The Midnight Sun : a novel
By Cecilia Ekback
It’s Sweden, 1855. There’s been a massacre on one of Lapland’s mountains by one of the indigenous Sami people. The Minister of Justice dispatches his son-in-law, a geologist, along with his daughter, to investigate. There, the shocking truth they discover about the murders and what lies behind them will only be matched by what they discover about themselves.
The Forgotten Girls : a novel
By Owen Laukkanen
She was a forgotten girl, a runaway found murdered on a train through the northern Rocky Mountains and, with little local interest, put into a dead file. But she was not alone. When Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere of the joint FBI-BCA violent crime force stumble upon the case, they discover a horror far greater than anyone expected–a string of murders of young women drifters.
