When an empty fishing dinghy drifts into the ice-choked harbour of Uummannaq, Constable David Maratse is determined to find the missing occupants of the boat at all costs. And, when he finds human blood and hair stuck to the hull, even more so.
Inspired by the Scandinavian and Greenlandic Christmas Calendar tradition, this Jack Londonesque crime adventure story is intended to be read through the long, dark days and nights of December, transporting the reader to the far north of Greenland where the sun has already set, and the only light is from the moon reflecting on the sea ice and snow, and the Northern Lights carpeting the black night sky.
The Wild, Savage, and Frozen Hearted features David Maratse, the quiet, uncomplicated, but resourceful constable who first appeared in The Ice Star and Seven Graves, One Winter. The tale told in The Wild, Savage, and Frozen Hearted is set prior to these books, as we catch up with Maratse early in his career as he struggles to balance his sense of duty with the wild call of Greenland.
If you like adventurous tales with a criminal twist set in remote and challenging locations, then The Last Wild Song of Winter is for you.
Just remember, The Wild, Savage, and Frozen Hearted is not a book. For Maratse’s sake, don’t read ahead, pace yourself, and maybe, just maybe, all will be resolved by Christmas.
Pick up The Wild, Savage, and Frozen Hearted and spend Christmas with Maratse this December!
Pulling the plug for the moment and resetting for a later release. More info to follow (but it might be a little while.)
