Tikita, Alaska where the FBI has been called in by law enforcement to help them investigate a series of kidnappings. The missing women are being found frozen in the middle of the tundra with only their set of footprints in the snow.
The Inuit citizens in town do not trust outsiders and believe that the murders are being committed by “The White Man”, a creature that has been killing for a century. With the help of a local Sheriff and an old friend, Agent Hartley hurries to find the kidnapper who is already looking out for their next victim.
