Wolves have come for the children of Keelut. Three children have been taken from this isolated Alaskan village, including the six-year-old boy of Medora and Vernon Slone. Wolf expert Russell Core arrives in Keelut to investigate the killings and learns of the horrifying darkness at the heart of Medora. When her husband returns from a desert war to discover his boy dead and his wife missing, he begins a maniacal pursuit that cuts a bloody swathe across the frozen landscape. As Core attempts to rescue Medora from her husband's vengeance, he comes face to face with an unspeakable secret about the indestructible bonds of family, and the untamed animal in the soul of every human being.

If you've read Busy Monsters, you'll be shocked that the same man authored this book. Clearly, Giraldi has some serious range.
This is a violent, tense novel that starts out like a fever dream, and only ratchets up the weird from there. It's pace is unrelenting, and the atmosphere so dark, brooding, and cold that at times I thought I could see my breath!
A taut, gripping thriller that I couldn't put down. Highly recommended.
